WSU Online Students

WSU Online exams are either paper-based or computer-based and are administered in Angel Learning System. Exams can be taken in three different ways: 1) Proctor U, 2) online exam, supervised by an exam proctor, and 3) paper-based, also supervised by an exam proctor.

Request your exam through WSU Online by logging in to Zzusis. You will be required to complete a proctor nomination form provided in Zzusis. After completion and submittal, your exam will be delivered to the exam proctor.  You must submit a separate request form for each exam. Multiple exams can be requested and paid for at the same time. However, please request a separate receipt for each exam.

To request an exam and find the proctor nomination form, please follow the steps below.  Note: The proctor nomination form provided in Zzusis should not be confused with the request form for WSU Tri-Cities instructors.   These are two different forms with different requirements.

Log in to Zzusis at http://zzusis.wsu.edu

  • In the center column, scroll down to the pagelet called Proctored Exams.
  • If you cannot find Proctored Exams, select Online Students at the top of the page next to Main Menu.
  • Choose the appropriate exam you would like to request.
  • Choose Nominate a New Proctor and complete the form. For the exam proctor’s name and address go to the Proctoring FAQs link.
  • Please include your proposed exam date.

You may have to Refresh the main Zzusis screen and/or Proctored Exams pagelet if you experience any problems. After submitting your request, you will receive a confirmation message: “Your request has been received by WSU Online successfully”.  Zzusis will indicate the date the exam was sent to the exam proctor but will not state when they have received it. You will need to contact the exam proctor to confirm your exam has been received.

Please allow two (2) weeks for requested exams to be processed and delivered to the exam proctor. Passwords and paper-based exams will be delivered to the proctor within this timeframe.
