Notaries are well-qualified to serve as proctors. A background check is the key qualification for a proctor
Many educational institutions are expanding their curriculum to allow students to take classes and study online. But when it comes to taking tests, it’s still essential to have a physical proctor present to ensure students don’t cheat.
When a student takes tests for an online course, typically the student is required to take the test outside the home — a business or anywhere outside the residence with an Internet connection. To ensure academic integrity, an Independent Test Proctor is typically assigned to meet the student at the testing location. Notaries are well-qualified to serve as proctors.
Though proctoring does not require a Notary commission, many Notaries are background checked, whether through the commissioning process as in California or individually as part of working as a signing agent A background check lets the school know the Notary is a model citizen. The student knows the Notary is trustworthy and can be comfortable.
