Where the Remote Testing Experience Begins

Guardian is a secure internet browser that connects test-takers to their ProctorU proctoring sessions across all service lines – Live+, Review+, and Record+.

Providing More of What You Need in Remote Proctoring

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.

Enhanced Security

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.

Streamlined Experience

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.

Equitable Testing Sessions

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.
