Proctored Online Testing At Truman
Beginning with the Summer 2020 sessions, Truman State University will offer the use of Proctorio as our automated online/remote test proctoring service.
WHAT IS A PROCTORED EXAM?
A proctored exam is an exam that is supervised by a person or service that ensures the identity of the test taker and the integrity of the test taking environment. Proctored testing can occur in an on-ground classroom with your instructor, with a online/remote test proctoring services, like Proctorio, or at a physical testing facility on-campus or off-campus.
WHAT IS PROCTORIO?
Proctorio allows students with a webcam and a broadband internet connection to complete their exams while on camera; the service does not use live proctors but instead uses an automated algorithm to report on any exam session irregularities.
The service is not free to students. Students may be charged up to $10 per exam in each course (Discounts may occasionally in effect and are not under the control of Truman). Because of this, instructors MUST provide information in the syllabus regarding the fact that proctored exams will be required, that there are technical requirements, and that students must be ready to pay for incurred costs online at the time of the exam. If the instructor plans to use more than 2 proctored exams, students should be instructed to choose the “course fee” model instead of the “individual test fee” model as they pay for the first exam and they will be charged a bundle price equal to two individual exams. Subsequent exams for that course would then be conducted at no additional charge to the student.
All instructors choosing to use Proctorio will be required to include a statement regarding the service within their syllabi. Click to access a model statement.
