ALEKS PPL: Proctored Assessment

Before scheduling with ProctorU:
Make sure that you have created an ALEKS PPL account and completed Step 1 and 2 in ALEKS PPL prior to scheduling a proctored ALEKS PPL assessment with ProctorU.

Signing up and scheduling with ProctorU

ProctorU is a live online proctoring service that Chico State contracts with to provide additional scheduling options for completing a proctored ALEKS PPL assessment.

After completing Step 1 and 2 in ALEKS PPL:

1: Create a ProctorU account using your Wildcat email account and agree to the terms and conditions.

2: Find a date and time that works for you to complete a proctored ALEKS PPL assessment. Schedule at least 72 hours in advance to avoid late scheduling fees. Plan to have three hours available for check in, system checks, proctoring instructions, and the two-hour ALEKS PPL assessment.

3: Book and confirm! Pay the $10 proctoring fee. (Additional fees may apply for on demand scheduling.)

4: Prepare and take your proctored ALEKS PPL assessment during your scheduled time. 

5: Review your assessment results and major-related course(s) advised for your first semester.
