2.3 Managing Proctors

You can add a proctor to your class to ensure security in exam settings. Proctors can log in to their own computer and perform proctoring duties using the Proctor Tools utility from the Class Homepage. Proctors can authorize students to start a test as well as authorize grading of a test. To authorize a student, the proctor must first verify the student's identity, and then enter the proctor password to allow the student to begin or to grade the test. A proctor can enter his or her password at the student's workstation (local authorization). Proctors also have the ability to authorize the student from their own computer (remote authorization). The benefit of using remote authorization is that the proctor does not need to enter his or her password in front of the student.

When a student attempts a test that is proctored, an Authorize screen is displayed. This screen indicates that the student requires authorization. Typically, a proctor is physically present in the same computer lab during testing sessions. When notified by the student, proctors can also conveniently authorize a student exam session from their own work station using Proctor Tools. Proctors can then notify the student(s) they are giving permission to. See Figure 2.5.

Note: A user with the role of Proctor (set by an administrator or an instructor with additional privileges) has proctor privileges in any class in which he or she is not registered as a student. This means that such a user does not need to be registered into the class to perform proctor duties in your class.
