Help and Resources: Online Proctoring

Due to OHIO courses moving to remote and online delivery, Ohio University students will not be required to pay proctoring fees for automated proctoring for all Summer 2019-2020 sessions.


Online Proctoring allows students to take a proctored exam on their own device from a location of their choosing if their instructor has enabled the feature for their course. 

Getting Started

Instructors: All Blackboard courses are already configured to use Proctortrack. For more information about configuring a Blackboard exam for Proctortrack see the Instructors section below.

Tips for Instructors

Students: This service is only available if your instructor has enabled it for your course.

Setting up an online proctored exam

Make sure your exam is Available and requires an exam Password!
  • Exams must be available within Blackboard to be accessed within Proctortrack. Exams cannot be in hidden folders.
  • To ensure all students complete their Blackboard exam used online proctoring, you must set up a password on the Blackboard exam and share that password only with Proctortrack. You should not provide your students with the password, or they will be able to take the exam through Blackboard without using Proctortrack.

Onboarding your students

Students must successfully complete Proctortrack's onboarding 24-48 hours before taking their first exam. Ensure that all students complete onboarding well before the deadline for your first online proctored exam. For full details on onboarding your students see this Tips for Instructors page.
