What is ​Proctoring?

This term has a long history within teaching and learning circles, but its meaning shifts a little when applied to digital environments. The most basic definition is the act of monitoring students during an exam to ensure there is no cheating, collaboration, or other rule-breaking behavior that violates the terms of the examination.

Of course, in an online setting, especially an asynchronous learning environment, an actual proctor does not sit and monitor the system in real-time. It's not feasible, and they could not see the things in-person proctors monitor for anyway. In online learning, proctoring is the act of assessing and evaluating progress through a module or system, including the authentication of genuine users and the administration of controlled assessments like timed tests. Online systems typically rely on automatic systems to administrate proctoring duties, using rule sets put in place by the module or assessment designers.
