FVHS Proctor Introduction:
To assure credibility in our program and with our accreditor, we require confirmation that a student is adhering to the FVHS test requirements for each quiz, test or exam involved in any of our programs. As such a self-appointed proctor is required for all students to interact with our online testing platforms.
An individual who supervisors and confirms that a student is taking an exam. A proctor is obtained by the student and can be any adult including: family members, heads of households, friends, neighbors, roommates, or any other adult acquaintance that knows the student personally. The proctor will be required to login their name and relationship to the student at the beginning of each quiz, test, or exam section/module. A proctor will be required under penalty of perjury to provide their keyboard typed e-signature from the students account as per the Congressional E-Sign Act of 2000. Proctors are not required for other activities within the system including study sessions.
Proctor Process Explained:
The “Proctor Registration” process at FVHS is completed online and includes the proctor personal information, the relationship (to the student), disclaimer acknowledgement and Proctor Agreement acknowledgement. The proctor “designee” must “confirm” receipt of this request by opening an email sent to the email address that is provided. This email address must differ from the one used by the FVHS student when they initially register themselves at FVHS. The student can enter all proctor information but the proctor is required to complete the proctor electronic signature as part of the test module confirmation.
The student is required to select a proctor prior to each test and this declaration is maintained within the students permanent records. These will be available for review along with other student records by any authorized individuals including Franklin Virtual administration and staff and third party school or employer personnel based on student approval.
Please note: We use both live teacher involvement and a proprietary algorithm to monitor student actively. Should it be determined that a student has cheated, their account will be suspended (deactivate). A formal appeal must be provided to FVHS for reactivation.
