What is a Virtual Proctor?

posted on Aug 18, 2022

A Virtual Proctor is someone who monitors a student writing an online exam through the use of a camera and microphone on the students’ computer.  A person will watch the student writing the exam and, if they suspect any cheating, a video of the incident will be escalated for review to see if a cheating incident occurred.  The proctor will also ask to see your workstation and confirm your ID before you begin writing to ensure the correct student is attempting the exam.  For FAQs on our Virtual Proctor company Examity, please visit their website:
