Best Practices for Proctor U in Canvas

Best Practices for setting up a proctored exam in Canvas:

  1. From your course homepage, select “Quizzes” on the left hand navigation.
  2. Click the gear icon to the right of your proctored test and select “Edit.”
  3. Check the box next to “Time Limit” and enter the time limit for your course.
  4. Under “Quiz Restrictions” check the box next to “Require an access code.” Enter your password in the box that appears.
  5. Click Save.

Unlike Blackboard, the other settings on the page do not affect exam functionality or proctoring. You can set these as you wish.
