Proctoring Online Quizzes
Proctoring a quiz validates its integrity by providing varying levels of supervision for students taking the quiz. Lone Star College offers multiple options for proctoring quizzes. Contact your instructor for specific proctored testing requirements.
Lone Star College Testing Centers
Lone Star College Testing Centers provide in-person proctoring for online quizzes. Students enrolled in online or hybrid courses can take online quizzes at the testing center. Prior arrangements with the testing center must be made by the faculty member.
In addition, students can find alternate testing centers for completing proctored quizzes outside of LSC. Certified testing centers can be found on the National College Testing Association website. When using alternate testing sites, students are required to complete the Proctor Agreement Form for Alternate Testing Sites and Proctors and submit the completed form to their instructor for approval prior to the quiz.
NOTE: Respondus LDB and Monitor function on Chromebooks and iPads.
Respondus Monitor is a companion application to LockDown Browser that uses webcam and video technology to dissuade cheating during online quizzes. Respondus Monitor is not a live proctoring solution. The webcam recordings are saved and available for review through the Respondus Dashboard within D2L. For more information, you can view the following Overview. The cost mentioned in this video for Respondus LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor is paid for by Lone Star College.
ProctorU provides two online proctoring services:
- ProctorU Review+ provides live proctored ID verification. Once the ID has been verified, the student's webcam and screen are recorded for later review by a live proctor. Live proctors will review any instances that are flagged by the system as irregular and will escalate all suspicious behavior to the instructor. This service also retains recordings of each session that the instructor can review.
- ProctorU Live+ is a live online proctoring service that allows students to schedule exam sessions with a live proctor who will monitor the entire testing session.
NOTE: If students are concerned about privacy issues related to using their webcams, please direct them to Proctoring and Privacy.
