ProctorU provides distance proctoring services for colleges, universities and certification organizations that offer examinations online.

ProctorU uses a patent-pending three-step process that confirms that the student who registered for the exam is the student who is taking the exam and is following the institution’s testing requirements. The service is modeled after the in-classroom experience and proctors monitor the entire process in order to ensure that a high level of integrity is maintained throughout the exam process. ProctorU offers live, person-to-person, real-time monitoring to nearly 1,000 colleges, universities and certification organizations, including the University of Alabama, the University of Florida and Northwestern University.
