What is Proctortrack?

Proctortrack is remote proctoring software that uses webcams to track student activity during test-taking and flag any suspicious activity for instructor attention. According to Verificient, the makers of Proctortrack:

Through proprietary facial recognition algorithms, the platform automates proctoring by monitoring student behavior and action for test policy compliance. Proctortrack can detect when students leave their space, search online for additional resources, look at hard notes, consult with someone, or are replaced during a test.

Proctortrack is customizable to align with an institution’s testing policies. It offers powerful analytics and its dashboard allows administrators to seamlessly investigate any pre-flagged potential test policy breaches.
