3.4 Proctored Browser

  • The Proctored Browser is a full-screen mode set up by the instructor.
  • Proctored Browser blocks the student from accessing external web sites or other programs on the computer while taking a Proctored Exam assignment.
  • When used in a monitored setting, such as an on-campus computer lab where the use of other devices or materials is controlled, it prevents students from accessing external aids during the assignment.
  • Initially, the student receives a message saying that they are entering full-screen mode, which they must authorize to proceed. For more details, see Figure 3.1.

  • After the authorization screen, if a student tries to bypass the restricted settings of the Proctored Browser (for example, by pressing a combination of keystrokes that will exit the full screen (Ctrl + Alt + Delete, Esc, etc.)), this will be detected. The student sees a message telling them an email has been sent to the class instructor. The student must then be re-authorized into the assignment by you or by the instructor.
  • Important: Proctored Browser is only compatible with Google Chrome™ and Mozilla Firefox®. It does not work in Internet Explorer®
