When you set up your exam, you have the ability to "Assign" the exam to particular students. Only the students assigned the exam have the ability to take it. Proctorio can be configured to give students the flexibility to take their exams remotely (with Proctorio) or with an approved proctor or testing center. Please note that the option to make it flexible only appears if the quiz is published.

If you wish to give your students the option of using Proctorio or using the testing center, please watch the following video to learn how:

Optional Tips

Depending on the number of students taking the exam, you may consider the following options to save you a few steps:

  • Option A
    • Use when only some students will use Proctorio - Click the small camera icon on the right-hand side to deselect the entire class. Check the box for each student who will be using Proctorio
  • Option B
    • Use when only some students will use a testing center - Uncheck the box next to their individual name.

Note: One method may work quicker than the other depending on how many students you need to facilitate to make it flexible. These changes in the settings of the quiz make it so that only certain students can take the exam at the testing center. It also enables the access code that Proctorio creates to be used at the testing center. It's important that this code is only shared with those authorized to proctor exams at the testing center.
