Proctorio is an online automated invigilation service integrated with Canvas that offers remote proctoring so students can take Canvas exams from anywhere. With Proctorio, each student's exam session is monitored by recording video and audio, along with screen and keyboard activity, during the exam to try to ensure exam integrity. While writing an exam, students are prevented from accessing other applications, websites, or browser tabs. Students go through an authentication process before they start an exam; there is no need to have them pre-register for specific exams. The Proctorio software analyzes the recording and flags potential issues for instructor review, such that instructors have the final decision on whether the activity constitutes misconduct. No Proctorio staff can access the recordings during or after the exam sessions; the recordings are assessed solely by the Proctorio algorithms and the course's instructor and instructional team.
