How to Prepare for Your ProctorU Exam?

Step 1:

Students in courses using the ProctorU (a.k.a ProctorU Live+) will need to schedule an exam. To schedule an exam:

  1. Login to Moodle and navigate to the course you need to schedule a ProctorU exam for. 
  2. Locate the Access ProctorU Resources link in your course. This link is typically located at the top of the course or near the actual exam. Follow the on-screen instructions to schedule your exam.  

Step 2:

Next, you will need to download the Guardian Secure Proctoring Browser. This is the secure browser you will use to take your exam. If you want to learn more about the Guardian Browser, click here.
