Online Proctoring Tools at UCO

Online Proctoring at UCO

The Office of Information Technology and the Center for eLearning & Connected Environments have worked together to provide additional exam proctoring options to instructors for the 2020-2021 academic year. OIT and CeCE are now supporting three different exam proctoring tools with a variety of features to allow you, as instructors, the flexibility to select the solution that is most appropriate for your class, content, and teaching style. Registration for training sessions is available for each tool below.

Proctoring is the process of monitoring students during an exam to ensure that the student does not violate the terms of the exam. Instructors are encouraged to use Respondus Monitor, a no-cost automated proctoring solution, when possible. If, however, you have students using Chromebooks or are taking advantage of third-party tools such as textbook integrations that are necessary for the exam, you may consider using Examity, also automated proctoring. For high-impact exams requiring a live proctor, ProctorU is available through a student pay model. Below you will find a comparison chart for each tool to assist you in making a selection.
