For ProctorU students: Your Quiz, Test, or Exam with ProctorU will use one of three ProctorU test options. Please check with your instructor and take the required steps to be ready.


Contact your Instructor and ask which one of the following three proctoring services will be used for your quiz, test, or exam.

Record+ - exams are recorded without a live proctor.  Students do not schedule Record+ exams in advanced.  Follow your instructor’s directions within your Blackboard course site

Live+ - exams are recorded and a live proctor is present throughout the exam.  Live+ exams must be scheduled by the student at least 72 hours in advance and according to the instructor’s directions

Review+ - exams are recorded and a live proctor is present to confirm the student’s identity prior to the start of the exam only.  Review+ exams must be scheduled by the student at least 72 hours in advance and according to the instructor’s directions in the Blackboard course site
