To support you and your students with the use of Proctorio, the WVC Online team has created a module you can import into your course. It contains getting started guides for faculty and students and a practice test you can give to your students so they can get familiar with Proctorio before using it with an official quiz.
Proctorio Information and Practice Test
Some students with disabilities may not be able to use Proctorio. DESP will work with faculty to accommodate these students.
Proctorio has limitations that can present serious problems for students:
- Students cannot take an exam on a phone or tablet. They must use a desktop or laptop. (Chromebooks are OK.)
- Students need their computer to have a web cam and microphone.
- Students must use the Chrome browser.
- Student must install the Proctorio Chrome browser extension.
Faculty need to be prepared to accommodate any student who does not have the proper setup for using Proctorio – this may mean creating an extra copy of your exam in Canvas just for that student.
Setting up Proctorio requires a bit of know-how, in part because it has so many features to choose from.
