NOTE: We are in the process of removing the extension based language that auto-injects when you enable a ProctorU exam in your LMS. Please note this change will only be reflected in Google Chrome. To see this change, exams will need to be entered by instructors via Google Chrome and NOT Firefox. In the meantime, please add the following verbiage to your quiz descriptions:
“NOTE: You will need to utilize the Guardian Secure Browser for your exam which you can download here. Once you've downloaded the browser, open and then navigate to your Learning Management System to begin your exam.”
NOTE: This page was created for you to copy and paste any or all of this language you choose to include in your syllabus.

Prepare for exam day by reading this article.
Do you have any testing accommodations?
The ProctorU platform is fully ADA compliant. If you require special testing accommodations, I will need to let ProctorU know. Please work with me prior to your exam to make sure your accommodations are noted in their system.
Does it negatively interfere with my computer?
ProctorU does not permanently impact your computer in any way. You will be able to see everything your proctor is doing while you are connected. Once your exam is over and you have closed out of your chat session and video page with ProctorU, it completely removes the screen sharing client from your computer. You may also uninstall the Guardian Browser after each exam session if you choose to do so.
Does ProctorU breach my privacy rights?
Still have questions or concerns?
