ProctorU is a virtual proctoring service used by many instructors at Boise State University. Online courses, as well as many traditional courses, rely on this service to proctor exams off-campus. Before committing to this testing option, students are advised to verify whether virtual proctoring is used in their course. To get started, test takers must first create an account at ProctorU.

How Does It Work?
The student must have access to a reliable computer. While testing, the proctor can view the student’s screen to ensure that only the exam window is in view. The proctor does not have access to the student’s personal files.
In order to communicate with the proctor, the student must have access to a reliable integrated or stand-alone microphone. The microphone remains active during the testing session.
The student must have access to a reliable integrated or stand-alone webcam. Just as testing centers use security cameras to monitor the room, the proctor will monitor the room by webcam until the test is submitted.
