How it works
Easily run an exam with a specific start and end time
Verify your students’ identity online to ensure that the right students are taking your test
Monitor student activity and generate an easy-to-understand proctor report that flags irregular student behavior
Assess students using a variety of question types—multiple choice, word answer, fill in the blank, matching and long answer
Instantly grade and analyze student performance—auto-grade exams upon submission
New capabilities for monitoring each student’s activity, including:
- Webcam and screen video recording
- Monitoring of web traffic
- Forced full screen for duration of exam
- Tab checker: No open browser tabs for duration of the exam
- Disable print, block downloads and prevent screenshot capture so exam content can’t be shared
Our solution uses machine learning to report irregular behavior indicative of cheating. A follow-up proctor report flags suspicious behavior, so you can investigate as you see fit.
Students must use Google Chrome and a webcam-enabled laptop or computer.
Powered by proctoring software trusted at over 400 institutions
