LSUS is committed to academic integrity of fully online and hybrid based courses. Starting in the spring semester of 2017, the university has designated ProctorU as the provider for live proctoring and Proctorio as the provider of for record and review proctoring.
Who pays for online proctoring?
LSUS pays for standard fees associated with live and recorded proctored exams for students. However, with ProctorU exams, students must schedule proctoring sessions at least 72 hours in advance to avoid a $5 Take It Soon scheduling fee, or a $8.75 Take It Now scheduling fee, which LSUS does not cover. Take It Soon allows a test to be scheduled less than 72 hours but more than one hour before the desired start time; Take It Now allows a test to be taken on-demand with no appointment needed. These options are for the convenience of the examinee and are not required, and these premium services are not covered by LSUS.
Is online proctoring required for all online exams?
No. Online proctoring is optional for faculty members to include within their courses and is not required. You may or may not have an online proctored exam.
If my online exam requires proctoring, what will I need?
You will need a webcam with microphone (internal or USB), a student ID or government issued ID, the Chrome browser, the Proctorio extension (if using record and review option), and a quiet, well-lit, private location with a reliable internet connection. You cannot use Internet Explorer to take a quiz in Moodle. ProctorU allows for Chrome and Firefox browsers while Proctorio only allows for Chrome browser.
