In order to follow health and safety guidelines, the Student Success Center will offer regular proctoring services remotely using Respondus Monitor. There is no additional cost to students with this change to remote proctoring. In-person proctoring will only be available to students receiving accommodations, as space is limited in the ADA testing area. Additionally, proctoring services will not be available for community members or non-MUW students. Faculty are encouraged to use alternate forms of assessment that would preclude the use of proctoring services, as students may not have access to the necessary technology on a regular basis.
Respondus Monitor enhances LockDown Browser by using a student’s webcam to record the assessment session. This enables online exams to be taken in non-proctored environments and deters students from accessing other resources during an exam (such as a phone, a second computer, etc.). It also ensures the right student is taking the exam, and that the student isn’t getting help from others. Proctoring alternatives to the use of Respondus Monitor should be explored in consultation with the Kossen Center for Teaching and Learning.
