Extended Abstract

Online proctoring solutions have been adopted by instructional designers and faculty over the last few years to solve the assessment flexibility and integrity problem. Although testing solutions have improved steadily, it’s still a challenge to achieve the promise of a truly convenient method – faculty and students getting what they want, when they want it, without adding additional costs, administration – or sacrificing integrity. It shouldn’t be that difficult to provide a convenient proctored exam experience. So what’s making it hard? This session will provide tips and techniques for creating an online proctoring infrastructure that gives faculty the flexibility and freedom of choice in how they design assessments and provides students the convenience they demand. It will also show how to build a self-sustaining test integrity culture where administrators, instructional designers and faculty work collaboratively to support online proctoring success.
