Award Winning Remote Proctor PRO
enables students to take computer-based tests anytime – anywhere while maintaining the same exam-room integrity found in a proctored classroom.
Every day, thousands of students take exams in distance education programs without the appropriate oversight – putting an institution’s reputation at risk. Many other students go to great lengths and expense to achieve some level of oversight, whether going to a test center, commuting to campus, or scheduling a web proctor. Not exactly convenient. Isn't it time a remote test could be taken securely and on your terms?
Remote Proctor Pro is like putting a human proctor in every student's room. The gold-standard in remote test integrity, Remote Proctor Pro addresses every area of exam security by authenticating his or her identity and controlling a student's computer while watching and listening to the exam environment. This is achieved by integrated hardware and software components:
- Remote Proctor PRO is a hardware device that uses biometrics to authenticate the identity of the test-taker, records all sound, and videos a 360-degree view of the exam environment.
- Securexam is the patented software which provides access to computer-based exams while simultaneously locking down the desktop by preventing access to all other non-examination materials or applications.

Remote Proctor Pro - How it Works
Install: Student connects the Remote Proctor device to their computer, downloads the Securexam software from the Software Secure site and navigates to their institution’s course management system (Blackboard, Moodle, eCollege, etc). Enroll:
After gaining access to the CMS, the student then enrolls the Remote Proctor 360 device. Remote Proctor 360 collects students’ uniquely identifying information: a fingerscan and photograph. Authenticate:
Before taking exam, Remote Proctor 360 engages and prompts student to provide the biometric information collected during enrollment process. If the students’ biometric data is a match to the data provided during the enrollment process, the Securexam lockdown software engages while an encrypted password is automatically populated in the CMS providing access to the exam. Take an Exam:
Once in the exam, the student uses the Course Management System functionality. Behind the scenes, the Remote Proctor 360 device is recording all sound and motion and delivering the data to Software Secure servers for later review by Certified Video Review Specialists. These specialists are trained to Software Secure standards, and are fully versed in the Remote Proctor 360 administrative system. Video Review:
Post-exam, the audio and video of test-takers exam experience is available for reviewing . Multiple members of Software Secure's team of Certified Video Review Experts review each exam to facilitate quick efficient and accurate review of each exam. In all cases, the final decision rests with the customer as to what constitutes cheating.
