Proctored Exam

A proctored exam means the exam must be administered under the supervision of a neutral third party. Students may schedule an appointment at one of our TBR testing centers or an instructor approved alternative proctor. It is strongly recommended students schedule their proctor appointments well in advance. Testing centers have a limited number of seats. Visit the Steps for Obtaining a Proctor (new window) page for instructions and a list of TBR testing centers.

Automatic Grading

Most assessments are auto-graded as they are submitted. However, assessments that include the following types of questions are typically not auto-graded:

Instructors can answer questions about when or how an assessment will be graded.

Retake an Assessment

This decision is at the discretion of the instructor. If a student misses an exam or an assignment for any reason, the student should contact your instructor. TN eCampus cannot override instructor decisions on grades or make-up work.
