Math Placement Exam Proctoring

Proctoring Options

The University of Wyoming uses ALEKS PPL for their Math Placement Exam and starting August 14, 2019, 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 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-$10

The ALEKS system defaults to this proctoring option for both the initial assessment and the 4 retakes. If you choose to take the exam proctored on campus, the attendant will disable it for you. This system requires you to use a chrome browser, download the Honorlock extension and have a working webcam and microphone. Please see the FAQ below as well as Honorlock's quickstart and guidelines for more information. 

Honorlock FAQ 

Is Remote Proctoring available for ALEKS?

Yes, students may use Honorlock Proctoring to take the ALEKS placement assessments
remotely using a webcam. There is a $10.00 proctoring fee for each attempt. Please
review the Honorlock quickstart and guidelines prior to the test.

Does Honorlock Remote proctoring require scheduling or advance notice?

Honorlock proctoring is available on-demand 24/7, with no scheduling required.

How do I use Honorlock to proctor my ALEKS Placement Assessment?
  1. Using Google Chrome, install the Honorlock Chrome Extension at 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.

***After you've done the above and Honorlock says you are ready to take the exam, if the exam has not appeared and you're being prompted for a password, please just hit submit password. Even though the field is blank that should still open up the exam as long as Honorlock has been fully engaged. It is a glitch that only happens occasionally, usually the exam should automatically open up after you finish authorizing Honorlock.*** 

On Campus Proctoring-no fee

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 and 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-please see the Math Placement Access and Instructions page for more details.   

Upcoming on campus proctoring dates:

If there are no test takers during the first hour and fifteen minutes the proctor will leave and the remainder of the session will be canceled. 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.   

DATE TIME LOCATION
TBD
