An online identity profile creation and verification service that will validate a person’s identity not just once, but throughout an entire online course.
A course admin enables Auth inside LMS settings and can then use it on any assignment throughout the course.
Users are prompted to set up Auth profile by connecting to a live proctor and establishing their own personalized multi-factor ID test. This process takes less than five minutes.
Users are re-authenticated prior to entering any assignments or learning modules where Auth is enabled.
A user’s profile is associated at the institution/organization level, so it follows the user across any course taken while enrolled.
Auth is still in development, but is available for early adopter beta use. As we move through beta testing, more features and LMS integrations will be added. The service is currently only available in the Canvas LMS, but will be available soon in Blackboard, Moodle and D2L.
When creating a Uauth profile, a user connects to a live proctor to establish their identity. US citizens will be asked to take a photo of themselves through their webcam, take a photo of a government-issued photo ID, answer a series of randomly-selected challenge questions pulled from public records, and establish a keystroke biometric ID. Non-US citizens will be required to do all of the above except the public record challenge questions.
Because user profiles are associated at the institution or organization level, a user only has to set up one profile that will be good for any course taken at each institution or organization where they are enrolled. The only reason a user would have to set up a separate profile is if they enroll in a new institution or organization.
Uauth can be enabled on any quiz, test, assignment or learning module. Users only have to take a photo and go through a keystroke ID evaluation. Photos and keystroke IDs are compared to those established during a user’s initial profile creation to determine a pass/fail status.
Users must complete the authentication process prior to accessing any area where Uauth is enabled. Course administrators are made aware of the pass/fail status of each user’s authentication and can address each situation as needed.

If you’re considering online proctoring, ProctorU is the way to go. Through the years, other proctoring services have tried to get our business and I have been asked to evaluate other companies, but we choose to stay with ProctorU because of their outstanding customer service. Our students receive the help they need from a real person at ProctorU, and a lot of the other proctoring companies don’t do that.

By pairing [our] two highly innovative and fully research-backed learning solutions, we are now offering our college and university partners the very best in math placement assessment. Research shows a strong correlation between proctored exams and student success, but many of our customers simply do not have the bandwidth to provide in-person proctoring services.
President of Higher Education, McGraw-Hill Education
We are proud to offer an integration with ProctorU to serve more test-takers and make higher education and credentialing programs more accessible to individuals around the world.

I love the convenience ProctorU gives me. I have to babysit my sister, and it’s easier to just have her go to another room while I test instead of having to find someone to watch her if I had to leave and go to a testing center. ProctorU is also really helpful when you have a minor scheduling issue. One time I accidentally scheduled for 11:40 pm, but needed it to be 11:40 am because my exam was due before 5pm. They fixed it right away in less than 30 minutes through live chat. Couldn’t have asked for better service!

ProctorU helps me handle life as a mom, Army wife, full time employee, and student by offering exam times when it's most convenient for me. I love using ProctorU at home rather than taking a proctored exam at the local university's testing center. I also love that ProctorU's proctors are polite, professional, and very helpful.
