Accessibility

When we created Proctorio, we committed ourselves to expanding and protecting high-quality education for test takers with varying abilities. We are consistently improving our product by creating new partnerships, complying with industry standards, and developing exam settings that are completely customizable by the exam administrator.

When choosing your remote proctoring provider, you need to decipher which platform not only complies with your standards, but is also equipped to assist and better the test-taking experience for your test-takers.

Voluntary Product Accessibility Templates (VPATs)

Proctorio partnered with Deque Systems, experts in user accessibility and compliance, to produce a set of externally-validated VPATs, including a WCAG 2.1 AA, 508, and EN 301 549.

Encouraging accommodations and empathy

At Proctorio, we encourage all of our exam administrators to speak with their test takers before the exam to intentionally build an exam environment that suits each test taker’s unique needs.

Our customizable settings allow exam administrators to meet accommodation requests made by their test takers on a per-user basis.

In addition, users can enable High-Visibility Mode during the pre-checks before the start of the exam.

More equitable software

For us, this is an iterative process of improvement as we enhance our platform’s accessibility and grow our company’s understanding to provide more equitable user experiences among our end users.
