ProctorU provides distance proctoring services for corporate training, certification organizations, and higher education institutions that offer examinations online, using webcams and screen-sharing technology. The service allows exam candidates to take their skill assessments, certification exams or any other tests from nearly anywhere by creating a secured environment. ProctorU makes an organization's employees more efficient by allowing them to test in nearly any convenient location, 7-days-a-week and 20-hours-per-day. With ProctorU there is no need to travel, find a babysitter, hassle with traffic and parking, or take time off from work.
The service uses a patent-pending three-step process that confirms that the candidate who registered for the exam is the same person who is taking the exam, and is following the organization's testing requirements. Candidate identities are authenticated using the same process trusted by the healthcare and banking industries. Live, human proctors monitor the entire process in order to ensure that a high level of integrity is maintained throughout the session. ProctorU uses a proactive and preventative method of proctoring that protects the integrity of the test being administered. Proctors also provide free technical support to candidates logging in for an exam to ensure a smooth testing experience.
