BYU-Idaho needed a next generation learning integrity solution to replace antiquated system

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) July 31, 2018

Proctorio announces today it has been selected as the official learning integrity solution for BYU-Idaho, marking an important new era at the institution. With the addition of Proctorio's robust platform, BYU-Idaho no longer needs to rely on the use of physical testing centers, allowing faculty and students the flexibility that is needed in this digital age to conduct tests from anywhere, anytime.

Challenges with BYU-Idaho's existing proctoring software - that had been in place since 1971 - led the institution to seek a new solution. According to BYU Testing Services, "during the past couple semesters we have proctored over 30,000 exams through Proctorio at BYU-Idaho and have had remarkable success with the tool."

Before Proctorio, faculty were experiencing an increase in missing scores and missing student registrations as well as general administration difficulties. Unable to repair the existing tool, the institution set out to find a complete, modern proctoring solution that could support the changing modes of assessment in several core ways:

  • Allows students to take tests from anywhere
  • Enables faculty to easily transition exams that are currently proctored at a testing center
  • Allows proctoring of a variety of assessments, including multiple choice, true/false, and most essay item types
  • Provides enhanced statistical reports to help analysis of student exam data

"We're excited to expand our relationship with BYU-Idaho, and help ensure academic integrity across the institution," says Mike Olsen, CEO of Proctorio.
