What are proctored exams?

Proctored exams are tests where students are monitored in some way while taking the exam. Traditionally, proctored exams are done under direct supervision of the instructor or in a testing center. In an online course, those options are not always feasible or practical.

As an online student, there are two proctoring options your instructor may utilize instead of requiring you to physically come to UofL’s campus:

1. Face-to-Face Proctoring

Face-to-face proctoring requires the student to obtain a proctor on their own. You will take your exam in the presence of the proctor and the proctor will submit the exam back to the instructor. Review the Face-to-Face Proctoring page for more information and forms.

2. Online Proctoring

Online proctoring utilizes Respondus Lockdown Browser to monitor students taking an exam online. Review the Online Proctoring page for more information, guides, and forms.
