Compare Clemson Proctoring Solutions
Clemson University has 2 solutions for proctoring exams. Use the information below to choose the right one for you.
The Respondus LockDown Browser is a secure browser that allows teachers to administer tests and quizzes on Canvas while also preventing students from printing, copying, going to another URL, or accessing other applications. Canvas tests that require LockDown Browser cannot be taken with a standard web browser.
Respondus Monitor takes the familiar LockDown Browser and adds a student authentication system and artificial intelligence monitoring system to identify cheating instances. This should only be used on exams that students are completing outside of the classroom. Students will need a computer webcam, photo ID, and Respondus LockDown Browser to complete Canvas assessments that require Monitor. When the assessment is complete, faculty can access a report and the session recording.
None of These Work For Me, What Else Can I Do?
Some faculty have used video conferencing tools like Zoom and WebEx (sometimes in conjunction with the Respondus). If you are interested in this path and would like suggestions on how to set it up, go to our Events page and use Clemson Online Booking to schedule a training session.
Clemson also has the University Testing and Education Center (UTEC) (Link opens in new tab.), but it is largely reserved for proctoring students with appropriate letters of accommodation from Student Accessibility Services.
