Guardian works alongside the ProctorU Platform to provide enhanced security, streamline the remote testing experience, and make proctoring sessions more equitable for all test-takers.
Security is paramount to our remote proctoring platform. When test-takers connect to their proctoring session, the Guardian Browser works in the background to protect your exam and safeguard your test-takers’ privacy. It secures the virtual environment by locking down each test-taker’s computer according to settings configured by exam administrators and continually checked throughout the exam.
Studies show that a smooth testing experience improves test-taker performance. The Guardian Browser simplifies the exam launch process, minimizes friction with test-takers, and optimizes testing performance.
Testing is intended to be fair and equitable for all test-takers. The additional layers of security and focus on user experience in the Guardian Browser helps level the playing field for all test-takers by bolstering exam integrity and improving accessibility.
Did you know there are different kinds of secure browsers for different use cases, each with its own set of limitations and advantages? Read 3 ways your program or institution can benefit from a secure browser.
Guardian functions like other internet browsers you’re familiar with, so it can be used even when not connected to a ProctorU session.
When a test-taker is connected to a ProctorU session, Guardian locks down the testing computer functionality based on settings controlled by exam owners and performs continuous checks against those settings throughout the entire exam:
“Guardian is amazing! It worked seamlessly … and was very reliable.”
