Online Exam Proctoring

ProctorU Overview

ProctorU is an online proctoring service for test takers taking exams online. The proctors use a three-step process to replicate the face-to-face proctoring experience over the Internet.

  1. Proctors connect with the test taker via web cam.
  2. Proctors monitor the test taker's computer screen in real time. 
  3. The proctors authenticate the test taker's identity using a multi-factor process. 

Through this process, the proctors can see the test taker, see what they are doing, and know who they are monitoring.
