Remote Proctoring & Browser-Locking Capabilities
Remote proctoring and browser-locking capabilities, hosted by Proctorio within Connect, provide control of the assessment environment by enabling security options and verifying the identity of the student.
Seamlessly integrated within Connect, these services allow instructors to control students’ assessment experience by restricting browser activity, recording students’ activity, and verifying students are doing their own work.
Instant and detailed reporting gives instructors an at-a-glance view of potential academic integrity concerns, thereby avoiding personal bias and supporting evidence-based claims.

Tegrity in Connect is a tool that makes class time available 24/7 by automatically capturing every lecture. With a simple one-click start-and-stop process, you capture all computer screens and corresponding audio in a format that is easy to search, frame by frame. Students can replay any part of any class with easy-to-use, browser-based viewing on a PC, Mac, iPod, or other mobile device.
Educators know that the more students can see, hear, and experience class resources, the better they learn. In fact, studies prove it. Tegrity’s unique search feature helps students efficiently find what they need, when they need it, across an entire semester of class recordings. Help turn your students’ study time into learning moments immediately supported by your lecture. With Tegrity, you also increase intent listening and class participation by easing students’ concerns about note-taking. Using Tegrity in Connect will make it more likely you will see students’ faces, not the tops of their heads.
