ProctorU: Overview

GROK Overview Banner

This page contains overview information about using ProctorU online proctoring services for LSU courses. This service allows students to complete course exams at any location while still ensuring the academic integrity of the exam for the institution. Using a webcam and audio capability, students can take exams in a private, conducive environment and where they have reliable internet access. ProctorU is the only university-approved remote proctoring service at this time. 

If a course requires the use of ProctorU, there is a proctoring fee for the students' use of the service. The amount of this fee will depend on the level of service selected by the instructor. Get further help for instructional faculty in the GROK article 20564, ProctorU: Information for Instructors or for students in GROK article 20565, ProctorU: Information for Students. For information on the fully automated service Record+, see the article Moodle: ProctorU Record+.
