How Uauth Works

Proctoring is a great way to validate the integrity of online assessments. But what about other assignments that may be required through an LMS during an online course? How can you be sure that the person completing every assignment is the person enrolled in the course? Uauth solves that need. It can be a stand-alone service or be combined with any ProctorU proctoring services for an even greater level of protection against a breach of integrity.

Here’s how it works:

Course Admin Enables Uauth When a course administrator enables Uauth within LMS settings, he/she then has the ability to enable it on any assignment throughout the course.

Users Prompted to Set Up Uauth Profile When Uauth is enabled in a course, everyone enrolled in that course must also enroll in Uauth. A user will be prompted to create a profile in which they connect to one of our live proctors, take a photo of themselves, take a picture of a government-issued photo ID, answer randomly selected challenge questions pulled from public records (non-US users are not required to take this step), and establish a keystroke biometric ID. This process takes less than five minutes.

Recurring Authentication Throughout Course When a user logs into their LMS and accesses an assignment with Uauth enabled, they are automatically prompted to take a photo and go through short a keystroke ID test before being allowed to access an assignment. This authentication process takes less than two minutes. If a user fails their Uauth test, the instructor is notified and can take whatever action they deem appropriate.

Profile Follows User to Any Course During Enrollment Once a profile is created, a user never has to connect to a proctor or adjust their profile again unless they change where they are enrolled for education or training. Profiles are associated at the institution/organization level, so an individual can use his or her profile for any course taken through the same institution/organization.

Uauth is still in development, but will be available for early adopter beta testing during the first quarter of 2019. 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.

BETA Features and Benefits of Uauth Identity Management

Multi-Factor Identity Authentication: When creating a Uauth profile, a user must connect to one of our live proctors 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.

One User Enrollment Through Entire Online Program: 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.

Recurring, Unintrusive Verification: Uauth service can be enabled on any quiz, test, or assignment and users only need 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.

Forced Authentication: 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.
