About Proctorio

Proctorio is an online third-party remote proctoring service that allows for proctored Canvas exams and quizzes to be taken at home with a student’s computer. Students can access the Proctorio servers 24 hours a day and every testing session is recorded.  This is not a live proctoring system.  Each testing session is recorded, and the software flags any suspicious behaviors for review by the Professor.  The program includes a lock down browser to prevent students from accessing other digital files from the machine they are testing on.

If you have a student with a current accommodation letter you received formally from the Office of Accessibility Services, make sure you complete these important steps after making your Proctorio exam flexible:

  • Schedule the exam for the local students with the UVU Accommodative Testing Center,
  • Refer distance students to the Live Proctoring section of the OTL Exam Proctoring page to set up their proctor.
  • Contact the Office of Teaching and Learning if you have a distance student with this accommodation to finalize details with the certified exam proctor.

Students with current accommodation

Additionally, students with a current accommodation letter sent formally to their instructor may, in limited cases, qualify to utilize a Live Proctoring option instead of using Proctorio. These students should not be held responsible for any fees associated with using a Live Proctoring option instead of Proctorio.  Contact the Office of Accessibility Services for details.
