What is a proctored exam?

A proctored exam is an online exam that is closely monitored to ensure the quality of the exam.

First, you log in to the exam and you’re guided through a technical check to make sure your visual and audio systems are working properly. During the next step you verify your identity, showing your ID to the webcam. With your webcam you scan the room to make sure you are alone in the room and there are no materials in the room that are not allowed (such as text books). Your screen is recorded during the exam, to make sure only allowed resources are consulted. The recordings of the exam are reviewed by certified proctors and when necessary also by the teachers of the course.
