About EHS

The Electronic High School has been in operation since 1994 and provides a wide variety of courses to Utah students. Additional courses are added each year as interest and funding permit. The Electronic High School courses have been developed by master teachers and are correlated to Utah core standards and objectives. We anticipate you will experience the excitement and pride our faculty have in each of the internet-delivered courses offered through the Electronic High School.

We offer a flexible, open-entry / open-exit curriculum. With a few exceptions, students are able to work at their own pace until the class is completed. We expect students to complete each class within six months.(The one exception is Fitness for Life quarter classes which must be completed in 7 weeks.) Work closely with your teacher if you are approaching the six month time frame and have not completed the class.

Experience tells us that as a student, you will spend about 50 hours to complete a quarter credit, or about 200 hours for a full credit. The courses are rigorous and require dedication by our students; however, we work hard to ensure your success.

The Electronic High School is accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission. Students who complete courses from the Electronic High School have a course completion certificate mailed to their local school of residence with the grade and credit earned. The Electronic High School is able to grant diplomas to a restricted group of Utah students: those who are home-schooled exclusively, those who have dropped out of school and their class has graduated, and district referrals. Unfortunately we do not grant out-of-state students a diploma.

Proctored final Tests

Each quarter class requires each student pass a proctored final test before credit is awarded.

  • After you have successfully completed the coursework for a quarter class , your EHS teacher will give you access to the proctored final exam..

    The Proctored Area has a list of EHS-certified proctors and you see those available in your area. NOTE: Some schools have certified proctors whose names are not on the list. ASK YOUR COUNSELOR if your school has an unlisted certified proctor.

    From the list, contact your preferred proctor to arrange the date and time for the test. It's best to contact the proctor in person to arrange a date and time.

    • If a proctor is not listed for your school, please contact a local Utah teacher or librarian and request they sign up to become an EHS proctor at http://www.schools.utah.gov/ehs/proctor/ProctorSignUp.htm
      (When the proctor has signed up, EHS will contact your suggested proctor and go through the process of certifying the proctor.)

    Let EHS know which proctor to send the test password to. Once you have arranged a date and time with the proctor you come back to proctored area web page and click Notify the proctor manager and give EHS your login information and then the proctor list comes up. 

    Click the radio button next to the proctor's name who has agreed to proctor your test and click the button at the bottom which says I've arranged to take the test with the proctor. This action generates an e-mail to the proctor with your test name and the password to unlock the test. 

    Keep in mind that EHS needs at least one day in advance to get the e-mail sent to a certified proctor and longer if the proctor has not yet been certified.

  • Taking the test : You arrive at the proctor location (a public school or library, or at a certified testing center) and present proof of your identity (a picture id, etc.)
  • You sit down at the proctor's computer and log-in to EHS http://ehs.uen.org and then click to go into the proctored area (listed in your My Courses section on the right side of your EHS Home Page).
  • Click the Proctored Finals area, scroll down to the bottom of the first page to find the final test.

Keep in mind EHS needs at least one day in advance to get the e-mail sent to a certified proctor and longer if the proctor has not yet been certified.

NOTE: Utah students who do not complete their EHS courses including their proctored final before they move out of Utah can contact The American Academy to review options for continuing coursework and completing their proctored test..

Proctoring for EHS

At the end of each quarter class, students have one month to take and pass a proctored final test. Proctors are drawn from the Utah education community.

Proctors may NOT be any of the following:

  • Relative or friend of student
  • Employer of student
  • Personal tutor of student
  • Ecclesiastical leader
  • Athletic coach, assistant coach, athletic administrator, or athletic academic counselor
  • Someone with an invested interest in the student's eligibility to compete in extracurricular activities (i.e. sports, theater, choir, etc.)

Proctors MUST be one of the following:

  • School guidance counselor licensed by Utah
  • Full-time school teacher licensed by Utah
  • School principal or vice principal licensed by Utah
  • Librarian licensed by Utah
  • Local college testing center staff or administration

Sign up to proctor at: http://www.schools.utah.gov/ehs/proctor/ProctorSignUp.htm

Exams must be administered at a public school or educational facility – never at home. The testing site must have access to an Internet-connected computer at which an EHS student may take EHS exams.

The student must remain under the supervision of the proctor for the entire duration of the exam. If the student is uncomfortable with the proctoring situation (e.g. the setting is one-on-one with the proctor), a parent, friend, or chaperone may be present, along with the proctor, so long as the student does not interact with that person during the exam. Receiving assistance from any person during an exam is considered cheating and is grounds for receiving a failing grade for the course.

  • The student may not leave the room during the examination, except for an emergency.
  • The exam must not be duplicated in any way.
  • If for some reason the proctor is unable to proctor an exam after receiving the password, please call the EHS. Proctors never give the password to another person or the student.
  • If the student is suspected of cheating, call EHS as soon as possible. Proctors will receive more instructions for administering the exam when the exam password is e-mailed to the proctor.
