Math Placement Exam Proctoring

Proctoring Options

The University of Wyoming uses ALEKS PPL for their Math Placement Exam and requires these exams to be proctored. A student may come to one of the on-campus proctoring sessions at no cost or they may use the online proctoring system, Honorlock, that is integrated into ALEKS for a cost of $10 plus tax per exam attempt. On-campus proctoring is only available at certain times and locations, while Honorlock proctoring is available 24/7. Please see detailed information about each option below. 


Honorlock Proctoring

Cost - $10 plus tax for each exam attempt, via debit/credit card.  Payment will be requested when you log in to take the exam.

Honorlock is the remote proctoring system for ALEKS PPL.  You can take the exam anywhere you have an appropriate testing space, hardware, and good internet connection, and anytime 24/7 with no scheduling required. 

Using Honorlock proctoring requires you to use a Google Chrome browser, download the Honorlock extension.

To be counted as a proctored session you MUST follow all applicable Honorlock guidelines.  Honorlock will not tell you that you are violating a guideline while you are taking the exam.  If one of the guidelines is found violated in the review of your exam your score will not be loaded.

Step-By-Step for using Honorlock

  1. Using Google Chrome, install the Honorlock Chrome Extension (honorlock.com/aleks?v=uwyo).

  2. With the extension installed, navigate to your ALEKS placement assessment and follow the proctoring instructions that appear on-screen. If you are not sure how to navigate to the assessment see the Math Placement Access and Instructions page.

Troubleshooting with Honorlock

FAQ: If Honorlock has launched and told you that you are ok to take the exam and you see a submit password screen, just hit submit even though the field is empty. Honorlock is supposed to automatically submit the password for you but there is a glitch for some students where they must manually hit “submit”.

If you are having a different issue, you may utilize the utilize the 24/7 Honorlock Support or visit the Math Placement Exam Troubleshooting page for help.


On-campus Proctoring

Cost - Free!

Fall and Spring Semester we will have established proctoring dates. They will usually be in 3 hour time blocks, although students will still only have 2 hours to finish the exam.

  • The time block will not be extended if a student shows up when there is less than 2 hours left.

  • The proctor may cancel the session if no one arrives within the first hour and fifteen minutes. 

  • You must present valid ID.

  • Pencils and scratch paper will be provided.

  • Calculators are not allowed.

  • Please note-you will still have to purchase the ALEKS PPL test pack for $15 plus tax. Please see the Math Placement Access and Instructions page for more details.   

Upcoming on-campus proctoring dates

If you plan to arrive after the first hour has passed, please email math-registration@uwyo.edu, so we can alert the proctor that there will be a late arrival. The time block will not be extended, so you will be forfeiting your time to take the exam if you come more than an hour after the session start time.

Took the MPE elsewhere?

If you took the ALEKS PPL math placement exam elsewhere within the last year with a proctor you may be able to transfer your score. See the Math Placement page for how to send a score in ALEKS or email the "Placement Assessments Results" PDF to math-registration@uwyo.edu.
