What is Proctorio?

Proctorio is a secure online proctoring service software that integrates with Canvas and works within your Chrome web browser to monitor test takers for suspicious behaviors. This automated proctoring system lets instructors set the controls for each exam with the click of a mouse. Salt Lake Community College, along with several other Utah colleges and universities, has partnered with Proctorio to provide virtual proctoring options for fully online courses, but it can also be used for on-campus and hybrid courses. Note: Proctorio brings many robust testing center security features to a virtual environment. It does not replace the testing center security features but enables additional options for instructors to use to tailor exam options for their students. Proctorio is SLCC’s online proctoring solution to ensure academic integrity.
