How do I take my proctored final exams?

South Carolina will be lifting the temporary exemption which allowed online proctoring. All course final exams taken after on or after December 15, 2021 will follow the process in this article. If you complete your final exam prior to that date, you can complete with an online proctor through Examity. See directions for that by clicking here.

When you are ready to take your final exams with AceableAgent, you'll need to complete it with a proctor. This is true for both your Unit I and Unit II exams.

Follow these steps to take your proctored final exam:

Step 1: Determine where you'll take your proctored final exam.

It's important that you find a proctor that meets the state's requirements. Check them out below:
  • You must have your exam proctored at a state approved educational facility. These include: local public libraries, local community colleges or universities, learning centers, or local high schools.
  • Your proctor should be a professional business person or educator and must be employed by your proctoring location.
  • Unacceptable proctoring facilities and/proctors include:
    • Education centers at businesses
    • Anyone working in the real estate industry
    • Realtors offices
    • Real Estate schools
    • Real Estate brokers
    • Real Estate instructors 
    • Anyone related to you by blood, marriage, or any other relationship.

Step 2: Schedule your exam

Once you find a location and proctor that works for you, call or email them to schedule a time to take the exam. 

Step 3: Prep for the exam! 

We have a couple things available to help you study, including a study guide and practice tests. You can find these in the Study Tools section of the course menu.
Some other things you’ll need to take the exam:
  • A laptop or desktop computer
  • A government-issued ID
  • A basic calculator with no advanced functions or letters on the keypad

Step 4: Go get proctored!

Once you get checked into the proctoring location, pull up your Aceable course to the last screen.
  • If you’ve haven’t been back through the course at all, you’ll be dropped back onto this page.
  • If you have been reviewing, you can easily get back to this page by clicking Continue Course

Step 5: Get your proctor’s email address

Ask the proctor for the email address where they want to receive the unlock code. Enter it in the field provided and click Send instructions
Note: if you’re sending the email but the proctor isn’t receiving it, tell them to check their spam folder. It might be hiding in there.

Step 6: Have the proctor unlock the test

The email we sent them includes their code to unlock your exam. They can entire it in the Exam unlock password” field in the For proctor use only” area.
Once the proctor starts typing, the Unlock exam” button will become clickable.

Step 7: Take the test!

This test is in a similar format to your other course exams.
