To prepare learners for a proctored exam, follow these guidelines.
The learner experience of a proctored exam depends on the proctoring service that your course or organization uses. Typically, learners can expect to download and install proctoring software, verify their identities, and use their webcams to scan the testing environment before they take the exam. For more information, see Proctored Exams in the Open edX Learner’s Guide.
You can create an ungraded practice proctored exam for your course so that learners can become familiar with the process of installing proctoring software and performing the required checks ahead of time. Depending on the proctoring service, learners might complete the following steps for a practice proctored exam.
Learners who complete practice exams must usually complete the same software installation and environment scan steps again when they take an actual proctored exam.
