Getting Started

Hello there and welcome to Proctorio!

Proctorio is an automated remote proctoring service that uses computers to monitor student behavior. Sounds complicated? It's not! Proctorio makes it super easy to set up and review exams.

Proctorio is deeply integrated with Canvas and lets you use the same interfaces you know and love. There's no syncing or exporting or anything like that. It's all right here.

Proctorio encourages learning and ensures that all your students are playing by the rules.

Who's rules, you might ask? Yours! Proctorio puts the power back in the hands of the professor, allowing you to create the perfect exam environment.

If you change your mind, that's cool too. Proctorio lets you change settings at any time to highlight just the things that you're interested in within the gradebook.

If you ever have any questions, Proctorio is here to help 24/7. We have hundreds of help articles and are always happy to give a demo. Feel free to reach out!

Ready to get started? Just scroll down and we'll walk you through getting everything set up.


Glad to have you on board!!
