Proctorio is a remote proctoring service software that works within your web browser to monitor test takers for suspicious behaviors.
Why Do We Need Proctorio?
UTC faculty and students all have a strong interest in making sure that exams are graded fairly and impartially, especially for online tests that students are taking remotely. Proctorio uses software, not people, to monitor for suspicious behaviors, so you can be sure that your exam was proctored fairly and impartially.
How Does Proctorio Work?
Proctorio works within your web browser while taking an exam in your learning management system to monitor for suspicious behavior. Because no stand alone program is needed, using Proctorio is easy and safe.
What are the Minimum System Requirements to use Proctorio?
Proctorio offers a flexible service, which may include recording of video, audio, and screen activity or none of the above. The system requirements are dependent on the exam settings. More info can be found here.
Does Proctorio have a secure browser?
Yes. Proctorio can turn a modern web browser into a full secure browser, disable printing and screen captures, and more.
Do I need to change my quizzes or exams to use Proctorio?
No way! Proctorio can be added seamlessly to your courses as they exist today, and no changes to any course content are required.
