A proctored exam is a supervised exam taken online (or sometimes in person). Though the CFx will be given primarily online, the course team reserves the right to offer an in-person option. A proctor ensures the security and integrity of the exam process. A proctor is a liaison between edX and its students to ensure that testing is done under fair and secure conditions. The proctor’s main responsibilities include verifying a government-issued photo ID, monitoring learners during the exam to ensure they do not use unauthorized aides, and ensuring learners follow the instructions outlined by the instructor.
