ProctorU is an online proctoring service for test taking online. ProctorU is integrated with Iona Blackboard, but can also be used with other online platforms, such as publisher’s websites, at the instructor's discretion.
Online proctors use a three-step process to replicate the face-to-face proctoring experience over the internet that includes:
Connecting with the test taker via web cam.
Monitoring the test taker's computer screen and surface area in real time.
Authenticating the test taker's identity using a multi-factor process.
Through this process, proctors can see the test taker, identify the test taker, and monitor the test taker.
