Six Must-Haves for Online Proctoring


Are you looking to build online proctoring into your programs? Or do you have concerns that your current proctoring solution is not meeting all your needs?

Every online program is unique, and each has a specific set of needs, from proctoring modalities and user support to additional security layers like artificial intelligence and audits. But here are six features your program should never go without:

1. Seamless LMS integration
A simple, straightforward integration with Canvas, Sakai, Moodle, D2L, and Blackboard should be a requirement for any online proctoring solution. Gone are the days of spreadsheets and web forms; automation is expected and necessary when transferring exam details.

2. Multimodal from one platform
Are you researching different proctoring styles? Consider a streamlined approach by selecting a solution that offers a variety of proctoring levels all within a central platform.

3. No waiting
An online proctoring solution should never get in the way; it should simply support the process of facilitating an exam online. If your test-takers are experiencing delays (and likely agitation), this could impact their performance.

4. A laser-focus on learning validation
What assurance do you have that your test integrity is protected? Without sufficient security, your reputation may be at risk. Look for a solution that builds additional security measures into their processes, such as machine learning technology and regular exam audits.

5. Direct, immediate support
Test-takers and instructors must have 24-hour access to support in order to ensure a streamlined experience. As you assess your online proctoring needs, consider your audience in relation to when and where support will be required.

6. Complete transparency
Curious to see how many test-takers have scheduled their exams? What violations have occurred to date? Your solution should offer quick and easy access to all your data, from exam completion rates to violation reports and video files.

You should expect each of these features from your online proctoring solution. When implemented, your assessment program will have the resources needed to detect, deter, and prevent test fraud.
