Proctorio is software your instructor might use when you take an exam remotely. Similar to proctoring in an in-person class, online proctoring is intended to identify suspicious behaviors that may be occurring during an exam. This tutorial will guide you through setting up Proctorio on your computer.
Please note: If your instructor has set a time limit for your exam, the time will not begin until after you have completed Proctorio’s pre-check process.
You can only take a Proctorio-enabled exam using Google Chrome. If you need to, download and install Google Chrome before continuing set up. If you are unable to install Chrome, contact your instructor about an accommodation.
Review Proctorio's Minimum System Requirements before attempting to start an exam.
Go to https://getproctorio.com/ and follow the instructions listed on the page to download the Proctorio browser extension.
Please Note: You may need to disable other extensions that interfere with Proctorio, such as Privacy Badger, for the duration of the exam.
Navigate to Quizzes in Canvas and select your exam. Read the information provided by your instructor and then select Take the Quiz.
If you see a Fix errors to continue button at the bottom of the page, Proctorio has detected issues such as alternate browsers or multiple monitors. Select the button and follow the instructions to resolve.
