Illinois State University does not currently have a subscription to a proctoring service for online tests. Though much is dependent on the design of the exam, we can offer the following suggestions:
Zoom as a proctoring tool
Use Zoom to facilitate a live proctoring of an exam, similar to the way you would proctor during an on-campus exam. Zoom includes a Gallery view, which could be used to simultaneously watch all students on camera as they complete the exam.
Note: Not all students may be using a computer with a webcam. In addition, using a webcam may create bandwidth issues which could affect their ability to successfully complete an online exam. Instructors should consider alternatives if this is the case.
Use ReggieNet to create question banks and/or randomize both the order of questions and associated correct responses. Set a time limit, as appropriate. Explore more options on the ReggieNet Online Testing page.
Alternative forms of assessment
Revise the exam to a different, but equivalent, form of assessment. For example, instead of 50 multiple choice questions, pose a few essay questions that require students to think critically and/or synthesize the main concepts.
Ask fewer questions and require students to show their work or provide rationales for their answers.
CTLT can work with you online or by phone to learn more about your specific situation and help you think through those issues. Email CTLT@ilstu.edu or call (309) 438-2542 to discuss options.
