School Exams

School exams, including midterm and final exams, can be scheduled once all assignments have been submitted and graded. Teacher approval is required to schedule appeal exams.

For 30-level courses, students must write a final exam and a diploma exam.


Photo ID is required for all supervised exams. If you do not have a valid piece of photo identification, we are here to help.

Follow the steps below to get a Vista Virtual School Student ID Card, which will serve as your identification during the quizzes, midterms, and exams.

  1. Subject Line Clarity: Draft an email to with the subject line “Photo ID Request” for faster processing.
  2. Attach a photo: Include a clear, passport-style photo of yourself from the shoulders up on a plain background in the email. 📸✨
  3. Address Verification: Before hitting send, be sure to add your current mailing address to the email.

To avoid delays on exam day, please complete these steps well in advance. Depending on the volume of requests we receive, it may take several weeks to receive your ID card. 


Depending on your course structure and teacher’s preference, you will be asked to use one of the three methods of exam supervision listed below:


Proctorio is an online automated proctoring service that monitors and records (audio and video) students as they write exams. This service records all actions that students take during the exam including:

      • Keyboard strikes and mouse clicks
      • Internet activity
      • Internet connection type and location

This service assists teachers in monitoring exams as it will alert them of any suspicious student activity. If required, teachers can go back and review the video recorded of the student during the Proctorio monitored exam.

For more information, including how to set up Proctorio and the rules and guidelines during a Proctorio monitored exam, please visit our Technical Support page.


Before you call or email us to schedule a time to write your exam, please note the following:

      • Students can write their exams at Calgary Campus at either 9am or 1pm, Monday through Friday.
      • If you require extra writing time (i.e double time; no documentation required), please make this request at the time of booking.
      • If you currently have any VVS teacher approved exam accommodations (documentation required), please notify support staff at the time of booking.
      • Exam computers, approved data booklets/formula sheets, and scrap paper will be provided.
      • Students are required to adhere to the Exam Room Protocol.

Students unable to write an exam in our Calgary campus, or through Proctorio, must arrange for alternate form of exam supervision.

        1. Find a supervisor who meets the required qualifications.
        2. Complete the Exam Supervisor Application Form – signed by the student, parent (where applicable) and the exam supervisor.
        3. Submit the form, at least five days prior to the requested write date, to VVS Support. 

Once the requested supervisor has been approved, students will need to contact that supervisor to set up a time to write their exam. Note: Incomplete forms cannot be processed.

Students can discuss exam writing options and expectations with their teacher. For more information about our exam policies, please see our Policies webpage.
