ProctorU provides distance proctoring services for colleges, universities and certification organizations that offer examinations online. The service allows students to take their exams from nearly anywhere in a secure environment. ProctorU uses a patent-pending three-step process that confirms that the examinee who registered for the exam is the individual who is taking the exam and is following the institution’s testing requirements. The service is modeled after the in-classroom experience and proctors monitor the entire process in order to ensure that a high level of integrity is maintained. ProctorU offers live, person-to-person, real time monitoring to almost 450 colleges, universities and certification organizations, including the University of Alabama, the University of Florida, Northwestern University and the Bloomberg Institute. ProctorU operates dedicated proctoring centers in Folsom and Livermore, Calif., and Hoover, Ala. For more information, visit www.proctoru.com.
