eISU Proctoring Services for Faculty
FACULTY: ISU provides proctoring services for students taking online exams. Proctoring requires communication between both instructor and student to determine an appropriate location, time and proctor. Please make arrangements with your students at least one week prior to the examination to avoid scheduling conflicts.
Online Proctoring Solutions
Online proctoring allows a student to take an exam at home or work. In most cases, students will be required to have a web camera and a microphone to connect live with a proctor. Students will need to share their computer screen and show a current photo ID. The online proctor will observe the student and their computer screen during the exam and report any discrepancies. Currently, a Live Proctoring Service is available for those teaching eISU courses.
eISU faculty can request to have proctoring tools and resources added to their Moodle ISU course by filling out the Request Online Proctoring for an eISU Course form.

A few authentication and proctoring modes you need to keep in mind when scheduling an online exam:
- Level AA: Auto-Authentication - Test-takers snap pictures of their ID and face, answer challenge questions and enter a biometric keystroke signature to verify identity.
- Level LA: Live Authentication - Test-takers agree to exam rules, room scan, answer challenge questions, verifications, facial comparisons, keystroke analysis. This level is the most reliable authentication.
- Level 1: Auto-Proctoring - After auto-authentication is complete, Examity® captures audio, motion, and systemic changes to identify inappropriate behaviors.
- Level 2: Record and Review proctoring - After live-authentication, each test is recorded from start to finish and is later viewed by a human, in its entirety, to ensure that no rules have been violated.
- Level 3: Live Proctoring - After live-authentication, Examity® monitors the test-taker’s surroundings and entire desktop throughout the exam.
