Extended Abstract

The changing landscape of online learning has led a growing number of higher education institutions, certification providers, and other organizations to rethink their relationship with remote assessments. During a tumultuous year, online proctoring demonstrated tremendous potential to meet students where they are, while providing a streamlined, equal experience for all users. At the same time, concerns about privacy and security remain at the forefront of the national discourse. Against that backdrop, the IMS Global Learning Consortium -- the pioneering standards-setting body in education technology -- developed and recently released its LTI® Proctoring Services standard, a new specification designed to recognize cutting-edge innovation in test security and integrity. Designed to align with the pioneering IMS Learning Tools Interoperability® standard, the LTI Proctoring Services Certification recognizes providers that work with best-in-class learning management systems to deliver a streamlined and secure user experience for students, instructors, and proctors.

Simply put, the LTI Proctoring Services Certification enables the seamless and secure integration of LMSs with proctoring technologies. But how does it work in practice? How can it be implemented at your institution? This session will provide an overview from IMS Global’s approach from a higher education perspective, including a detailed overview of the Proctoring Services Certification.
