In this class, you will take your exams remotely and will be proctored by Honorlock. You DO NOT need to create an account or schedule an appointment in advance, and access is available 24/7. As a reminder, you must meet the system requirements which include operating system, built-in or external webcam and microphone, stable internet and use Google Chrome as the main browser. Lastly, a CatCard or government-issued ID is required. If you do not have an ID, you will be unable to test. Contact your instructor for additional information.
1. Start by clicking on the Honorlock tab on your D2L course homepage. This will vary between courses, but will most likely be found under UA Tools.
2. Before you access Honorlock, you will be asked to download the Honorlock Chrome Extension. If it's already installed, the system will automatically skip this step.
NOTE: It is highly recommended that you remove the Honorlock extension after each exam. Scroll down for the instructions.
