Hello there! You're lucky enough to use Proctorio in this course to take your online exams.
This will require the use of a webcam and microphone (internal or external).
Like a bouncer at a night club, you will also be asked to show a photo ID. You can use either a valid drivers license, passport, or school ID.
With Proctorio, there is no need to schedule exams in advance, take them wherever and whenever you want!
Proctorio isn't a creepy person staring at you through a webcam. Instead it's a system of computers that keep an eye on you while you take the test. Computers are great because they are unbiased and don't mind working long hours.
Feel comfortable taking your exams at home and even in your pajamas. Only your professor and school admins have access to recordings. Yes, you are being recorded, so try not to do anything embarrassing.
Last of all, relax! Proctorio isn't designed to add stress. Our wonderful support staff is here 24/7 to help you.
Good luck on your exams!!
When you're ready to set up a proctored exam you will need to use Google Chrome.
Chrome is fast, secure, and works on any computer - best of all it is free!
To install Chrome on your computer please go here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/
Once Chrome has downloaded you'll need to use it to access your exams.
Do not use Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari.
Proctorio also requires a small app that needs to be added to Chrome. You only need to do this once.
It takes less than 30 seconds, please go here.
