Online Proctoring

< 10

Online proctoring is a tool that can be used for the remote online monitoring of an examination. This is done by recording image and sound at the (prospective) student's home. Once the (prospective) student has passed an identity and technical check and the recordings have started, he/she is  in a secure environment in which the test can be made. Recordings are assessed by a third party based on test criteria from the study programme.*

*The study programme also assesses any potentially suspicious situations.

Online proctoring can be used to select and match candidates who want to be admitted to a study programme, but are abroad. At UU experience has already been gained with this. For example, online proctoring is used to give a more diverse group of candidates a chance to participate in selections.

At Educate-it, we are asked several times whether online proctoring can be used in period 4. At this moment, the executive board is making a decision about the possible use of online proctoring in period 4.Because of the aforementioned reason, we are currently not processing any applications for online proctoring.

For information or questions about online proctoring, please contact us at the following e-mail address: educate-itbalie@uu.nl.

When a final decision has been taken by the executive board, this will be communicated clearly and all over UU.

Teachers can contact the Educate-it desk and indicate that they are interested in using online proctoring. Educate-it will then contact them.

A manual is available and can be requested at the Educate-it desk.

What forms of online proctoring does UU have experience with?

UU has experience with online proctoring through Record and Review. Other forms are Live Proctoring and Classroom.

Can online proctoring also be used for education with ECTS as reward?

Educate-it is also interested in coming into contact with courses that want to use online proctoring for education that offer ECTS. The tool is not yet being used for this purpose. This is being explored. Target groups could be, for example, disabled or chronically ill students or students doing an internship abroad.
