What does proctoring mean to me and how important is it to my education? What are my responsibilities to ensure the integrity of the exam and the proctor monitoring it?
The reader can infer that Proctor is a highly respected, and even feared individual in Salem. He speaks his mind, and strikes down any malevolence. For this, Proctor has a very good reputation in the town. He maintains this good name by being very immersed in town issues, but being detached when not needed. Unlike many of the other characters, Proctor lives away from the town center. This is symbolic of his stance in conflicts and his opinion of Salem’s leadership. When all the leaders of Salem erupt into a frenzy about the possible issue of witchcraft, Proctor silences the chaos by asking if anyone can “speak one minute without we (Salem citizens) land in Hell again?” (30). Later in the scene, Proctors goes even further to point out how the current ministry is broken by saying, “I mean it solemnly...I like not the smell of this ‘authority’” (31). His distrustfulness of nature is what makes him the leading protagonist against the many ensuing problems so deeply ingrained into Salem’s population. Proctor is not only unwilling to join the current ministry due to its blind leader, but also the first character to see the irrationality of

Proctor is a humble farmer in the small town he lives in. He is a man of high stature, a common man. Among all common men they all share similar qualities: they try to provide for their family, mind their own business, and they make mistakes. In this particular case, Proctor does make some very big mistakes. Proctor may seem to the reader as a hero, as the way he defends his point of view and tries to fight off temptations and evils around him, but he is not
Reputation is something that one holds above their head to keep their good name safe. Everyone has their own reputation that they have made up for themselves in their own mind. Not only have they made one up for themselves but others make one for them too. There are several people in the Crucible who value their reputation over the truth. Having a good reputation on one’s name is good in the small town of Salem. It helps to have a good name because it makes people want to help with business. There were three important people in the Crucible who valued their reputation the most, John Proctor, Abigail Williams, and Parris.

Proctor brace that a person’s honor, name, and the principles by which he lives are more important than even life itself. He proves that by proving that statement true, by diying to brace his name, honor, and the principles by which he lives. Other ways that he proved that too, is by taking importance of his friends’ opinion, and showing guilt of the sinning he has done; the affair with
When a teacher is presented with this conflict, going against standard regulations may be tempting. To regulate this, many states have placed strict guidelines where the students’ teacher is not the individual proctoring the test. However, there are still several states that have the teacher administer test to his or her own students, often times without another proctor in the room. This inconsistency between state regulations also proves the biased separation between how students are tested from state to state, causing certain students more opportunities for assistance than others. With this lack of security, it becomes incredibly easy for teachers to go against common regulations, such as allowing more time on sections, allowing students to go back and work on previous sections, or answering any municipal questions the children may ask, or major, such as changing a student’s attempted answer to correct, or opening a test before the test date and teaching the students the exact test questions. These frightening test practices send a message that “examiners should take into consideration the appropriate changes to be done, keeping in mind the professional and standardization of the test” (Farah). Although these test tampering methods can be seen as the teachers way of assisting students with academic disabilities that do not receive the help they need, the
