Live online proctoring provides academic integrity, convenience and flexibility for schools and students.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — ProctorU, the world’s largest online proctoring and identity management solution, announced today a partnership with the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society, the leading provider of standardized assessment in anatomy and physiology, to add online proctoring to HAPS examinations.
The HAPS A&P Examination was established in June 1993 as a standardized assessment instrument for two semester undergraduate courses in Anatomy and Physiology. It has been continually maintained since that time and has grown into a secure and validated set of exams, fully trusted by the A&P Community. HAPS examinations provide a means for schools to compare their students’ collective performance with the normalized data accumulated from the results of all students that have taken the same exams. All HAPS examinations have historically been offered exclusively on campus with a live proctor monitoring each test-taker. Now, HAPS has now expanded to include an online option featuring ProctorU as their dedicated remote proctor.
“We are thrilled to add secure online proctoring to our A&P examinations,” said Peter English, Ph.D., HAPS Executive Director. “ProctorU’s Live+ online proctoring solution provides the security and oversight schools demand with a new level of convenience and flexibility for students.”
ProctorU Live+ is the first live proctoring solution to combine human proctoring and machine learning in one solution. For this multi-layered security approach, a live proctor authenticates student identity then launches and monitors the exam. Artificial intelligence supports the proctor by flagging any potential cheating behaviors. Finally, a highly-trained intervention specialist intervenes when suspicious behaviors occur.
“ProctorU Live+ is the new industry standard for academic integrity. We are proud to bring the latest innovation in online proctoring to HAPS examinations. Providing a consistent, fair and secure online exam environment gives students more options for how they take the exams while helping schools manage space issues during busy exam times,” said Scott McFarland, ProctorU CEO.
ProctorU provides a full suite of online proctoring and identity management solutions for education, professional development, and certification organizations. With patented, 24/7 on-demand live proctoring and a fully-automated platform, both backed by artificial intelligence, ProctorU offers a powerful, convenient and cost-effective alternative to traditional test centers. ProctorU increases access to online learning while ensuring exam integrity and accountability for any test-taker with internet access using only a computer and a webcam.
