Exam Policy

Each course has different exam protocols depending on the subject.

  1. Be in touch with your teacher to book your exam writing. Organizing final exams requires a little coordination with your school to ensure we have a Palliser staff who will supervise and that the exam and password are made available to your school site.
  2. The Palliser Beyond Borders teacher will confirm that the student has met all the prerequisite skills in preparation for the summative assessment. This is also true for diploma exams. 
  3. Students must work with the teacher through the teaching, learning and assessment process which includes both formative and summative assessment. Students can not hand in assignments the day before an exam or diploma exam and expect that permission will be granted to write a final exam or diploma exam. Teacher feedback and opportunity for improvement is part of the learning process before summative assessments take place. 
  4. Please give your teacher 2-3 days notice to make the arrangements.  Passwords MUST be requested a minimum of a business day in advance for an exam. (IE. Thursday for a Monday writing)
  5. This includes the Outreaches. If Palliser staff are not available we will need to make Proctor arrangements, which require forms and signatures.
  6. Proctor Policy is found here
  7. Proctor form is found here
  8. The plagiarism policy applies to exams and student exams will be nullified if found to have been plagiarized. 

You may be expected to use a lockdown browser which ensures the integrity of the exam and reassures universities that final exam marks are legitimate and our teaching and learning community exercises academic integrity. Universities also use lockdown browsers in their invigilation as well.

If you need a reminder about using the lockdown browsers:

Proctorio online proctoring is the online lockdown browser tool we use to allow for online exam invigilation. Students will encounter similar tools at the post secondary level and we are committed to preparing students for post - secondary learning while preserving our academic integrity. 

Installing Google Chrome -When you're ready to take a proctored exam you will need to use Google Chrome.

Installing the Proctorio Extension - Proctorio also requires a small app that needs to be added to Chrome. You only need to do this once.

Help and Support - The fastest and easiest way to contact support is using "the shield" icon found on the top right of your chrome browser once it is installed. The shield is only present on quiz pages after you install the extension

If you are still having trouble getting Chrome or the extension installed, please send us an email.

Proctorio also has phone support available, please use: 480-428-4089 or 1-866-948-9248

Thank you! You guys were great to work with!
