Remote proctoring online exams has become a necessary tool to enable a flexible remote learning environment. But like any new process, people can be skeptical of the unknown. When students initially hear about remote proctoring, it can cause anxiety and stress. Often there’s a lack of information or there’s misinformation that circulates among the student population.
But there are steps that academic institutions can take to put students at ease. By providing students with all the necessary information early on in the process, universities can create a student body that is supportive of online proctoring and can limit the number of questions and detractors.
