When students are taking quizzes and/or exams online, proctoring can occur through the use of proctoring software, such as Proctorio, Respondus Monitor, or ProctorU.
Proctorio and Respondus Monitor are automated proctoring technologies that allow students with a webcam and an internet connection to complete exams and quizzes while on camera; services do not use live proctors but instead use an automated algorithm to report on any exam session irregularities, which can be reviewed and interpreted by the class instructor.
ProctorU is a “proctoring technology that includes human supervision, including a live proctored launch, continuous monitoring, active proctor intervention to stop suspicious behavior,” and reporting, which can be reviewed and interpreted by the class instructor.
