New Service for Online Proctoring: SmarterProctoring

Auburn University is pleased to announce a partnership with SmarterProctoring, a testing management system to help facilitate proctored exams. SmarterProctoring works within our Canvas LMS.  It also meets Auburn University criteria for ensuring the validity and integrity of proctored exams.   It will allow students to schedule their exam with either AU Testing Services, approved online  proctoring services or approved proctors at other locations from within Canvas. 

To use  SmarterProctoring  in scheduling your exams, start by making it active within your course

  • Click SmarterProctoring in the left navigation panel, and follow the instructions to setup your course.
  • Once you setup your course click “Add Exam” from the course.  Then complete the “Add Exam" form inside of SmarterProctoring making sure that all information concerning the exam has been added to the form. If you are setting up an exam that has been published in Canvas you should see it listed in the drop down menu at the top of the form.

(Note: Under the Proctor Types please make sure that “Institution Testing Centers” is selected so that Auburn Testing Services will be available for your students. You can also select other options for your students including other testing centers, and/or virtual proctoring for those students away from the University.)

  • After completing the add exam form, instruct your students to go to SmarterProctoring within their course in Canvas and schedule with Auburn Testing services or one of the other options you have made available.

If you have questions and or require additional information about this service, contact Ernestine Morris-Stinson, AU Biggio Center | Testing Services at 844-3114 or via email
