13.2. Enable Proctored Exams

To create a proctored exam, you modify the course advanced settings in Studio to enable proctored exams, and then you modify the settings of a subsection to specify that the subsection is a proctored exam.


In Fall 2019, the default proctoring provider is RPNow by PSI. To use Proctortrack by Verificient, please contact your edX partner manager.

To enable proctored exams in your course, follow these steps.

  1. In Studio, select Settings, then select Advanced Settings.
  2. Locate the Enable Proctored Exams policy key. The default value is false.
  3. Change the value of the setting to true.
  4. Select Save Changes. You can now create proctored exams in your course.

After you enable this setting for your course, you can create a proctored exam or a practice proctored exam.
