Clermont Online Proctoring

What is Online Proctoring?

Online proctoring refers to a digital form of proctored assessment that allows students to complete exams from any location. In a proctored online exam, students are monitored online during the test duration typically with the help of a photo ID, webcam, microphone and access to the computer screen of students.

Using ProctorU

Please visit and review the test-taker resource center. You should expect the startup process with the proctor to take about 10-15 minutes. However, this time will not affect your exam time. Please feel free to direct any questions to the test taker support team via the live chat within your account. 

In order to use ProctorU, you will need a high-speed internet connection, a webcam (internal or external), a Windows or iOS operating system, and a government issued photo ID. ProctorU recommends you check your computer equipment prior to your proctoring session to ensure you meet the technical requirements. You can do so via the “test your equipment” icon within your ProctorU account.
