Providing Accommodations When Using Proctortrack
A: Proctortrack is a tool for monitoring online exams which utilizes an automated, proctor less approach to ensure exam taking integrity.
Proctortrack is remote proctoring software that uses webcams to track student activity during test-taking and flag any suspicious activity for instructor attention.
A: Proctortrack is a layer that runs on top of the Learning Management System (e.g.,Canvas or Sakai ) quizz/exams. The LMS provides access and time limits. You can add Proctortrack to your Canvas or Sakai course site by adding it as a Tool to your site.
A: If an instructor enables an accommodation such as extended time within the LMS (Canvas or Sakai) for a quiz/exam and also enables Proctortrack for monitoring, then the student has the accommodation within the LMS for that particular quiz/exam.
For most LMS systems, the instructor must:
- Create the quiz/exam with the appropriate extra time for the student. Visit our guide for Extended Time for Exams for Rutgers LMS.
- Then select the “Proctortrack” link from the course navigation within the LMS and locate this student's particular quiz from the list. All of the quizzes created within the LMS are automatically imported on the Proctortrack dashboard.
- When Proctortrack is enabled for a particular quiz/exam then the quiz/exam will run with the extended time within the LMS for this student.
Q: What if the accommodation the student is requesting is not listed on the Letter of Accommodation submitted by the student?
A: Please contact the Coordinator listed on the Letter of Accommodation or contact the appropriate Rutgers Office of Disability Services (ODS) to speak to a student's specific Coordinator to discuss the accommodation request further. Remember, some accommodations listed on the Letter of Accommodation may need to be adjusted for the online testing environment, but they still need to be approved by the Office of Disability Services.
Remember, please ensure that the student has the accommodation listed on their Letter of Accommodation approved by the Office of Disability Services (ODS) or contact ODS first before implementing new accommodations.
Most accommodation needs can be met by using the tab "Students Settings" on the instructor's dashboard so that they can configure the proctored exam based on the requirement for a specific student.
The following adjustments to Proctortrack are possible under the "Student Settings" tab.
