Faculty Access to Remote Proctor - To register and review exams.
Remote Proctor Now is an option that is available for you to use for proctoring online courses. Remote Proctor can be used as an alternative to online students driving to a Northwestern campus to take an exam, or finding a testing center to proctor exams for students who live far away. The cost to the student to use Remote Proctor Now is $15 per exam.
Remote Proctor verifies the student's identity, thus providing an assurance that the student taking the exam is the student enrolled in the class. Remote Proctor records audio and video of a student as they take their exam. A web camera and screen capture technology are used to monitor the testing environment, the students activity and the computer screen. Multiple certified exam review specialists then review each recording and report back to you - the instructor - if violations of the testing policy or any kind of cheating or suspicious activity occurred.
If you would like to begin using Remote Proctor, please contact Jake Boedecker to request an account.
