Comparison of JCCC Digital Proctoring Tools

Respondus Lockdown Browser and Monitor (Works on Windows, Mac, iPad and Chromebooks)

This product provides a secure assessment tool (lockdown browser) that prevents students from accessing other resources on their computers and works specifically within the Canvas Quizzing tool.  It is available for use on Windows, Macintosh and Chromebooks.

Respondus Monitor (Works on Windows, Mac, iPad and Chromebooks)

The Monitor tool is an add-on to the Respondus Lockdown Browser that adds the ability to use a student’s webcam to record and analyze student exam sessions. As a default it works with Canvas Quizzes but can be added to McGraw Hill ALEKS and Pearson MyLab publisher interfaces.

Instructors are provided with a recording inside of Canvas that flags possible testing environment issues along with question-by-question comparisons with other students who took the same exam. It is available for use on Windows, Macintosh and Chromebooks.

YuJa Proctoring Options (only on Windows and Mac computers)

YuJa Proctoring works inside Canvas to enable students to record both their webcam (themselves) and their screen. Students begin the process by taking a picture of their Photo ID through Software Capture, and then they record themselves taking the exam.

The instructor is then provided with a specific folder inside YuJa that contains the recordings for their review.  This product only works on Windows and Macintosh computers at this time.

Zoom Web conferencing (Windows, Mac, Chromebook, iPad, Phones)

One option for proctoring your exams is Zoom. You can use Zoom without a restriction to the number of exams you can proctor. Zoom proctoring requires exams to be given synchronously during your normally scheduled course time. … Students will need a webcam during their exams.  Zoom is available for use on Windows, Macintosh and Chromebooks.
