Remote Proctor Now (RPN)

RPN is a remote proctoring solution used in some online and hybrid classes. Students use a customized browser to take tests in Canvas or a similar platform while they are recorded via webcam and their desktop is also recorded. Recordings are reviewed after the fact by proctors to see if cheating has occurred. All exam rules are written by instructors who also have final determination of whether cheating has occurred. Students need a photo ID, webcam, and a quiet, well-lit room to take the test.
