How to Enable Proctoring to Monitor Quiz Takers
ProProfs Quiz Maker provides proctoring to supervise quizzes. You can enable proctoring to capture screenshots at regular intervals while a quiz taker is taking your quiz. The idea is to monitor the activities during the complete duration of a particular quiz.
Here’s an example of a quiz with proctoring enabled.
Instructors can view these screenshots in the Quiz Report.
Proctoring enables you to:
Capture screenshots of the quiz takers’ screens at regular intervals
Review quiz sessions and check for any suspicious activity in the captured log
Ensure fair practices and reliability in quiz-taking
In this article, you’ll learn:
Step 1: Go to quiz settings on your ProProfs Quiz Maker dashboard.
Step 2: Under the General tab, set a time limit for the quiz.
