The number of online proctoring providers is growing rapidly and selecting the right provider(s) is essential for all high-quality online education programs. This session shares the experiences of Western Governor’s University, which is the largest consumer of online proctoring services in the world with more than 30,000 proctored assessments every month, and Texas State University who recently conducted a pilot with fourteen courses and ~500 students across a variety of disciplines using two different providers. Learn how faculty and student feedback helped inform TXST’s decision. Attendees will also learn the differences between live, automated, recorded, and record-and-review proctoring. These are just a few of the lessons learned and takeaways the panelist will share.
