eLearning Course Exams

NOTICE: Due to the need to social distance under the GHC and BOR guidelines, until further notice, GHC will not offer in-person proctored testing in our on-campus testings centers.

As a student at GHC, we want you to know that the method of testing in each GHC online course is determined by the instructor of that course section. Therefore, the first week of the course, you should read the course syllabus or policies to learn about the testing method that will be used. If you have questions about how testing will be done in any course, contact your instructor for guidance.

Respondus LockDown Browser

Some instructors prefer that their students take tests using Respondus Lockdown Browser. Check your course syllabus, or with your instructor, to see that applies to your class. If it does, go to the Respondus LockDown Browser help and information page within the GHC D2L Student Guide.
