How to Access/Use Honorlock

The online testing environment should mimic the “in-class” testing environment. Refer to the Honorlock Standard Exam Guidelines for detailed exam rules. Your instructor may have additional rules for their exams, so pay attention to any directions they provide.

Using Chrome, log into Canvas, navigate to your course, and click the 'Honorlock' link in the course navigation menu.

Step 2

Select 'Launch' next to the name of the test you wish to take, then click the green 'Launch Proctoring' button.

Step 3

Follow the prompts to complete the ID verification and room scan. Acceptable forms of identification include government or school-issued ID cards.
