When should I use Proctorio?

Considerations for implementing online proctoring

  • Under normal circumstances, students have a choice between taking the exam at the testing center or being proctored online. Those students without the required technology (webcam, strong internet connection) or a private space in their homes may have chosen to take an exam in a physical testing center. When this is no longer a choice, it makes sense to consider if it is necessary to require a proctored exam due to equity, accessibility, and stress-related concerns. 
  • Consider if an alternative means of assessment is appropriate by reviewing options for exams in Canvas and alternative assessments, or speaking with an instructional designer (keeplearning@umsystem.edu).

When should I use online proctoring?

  • If your program accreditation requires proctored exams for your course or all courses.

When should I use an alternative?

  • When live proctoring is not available due to pandemic or campus closure
  • When all of your students don’t have access to stable internet connection
  • When all of your students don’t have a webcam
  • When all of your students don’t have a quiet space to complete the proctored test at home
  • If any of your students require accommodation for disability; Proctorio is not compatible with some screen readers.
