What does the word proctor mean when your speaking about a class that you have taken?
I went and took a class and was talking about it to a former teacher who thinks they are really above everyone else. In the mist of telling about what happened with how it all turned out this person ask who the proctor was? Well the person who gave instructions for the class intruduced himself by his name and as a dot officer and nothing else. Which by the way was an excellent instructer.
