ProctorU: Live online proctoring. ProctorU is an online proctoring service that allows exam takers to complete their assessment at home (or any location with internet access). Coupled with authentication, this service prevents cheating and imposters while ensuring the integrity of the exam. More information is available on the OCE Source Page for ProctorU.
