Contest Proctors 


Almost every contest requires a proctor. There are four different types of proctors depending on the contest. 
  1. Testing Proctor: Proctors students as they take an online exam. 

  2. Presentation Proctor: Ensures that the contestant/team records the contest presentation in one take. The proctor is required to read a statement at the beginning and end of the recording. 

  3. Remote Hands-On Proctor: This proctor needs to be an industry expert. They will be required to gather “evidence” of the finished project which they will upload for the judge panel. For you to better understand who qualifies as a proctor, and to better assist your proctor in understanding their roles, please read and share this Roles and Responsibilities document with them. 

  4. Computer Work Proctor: This proctor will monitor student work as they compete on the computer. They will make sure students use no outside resources and make sure that the competitors are not receiving help from the advisor, students, or others. 

  • Some contests only require students to sign an integrity statement (contest does not require supervision).

Steps to Prepare 
 

Step One: Review the contest proctor types and determine what type and how many proctors you will need. 

Step Two: Have every proctor complete the Liability Form. They will complete the form as the "participant." The upload link is here and also on the SkillsUSA Georgia website.

Step Three: Make sure the proctor knows the date and time of the contest. All contest guides outline the contest timeline. 

 

Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Can a contest proctor proctor more than one contest?
A: YES! The only tricky part is when it is an industry remote hands-on contest. The proctor must be proficient in each skill area. Remember, these people are gathering contest details for the judge panel. 

 

Q: Is the proctor judging the contest? 

A: NO! They are simply there to monitor the contest per the contest guidelines or gathering details of the finish contest for the judge panel. No proctor is a judge. 

 

Q: Can the proctor be a school employee? 

A: Yes, a non-SkillsUSA advisor can serve as a proctor. We would encourage you to involve your administration so they can see the great work your students are doing! 

 

Q: How will the remote hands-on proctor submit the contest data? 

A: You will work with your proctor to submit this via your teacher log in to Championships Hub (more information about the Hub will come out next week). The proctor is NOT allowed to leave until he/she has submitted the data through the hub. 

 

Q: Why does the proctor have to complete a liability form? 

A: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have updated our liability form to include language specifically around COVID concerns. Every single person involved in SkillsUSA Georgia SLSC this year is required to submit a release. 

 

Q: Is virtual proctoring possible? 

A: Remote Hands-On contests cannot be proctored virtually. However, the other contests can be. We have a suggestion on how to use Zoom to proctor virtually. Your chapter is welcome to use any virtual proctoring platform. You can view the Zoom directions here.
