ProctorU is a live online proctoring service for students taking exams online. Proctors use a three-step process to replicate the face-to-face proctoring experience over the internet.
Through this process, proctors can see the student, see what they are doing, and know who they are monitoring. This is done while adhering to the highest accreditation standards in the industry.

Application to All Courses
ProctorU maintains the integrity of higher institutions even as online education carves greater gaps between instructors’ and students’ accountability. ProctorU brings into the online classroom what is most typical in a face-to-face environment and works to improve the online learning experience with available technology that promotes student integrity. ProctorU is best described as:
- A Proctoring service for the online environment
- Working to maintain academic integrity while making the exam process convenient for the student
Keep accessibility in mind as you develop course content and build assignments and assessments. Many online tools are not fully accessible, so it’s important to think about how you will make the assignment accessible if requested. The Disability Resource Center and the UF Accessibility page will guide you in making appropriate accommodations. You can also find out more about accessibility at our toolbox page on Accessibility in the Online Classroom.
