Exam Proctoring

Support Solutions

Online proctoring options help ensure test integrity for students taking exams in remote locations via the Internet.


UMKC has contracted with Examity to provide live online test proctoring. The service costs $15 per hour for the first hour, and $7 per hour for each additional hour. So, a two-hour exam would cost $22.

Students are responsible for proctoring fees, and they pay with a credit card when they schedule the exam in the Examity web portal.

Instructors will need to add instructions and projected student costs to the syllabus and Blackboard course, and will schedule their exams in the Examity web portal.

Students set up a profile with Examity, schedule a time to take the exam, and complete the exam with a remote live proctor at the agreed-upon time. Students need both a webcam and microphone for this process.

Respondus Monitor

Respondus Monitor is a companion product for Respondus LockDown Browser that offers students the ability to take an online exam remotely in the location of their choosing. Monitor serves as an alternative to live proctoring, while still helping to protect the integrity of online assessments.

The cost of Respondus Monitor to students is $10 per semester, per course.

Respondus LockDown Browser must be installed on the student’s computer, along with a working webcam and optional microphone, in order to use Respondus Monitor. If use of Monitor is required with an exam, Monitor makes an audio/video recording of the exam environment as the student takes the test. Instructors can later choose to review details of the exam (specific frames the software flags as potentially suspicious), or watch the entire session.
