Remote Exam Monitoring

Remote Exam Monitoring and Proctoring Options

RECOMMENDED OPTION
Respondus Monitor + LockDown Browser

Note: Respondus cannot be used for Examity exams

  • No cost to faculty or students
  • Uses the LockDown Browser to prevent students from accessing the web or other applications during the exam
  • Using the students webcam and microphone, the Monitor system records their activity during their attempt
    • If the Monitor AI senses suspicious behavior, it will automatically flag the students video for you to review later
    • View full recordings of all student attempts at any time after the exam
  • No need for scheduling or registration by the instructor or students
  • Not subject to proctoring capacity (especially good for very large classes)

Please see the following documentation to get started using Respondus

Examity is currently NOT AVAILABLE
