    How to setup Proctorio for a Quiz

    • Create a practice quiz for students to set up and test Proctorio with enough time to work out any issues. 
    • Pacific College does not offer support for Proctorio. Support must be obtained through Proctorio.
    • A Mac, Windows PC, or Chromebook running the Chrome browser is required. Mobile operating systems such as iOS (iPad/iPhone) and Android are not supported.
    • After importing a Proctorio quiz, you must go into the quiz activity and let the Proctorio settings restore themselves before editing and saving any quiz settings. If you do not allow Proctorio to import the settings in the quiz activity, then you will have to manually reconfigure Proctorio for your imported quiz.
