A proctored test is a test that is supervised by someone, referred to as a proctor, who verifies the identity of the test taker and maintains academic integrity. Proctored tests may be administered in-person or remotely. For in-person tests, school officials are responsible for overseeing students during the testing period. With remote proctoring, students’ identities are confirmed through a webcam. Remote proctored tests may also require students to be monitored and suspicious activity may be flagged.
A proctored test refers to a school official or software program that supervises students as they write a test. The school invigilator or software will ensure that students follow academic integrity standards for the duration of their test.
