Students (ProctorU refers to students as test-takers) are not required to schedule an appointment to take your exam or quiz. Instead, they can log into Canvas and take the exam any time during the exam window (EXAM WINDOWS MUST BE GENEROUS ENOUGH TO SUPPORT VARIOUS STUDENT SCHEDULES).
Students should block off an adequate window of time for ProctorU set-up on the day of their exam. It takes approximately 10-15 minutes for students to access the exam in Canvas, connect with the ProctorU automated service, walk-through the steps for setting up their system and verify their identity. This set-up time does not count toward their test-taking time. The test clock starts after the verification process is completed and the student enters the Canvas quiz.
ProctorU review+ does not require an environmental scan. If you would like students to conduct a scan of their testing space, add the instructions to your syllabus, exam, and in the exam's ProctorU terms of service. To access ProctorU's terms of service, click on ProctorU from the left-hand navigation in your Canvas course and select the pencil edit icon of the exam you wish to add these instructions. Scroll down to the Terms of Service section and check the box requiring students to acknowledge the terms of service and then include your specific instructions. Students will be notified of the terms of service during the test set-up process. The Terms of Service dialog box will appear on the screen before students begin the exam. The environmental scan they do will be recorded as a part of the exam for your review.
