Proctorio announced today its partnership with GraphLock to provide online testing institutions with another layer of exam security. GraphLock is an affordable scientific graphing calculator app with a secure device mode that helps students avoid high-cost and outdated calculators while protecting academic integrity. Powered by GraphLock, Proctorio’s fully automated online proctoring system verifies student identities, secures exam content, and protects academic integrity during computer-based exams using mobile technology safeguards.
Proctorio’s partnership with GraphLock allows testing institutions to ensure a fair test environment for all students by preventing the use of mobile devices during online exams. Proctorio, known for its industry-leading data security and privacy protections, is now offering forward-thinking online learning programs the opportunity to further secure test environments and defend the reputations of their online degrees and certificates.
