Online Proctoring

With the expansion of online courses the focus of ensuring the authentication of the students taking these courses and especially taking online assessment is of paramount concern. The university policy for online assessments and proctoring is that any assessment equivalent to 15% or more of a student’s final course grade should utilize online authentication and proctoring solution.

The first thing faculty need to consider if they will be teaching an online course that will need online proctoring is how the proctoring is funded. Online proctoring services are not a free service. Check with your program or department before requesting proctoring services to confirm how your course will fund online proctoring.

Considerations in determining funding:

  • Is your course a UF Online course?
  • Is your course part of a Self-Supporting program?
  • Is your course set up to charge a Distance Learning fee to cover proctoring?

Your program or department should know the answers to these questions. Keep in mind that ProctorU will not activate your exam to allow students to schedule until they know how the proctoring costs will be funded.



The ProctorU webinar from Nov. 30 at 11am is now available at this link. The webinar reviews impending changes in how faculty set up their online course ProctorU exams as well as how exam incident reports will be managed.
