There are numerous options for enhancing overall test security in online courses. In addition to assessment design considerations and the use of various testing options in Blackboard, instructors might wish to use one of the three options below:
- Traditional proctoring - A student takes a paper or online exam at a specific time and place under the oversight of an in-person proctor.
- Live online proctoring - Available at JSU through ProctorU, a student takes an online exam at a specific time under the oversight of a remote proctor.
- Exam monitoring - Available at JSU through Respondus Monitor, a student takes an online exam anywhere, anytime and the attempt is recorded for later review by the instructor.
Faculty should contact our office at email@example.com to discuss these options in more detail or to learn more about other methods for protecting the integrity of online exams.
