With Tegrity test proctoring, students can take exams and quizzes right from their computers as long as an internet connection is available. Our system allows the student to be recorded while taking the exam (in the same manner as an instructor recording a lecture). Additionally, we have implemented a number of different options making this a secure test-taking feature, such as a visual identification method and the disabling of the pause controls. Below you will find instructions on how to use our test proctoring feature, as well as some suggested methods for ensuring that exams are being taken in a secure manner.
Step 1: Getting started with Tegrity test proctoring
First, you must enable the testing feature. To do this:
1. Access your My Tegrity homepage and click on the course for which you want to enable Tegrity test proctoring.
2. Click on Course Settings (B) from the Course Tasks (A) drop-down.
3. Locate the Tests section. Click the check box next to Enable student testing (Remote Proctoring mode) (A). Tegrity also provides an option (B) that allows you to include a test-taking policy that your students will have to read and accept before beginning their test. A text entry field will appear once this option is enabled (shown below). Select OK (C). Tegrity test proctoring has now been enacted.
4. A Start a Test button will appear in your course.
Note: The Start a Test button only appears when you click on the course in which test proctoring has been enabled. When viewing your My Tegrity homepage, the button will not be visible.
Step 2: Viewing students’ tests
Recording proctored tests requires no extra effort on the part of the instructor. Videos are uploaded automatically when the student has completed their recording. Once uploaded, the proctored test recordings will be available under the Tests tab.
For your convenience, each test is labeled with the student’s name. When clicking on a test, the first thumbnail of each recording is the student photo that was taken, making it simple for the instructor to quickly navigate through each recording and verify student identities.
Note: The Tests tab will only be available once at least one student test recording has been uploaded. Students will not see the Tests tab.
