Remote Virtual Testing Policies
Remote testing via virtual proctoring service is for Eastern Florida State College students. Until the college can reopen and resume a face-to-face test schedule, EFSC is currently offering remote test options for some assessments and is working to move other exams to remote platforms as they become available. All submissions requesting to test must be reviewed and approved before permission will be granted to test virtually.
- Students must have an EFSC Student ID number prior to requesting remote virtual testing.
- All requests must be approved by the Institutional Test Administrator (ITA) or designee prior to taking the test.
- Once received, requests for remote testing may take up to 5 business days to process. Students will be contacted with "next steps" directions.
- Remote Testing will occur online either with a third-party vendor that requires payment of service fees or via Microsoft TEAMS. Currently enrolled EFSC students have free access to MS Teams as part of their Student Email/Office 365 bundle.
- EFSC reserves the right to change Remote Test Proctor vendors and will make effort to minimize student fees for third-party vendors.
- Students are responsible for all virtual proctoring fees, as well as any EFSC testing fees. Cancelation and refund policies are determined by the third-party vendor. Read all vendor information carefully!
- Retesting policies apply. If retest fee is required, it will be placed on the student account.
- Virtual proctoring requires secure Internet connectivity and bandwidth to properly function. Certain geographic areas may not offer this level of Internet connection. Any fees incurred due to Internet issues are non-refundable.
- Students are responsible for checking the remote virtual site requirements of all remote proctoring services before test day. Additional hardware requirements include a PC or laptop with webcam and microphone. Chromebooks or tablets not supported.
- Students are required to present and display a valid photo ID to the proctor before and during the test session.
- Students may not have access to personal items during test administration, to include cell phones and non-medical electronical devices, watches, external calculators, or recording devices such as cameras or thumb drives.
- Students must test in a well lighted, quiet, secluded area free of distractions and other human contact.
- Students may be monitored by a recorded session with or without a live proctor in the virtual environment. Incidents and/or irregularities will be reported to EFSC’s testing personnel for review.
