ProctorU is an online proctoring service that allows students to take exams online while ensuring the integrity of the exam for the institution. The service uses proctors who monitor exam takers in three ways. ProctorU will

  1. Authenticate the test taker’s identity to ensure that the person being monitored is the correct student.
  2. Observe the test taker via a webcam. The student is connected to a real person who guides him/her through the process.
  3. Watch the test taker's screen in real time and can see everything the student is doing both at the location and on screen.
