As an alternative to traditional proctoring, live online test proctoring is available at JSU through ProctorU. This option allows students the opportunity to take their online exams anywhere through the use of a webcam and a reliable high-speed internet connection, under the oversight of a pre-scheduled remote proctor.
Note: The student is responsible for payment to ProctorU of all fees incurred as a result of using their services. The current minimum cost to contract ProctorU's services for an exam is $22.50, which covers an exam that is up to two hours in length. ProctorU defines exam length as the maximum amount of time allowed by the instructor.
Getting started with ProctorU is easy. Just follow these steps:
- Need a web cam? For recommendations, see the Getting Started page on the JSU's ProctorU website.
- Check the technical specifications to make sure computer and web cam requirements are met.
- Schedule an exam by visiting JSU's ProctorU website and clicking on "Schedule or Take an Exam". Create an account by clicking on "New Users: Request Login ID" (be sure to provide a valid email address, and a phone number where you can be reached when taking an exam).
At the time of your exam, return to JSU's ProctorU website and click on "Schedule or Take an Exam". Click on the blinking button that says "You have an exam. Click here to begin."
Offering ProctorU as an accepted proctor allows students to take their online test at their location of choice without sacrificing exam security. Please download and complete the Using ProctorU Form. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
