A proctor is an approved person that administers an exam to a BMCC student and agrees to fulfill the proctor responsibilities required by BMCC. The proctor will verify a student’s identity by checking a photo ID and will ensure academic integrity guidelines during exams are followed (e.g., no notes, textbooks, outside assistance, etc.).
Some online courses may require students to take one or more tests/exams in a proctored setting during the course. Check your course syllabus in Moodle to determine whether or not your course requires a proctor. It is the student’s responsibility to locate and designate an acceptable proctor.
This is an exam taken online through Moodle under the administration of a proctor. Your proctor will need to have a computer with internet access available for you to take your online exams. You will not be permitted to utilize your own personal computer. Once you have accessed your exam in Moodle, the proctor will enter a password that will open the exam for you.
You can view your account details anytime by logging into Student Records or from the BMCC website and click on the Student Records Icon. If you need help with your Empower Student Records password you can contact:
Please refer to the Academic calendar for specific semester dates. Most online classes are offered for 15 weeks in an asynchronous format, meaning you log into class each week at a time that is convenient for you unless otherwise stated by your instructor. That does not mean, however, that frequent and consistent access to the online class is not required, in fact, we strongly encourage it. Online classes may also meet online at scheduled times for chat sessions; this will be determined by the instructor in each course.
You must log on and complete all weekly assignments. Simply contacting your instructor does not count as attending. Attendance and class participation is extremely helpful in developing a thorough understanding of the material covered in this course. It is a policy of BMCC, set by the Board of Regents, that weekly attendance in online classes is mandatory. As with on campus classes, BMCC policy states that seventy percent (70%) attendance is required to receive a grade of C or better.
