Proctorio is an online proctoring solution that is fully integrated into CarmenCanvas. The tool allows the instructor to:
Record exam audio, webcam recording, and screen recording for review afterward
Leverage algorithms to identify potential academic misconduct and efficiently review the relevant recording segments
Note, settings may be adjusted for identifying potential academic misconduct to allow for varying scenarios, such as an open book exam
Check exam recordings to confirm the identification shown at the exam start matches the intended student
Instructors should note that there is no Proctorio outcome that unequivocally indicates academic misconduct.
Proctorio is available in every course at Ohio State, however, it is at the discretion of the instructor if the tool will be utilized.
Beyond Proctorio, Ohio State offers a variety of suggested proctoring options.
Proctorio offers students the flexibility to take their exams at the time and in the location of their choosing.
Proctorio offers students the flexibility to take their exams at the time and in the location of their choosing. To consent to use Proctorio students must be over 18 years of age. Students under 18 can use Proctorio if their parent and or legal guardian submitted the waiver included in their Ohio State Academy Orientation. Federal regulations prohibit the recording of minors without the permission of their parents. Therefore, if a student is under the age of 18, the University requires that you have the consent of their parent or guardian to use such instructional tools. If you intend to record live classes or use a proctoring software, please provide students with the consent form. Students will return the signed waiver to you. It is the expectation of the Office of the University Registrar that you will keep and maintain these records in accordance with the university's current records retention policy.
Additionally, the tool has limitations in its accessibility for students reliant upon screen readers and keyboard navigation.
ODEE and the Digital Accessibility Center are currently working with Proctorio to make the tool fully accessible. Due to the current limitations, students reliant upon screen readers and keyboard navigation have the choice to use a different proctoring option or take the online exam without Proctorio enabled.
Due to the nature of Proctorio, and the recording of audio and video, students must sign a waiver as part of the exam process. Reviewing and accepting the waiver is the last of the Proctorio setup steps before an exam begins. The final setup step, titled Exam Agreement, includes the following language:
