Proctor Settings Explanations

  • Record Webcam - Records HD video of the exam taker's face and testing environment using their built-in webcam or external webcam.
  • Record Screen - Records HD video of the exam taker's laptop or desktop screen.
  • Record Web Traffic - Logs and monitors the browser activity in Google Chrome during the exam.
  • Student Photo - Requires the exam taker to take a still picture prior to taking their exam.
  • Student ID - Requires the exam taker to take a picture of their government-issued photo ID or CatCard with their webcam. Honorlock will ensure the name on the ID matches the name in D2L.
  • Room Scan - Requires the exam taker to show a 360-degree view of their testing environment and an onscreen message will inform them of this. If you are requesting them to show certain items - blank scratch paper, cellphone being placed out of reach, etc. use the Additional Instructions section to detail what they should do during the Room Scan.
  • Disable Copy Paste - Prevents copying exam content and pasting it outside of the exam.
  • Disable Printing - Prevents access to the browser print function to print or export exam content.
  • Browser Guard - Honorlock's secure browser solution prevents access to additional applications outside of Google Chrome. Any attempt to access external applications will generate an automated flag which will be reviewed when reviewing the results. Please note due to some device limitations, Browser Guard will work to varying degrees.
  • Allowed Site URLs - Grants access to another Chrome tab to any sites you add. It includes links to e-textbook, DESMOS for an online graphing calculator, or a link to any other web pages needed to complete the exam. When adding URLs, make sure you click Add Site for each page you're granting access to. Include the link to the sites or resources within the question itself, or in the exam instructions so that exam taker can click on it.
  • Simulated Exam Option - This should only be used for low-stakes exams, as it will simulate the proctoring experience, but there will be no recording or flagging to review after the session is complete.
