Proctored Exams

​​​Proctored Exam Information

On-campus students will take the exam in the Mortuary Science classroom, Ankeny campus, Building 17 - Room 16.

Online students are required to take all proctored quizzes and exams at: 

  • One of the DMACC Testing Centers
  • A testing center at a college or university - Options can be found at
  • Your home utilizing the online proctoring service selected by the Program. 

Each student taking an online course must complete the Proctor Request form by 8:00 a.m. on the fifth day of the term.

Students will need to complete this form EACH AND EVERY semester in which you have an online course.  Please note that if any information is missing (like the name of the proctor, the email address of the proctor or any other items) your passwords will not be sent to the proctor.

We require the students utilize the most recent version of Chrome for the exams.

1. Honorlock Option

Honorlock will proctor your exams this semester. Honorlock is an online proctoring service that allows you to take your exam from the comfort of your home. You DO NOT need to create an account, download software, or schedule an appointment in advance. Honorlock is available 24/7, and all that is required is a computer, a working webcam/microphone, your ID, and a stable internet connection.

To get started, you will need Google Chrome and download the Honorlock Chrome Extension.

When you are ready to complete your assessment, log into your school’s learning management system (e.g. Blackboard, Canvas, etc.), go to your course, and click on your quiz or exam. Clicking "Launch Proctoring" will begin the Honorlock authentication process, where you will take a picture of yourself, show your ID, and complete a scan of your room. Honorlock will be recording your exam session through your webcam, microphone, and recording your screen. Honorlock also has an integrity algorithm that can detect search-engine use, so please do not attempt to search for answers, even if it's on a secondary device.

The testing center must be a community college or university which can provide a quiet testing area with a computer that has internet access. If you are have trouble finding a testing center, you may use this link:

The testing center may charge a fee, but that is up to each individual testing center. If they charge a fee, the student will be responsible for the fee.
