Over the past 12 years, ProctorU has worked to balance exam security with test-taker experience. To ensure a level playing field, there are some technical steps our product and proctors must take. This may include getting a test-taker’s permission to remotely access their computer so we can ensure there are no unpermitted resources or applications running.
LogMeIn’s security details can be found here in LogMeIn's Rescue Architecture and Security Overview Brochure. The test-taker can revoke access at any time. Our security procedures and processes are consistently evaluated and updated based on new technology and cheating patterns. Once the LogMeIn applet is closed, the proctor and ProctorU will no longer be able to access the computer or any information on the computer.
