ProctorU is a virtual proctoring service used by many instructors at Boise State University. Online courses use ProctorU to administer exams off-campus. Before using ProctorU to take exams, students should ask their instructor if they’re permitting virtual proctoring in the course. Whether you’re an instructor or student, you should create your account to get started.
List Exams on ProctorU: If virtual proctoring is permitted in the course, instructors should list exams on ProctorU as early in the term as possible. Each test submission should include complete and accurate instructions for the proctor. New Faculty must create a ProctorU Instructor Account to get started.
Create an Off-Campus Test Copy in Blackboard: Students will use the Off-campus copy of the exam when testing with ProctorU. This copy of the test must be configured according to the required off-campus exam settings.
Apply Accommodations: The instructor must configure the proper exceptions in the test settings to accommodate students who qualify for extended time on exams. The instructor should also ensure that relevant accommodation information is listed on ProctorU to inform the test proctor.
Provide Sign up Information: The instructor must inform students that the exam is available for scheduling on ProctorU and provide the registration instructions outlined in the links at the bottom of this page.
Schedule On-Time: Students should schedule their exams early to avoid additional fees for last-minute appointments.
Verify Technical Requirements: Students should verify that they meet the technical requirements for using ProctorU before the test date. Required technical specifications are outlined on the ProctorU website, along with a tool that automatically verifies compatibility.
ProctorU pricing is based on the length of the exam (billing occurs after the session). Exam fees generally range from $15 to $30.Students who wait until the last minute to reserve their exam time will be assessed an additional late fee, $5 per exam hour (72 hours to 24 hours ahead of appointment) or $8.75 per exam hour (less than 24 hours ahead of appointment). A $12.00 fee applies if the test is scheduled less than 4 hours in advance.
*Please be aware that you are responsible for additional fees assessed due to late scheduling.
