Who is the Learning Coach?
A learning coach (formerly called exam administrator), or LC, is a local education professional who oversees one or more distance education students. Their primary responsibility is to supervise students while they are taking tests to ensure academic honesty. Each student is required to have a local exam administrator who is approved by the student's school of record. The preferred choice for a LC is a licensed elementary, secondary, or post-secondary educator. This includes teachers, counselors, administrators, librarians, and college faculty. In addition, members of the clergy, public librarians, and military education personnel may serve as learning coaches.
