ProctorU is available at no charge to all students enrolled in TN eCampus courses.
ProctorU gives students flexibility in where they take their exam. This online service connects you to a live proctor via a webcam. The proctor will walk you through the exam process and provide assistance if you run into any service problems.
Getting Started with ProctorU is easy! Simply follow these steps.
Step 1: Per ProctorU, most cameras purchased at a local electronics retailer will work for test proctoring. Webcams must have a microphone for you to communicate with your proctor. Contact your instructor if you need assistance acquiring a webcam or headphones.
Step 2: Check the Pre-Exam Checklist (new window) to make sure your computer and webcam meet the requirements.
Step 3: Watch the demo video (external link)
Step 4: Create an account (new window) and schedule your exam. Be sure to provide a valid email address and phone number where you can be reached when you are taking the exam.
Step 5: At the time of your exam, return to ProctorU (new window) and log in. Remember the following:
- Test in a well-lit, quiet and private room
- Have your photo ID ready
- Bring a reflective surface such as a mirror. This helps you show the edges of your monitor to your proctor.
