What is Proctortrack?
Proctortrack is the automatic remote proctoring solution your institution has selected for use during online tests/assessments. More information about Proctortrack’s privacy policies and technologies used can be found on our website.
How does it work?
The following guide will assist you, the test-taker/student, in going through the process of taking a proctored test/assessment with Proctortrack. Remember if you ever had any additional questions, you can call 1 (844) 753-2020 or go to www.proctortrack.com for additional information and live chat.
Attempting the Onboarding creates the baseline profile of the students in the Proctortrack System. Often students are unsure whether their specific hardware setup will allow them to use Proctortrack. The Onboarding process gives students the opportunity to make sure everything is working correctly during low-pressure circumstances by attempting the sample test. It also gives students time to make any changes to their system well before the first exam. Keep in mind that Chrome and Firefox are the recommended browsers. While Proctortrack will work in other browsers, the user experience is far superior in Chrome. Having an approved Onboarding profile is required in order to be eligible to attempt the actual tests. The Onboarding process will include attempting a non-graded sample test.
Students can fail the Onboarding for the following reasons: ● Missing or insufficient facial scan. ● Missing or insufficient ID scan. ● The ID scan shows an invalid ID. ● Insufficient environment lighting.
If a student fails the Onboarding exam, they will receive a notification listing the specific reasons for failure and be asked to retake the Onboarding test.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Verificient support: ● Proctortrack support: firstname.lastname@example.org, 1-844-753-2020
