WSU offers two online exam proctoring options for fall 2023

The Office of Instructional Resources has released the two programs for online exam proctoring through Blackboard this semester. 

“Honorlock” is an AI-powered proctoring and browser security option that is free to students. 

“Examity” is a human proctoring tool that will charge students anywhere from $11-17 to use for each exam. The price depends on the length and features of an exam, and courses are limited to offering four exams in a term through Examity.

For other test-taking options, contact the Office of Instructional Resources at [email protected].
