Proctorio Online Proctoring Tool

Face-to-face classes that have moved online due to Covid–19 can utilize Proctorio, provided that students are made aware of the requirements before examinations are given.

Proctorio is an online proctoring tool with identity verification, test monitoring, and a number of other features to ensure academic integrity. It is integrated into Blackboard and requires no changes to the content of your course and no extra software downloads are necessary. However, Google Chrome is required for both instructors and students.

Any faculty member wanting to use Proctorio will be required to include the statement below within their syllabus:

All students must review the syllabus and the requirements including the online terms and video testing requirements to determine if they wish to remain in the course. Enrollment in the course is an agreement to abide by and accept all terms. Any student may elect to drop or withdraw from this course before the end of the drop/add period.

Online exams and quizzes within this course may require online proctoring. Therefore, students will be required to have a webcam (USB or internal) with a microphone when taking an exam or quiz. Students understand that this remote recording device is purchased and controlled by the student and that recordings from any private residence must be done with the permission of any person residing in the residence. To avoid any concerns in this regard, students should select private spaces for the testing. The University library and other academic sites at the University offer secure private settings for recordings and students with concerns may discuss location of an appropriate space for the recordings with their instructor or advisor. Students must ensure that any recordings do not invade any third party privacy rights and accept all responsibility and liability for violations of any third party privacy concerns. Setup information will be provided prior to taking the proctored exam. For additional information about online proctoring, you can visit the online proctoring student FAQ.
