The Iowa City Test Centers are closed beginning March 18, 2020 until further notice.

From design to delivery, Exam Services coordinates all phases of the proctored exam process for both students and instructors of Distance and Online Education courses.

Proctored exams are completed with supervision. A proctored environment employs security measures such as: identity verification, no access to unauthorized materials, and no access to outside help. Exam Services offers multiple proctoring modes for our online instructors and students:

  • Proctors can deliver both ICON-based online exams and paper-based exams at the Iowa City Test Centers.
  • Students taking an online exam can use the remote proctoring service, Proctorio, on a personal computer.
  • Students can have paper exams sent to any approved Off Campus Test Center.
  • Instructors can schedule exam appointments for students with SDS Accommodations such as extended time and/or reduced distraction.
  • Instructors can schedule exam appointments for students who need a make-up.
  • Instructors or students can schedule exam appointments for non-University of Iowa exams.
