What is a proctored exam, and why are we proctored?

Proctored exams are exams with time limits that you complete while online proctoring software monitors you and your computer’s desktop using screen recording, video, and audio for the duration of the exam. The proctoring software checks that you (as the person taking the exam) are the same person who is taking the course for credit and detects any attempts to cheat on the exam. Suspicious behavior will be flagged and reviewed within 1-2 days of exam submission. Proctoring is only used in certain courses and may not be required for your course. Please review your course syllabi for proctoring requirements.
