Proctoring for Remote Instruction

Honorlock is the online proctoring service adopted for use with remote instruction. Honorlock provides services similar to what a student would experience when visiting a testing center, with identity verification and capture of that ID, and monitoring and recording of the testing environment. The service uses a Chrome extension and records the webcam and screen activity during the exam period.

Each class will be able to use the online proctoring service for four exams during the Fall semester.

On Ground

Scheduled Exams

UNF's definition of distance learning allows for up to 8 hours of classroom contact in a 3 credit hour course. Instructors can choose to have the class meet only for exams if they work with their department to schedule space and advertise the planned meeting times in advance of course registration. For more information, see the Hybrid and Distance Learning Course Delivery page.


Department-Organized Testing

Instructors can make arrangements within their program or department to reserve space in campus computer labs for proctored testing for student able to attend campus.


National College Testing Association

UNF is a member of the Consortium of College Testing Centers (CCTC), a free referral service provided by the National College Testing Association (NCTA) to facilitate distance learning. The purpose of the CCTC is to make test administration services available to students at educational institutions away from their campuses. Those testing centers typically require a per-test fee.
