How do I Write Exams?

Exam Types

Within most eSchoolBC courses, there are practice quizzes and major exams.

Practice Quizzes

Typically, the practice quizzes can be done at home and are for your own practice (though they may count towards your final grade in a minor way).

Major Exams

The major exams (eg. Unit Exams, Module Exams, Midterms and/or Finals) must be done in a controlled environment to ensure the quality and authenticity of your final course grade.

These exams have passwords attached to them, which can be entered by an approved invigilator.


Central School:  Any eSchoolBC teacher is an approved invigilator.  Simply drop-in to Central during the open hours, and any eSchoolBC teacher would be happy to assist you in writing your exam.

Home School:  If you are a student at another SD23 school, you can write an exam with your eSchoolBC local contact.  Track them down and arrange a time to write your exam.

Other Options:  If you live outside the Kelowna area, you are responsible for arranging an invigilator.  Other Online Schools within the province will accommodate you.  Also, you can ask within your home school or college for a volunteer invigilator.  Direct family is typically not approved.  Once you've arranged an invigilator, simply ask them to e-mail your eSchoolBC teacher from their work account.  If approved, your teacher will supply the necessary information for assisting you with your exam.
