Proctoring Software (Install & Setup)

In order for ASU to accept your Final Exam Passing Score, your entire final exam is being monitored by a proctoring software that you need to install on your PC/Mac.

This software prevents you from accessing any prohibited applications, websites, or the use of multiple monitors. Furthermore, throughout the entire length of your final exam, both microphone and webcam are required and are recorded for ASU to review after your final exam is submitted.

You can only start a proctored Final Exam when your computer passes all system checks. The system check is automatic, however you need to install the proctoring software prior to starting the exam.

This page walks you through how to download and install the proctoring software.
