Online and Hybrid Course Proctoring
UNT Dallas online and hybrid course proctoring is available only to UNT Dallas faculty
and students. Each instructor has the right to determine how the exams for their course
will be monitored/proctored.
- Monitor - Student takes an exam in an environment of their own design. Exam is recorded using
a device that is provided by either the student or the institution using a preselected
software that has been downloaded onto the device. The exam session is recorded and
later reviewed by either faculty, assigned staff, the software company or its designee
for possible infractions. Depending on the software, technological assistance may
be unavailable to the student during the exam in real time.
- Proctoring - Student takes an exam in an environment designed for the purpose of reduced distraction
or high stakes testing, generally in compliance with state or national regulations
for accredited testing centers. Students are properly identified as the ones completing
the exam. Exam is recorded on surveillance monitored by university police, the office
of testing services and downloaded to university servers to document misconduct reported
by live proctors who walk the room every 15 minutes per testing guidelines. Technological
and customer assistance is available in real time for both student and faculty.
Available Options at UNT Dallas
Option 1 - Respondus Monitor
Faculty can opt to have online/hybrid course students test at home using a webcam,
microphone, and screen recorder software program entitled Respondus Monitor (RM).
Students utilizing this program should be advised that Respondus will record both
their home environment, all voice and sound within the environment, and the contents
of their computer screen for the professor to review. Prior to the start of the exam,
Respondus will also ask the student to use their camera to take photos of themselves
(selfies), their Identification, and scan their room to search for prohibited items
and persons. Student will be asked to sign an acknowledgement authorizing the program
to complete this scan, record the session, and provide the recording as documentation
against the student should any infraction or case be found worthy of investigation.
To avoid being flagged for misconduct, students should select a testing environment
that is quiet, well lit, and secluded. They should also avoid getting up and leaving
the room during their exam.
