Proctorio, a leading remote proctoring and test security solution, and Derivita, a first-of-its-kind STEM assessment platform, have partnered to provide educators with the test security tools they need to ensure academic integrity in hybrid and online classes. Educators in high schools, colleges, and universities can now enable Proctorio Lock Down settings on any Derivita assignment, quiz, or exam at no additional cost.
“The coronavirus pandemic changed nearly every aspect of modern life overnight, and education is no exception,” Derivita Founder and CEO Devlin Daley said. “Through our partnership with Proctorio, we’re working to help high school districts, colleges, and universities meet these challenges head-on. Our aim is to provide educators with the tools they need to deliver an effective and secure online teaching and learning experience.”
Proctorio and Derivita first announced their partnership in August when Proctorio’s remote proctoring platform was fully integrated with Derivita’s cloud-based STEM assessment platform. This integration enabled educators to administer online assignments, quizzes, and exams, with Proctorio’s exam security and remote proctoring, on Derivita’s proprietary platform to students across the globe.
Now, all Derivita educators can enable Proctorio Lock Down settings on any Derivita assignment, quiz, or test directly from their LMS course. These settings can be easily customized based on the assignment and the needs of the course. Educators can secure their course content, prevent printing or sharing, restrict internet navigation, and prevent the use of external resources.
With the rapid transition to online teaching and learning in March, Proctorio usage has skyrocketed to proctoring to 2.5 million exams each month at over 1,000 educational institutions worldwide. Proctorio proudly supports an uptime of 99.99% and an average support chat response time of 7.9 seconds.
“In the past, subject matter for remotely proctored exams has been limited since STEM courses often require specific tools and platforms to accurately assess a student’s knowledge,” said Proctorio Founder and CEO Mike Olsen. “Through our partnership with Derivita, we aim to provide more students with an opportunity to study and learn remotely and expand the subject areas in which Proctorio’s platform can be used. We want students in high schools, colleges, and universities to be able to take STEM courses with the highest level of academic integrity regardless of whether they are online or in-person.”
