Live Proctoring Online Assessments

This article will guide you through the process of live proctoring an online assessment in Classify Learning.  Live Proctoring is used to monitor live student progress throughout an online assessment.  It can also be used as a powerful formative tool to engage students in assessments for learning.   Please note that while live proctoring is available for use within Free Teacher accounts, formative advanced features such as Pacing Mode and Answer Reveal are only available for Premium Teacher accounts.

To access the Live Proctoring Dashboard to monitor live student results, start from within an assessment that has an administration created.  

  • Select the tile for View Assessments
  • Select the assessment you'd like to Live Proctor by clicking on the name of the assessment.
  • Next, click on the Administrations tile: 
  • To access the Live Proctoring dashboard, click on the number of students who are rostered to the test:

The Live Proctoring dashboard shows student responses live as they are progressing through the test.  Students who access the assessment will automatically be added to the dashboard.  

Live Proctoring Tools and How to Use Them:

  1. Pie chart: Shows how many students have Started, Paused, and Finished the assessment.
  2. Bar chart:  Shows the number of students who answered each question correct or incorrect.
    1. Hovering over an individual bar shows the question-specific number of students correct, incorrect, and partially correct as well as the average number of seconds the students spent on that question.
    2. Blue bar indicates a question that needs to be manually scored by a teacher
    3. The small pie chart icon can be used to minimize the bar chart at the top if needed.
  3. Live Proctoring Main Dashboard:  Shows all students who have accessed the assessment in this administration.  
    1. Student list defaults to alphabetical order.  The color bar below the student name shows their status:  Green = Finished, Yellow = Paused, and Blue = In progress.  
    2. Each column represents a question on the assessment.  The percentage shows the number of students who have answered that question correctly.  A green tile means the student answered correctly.  A red tile in this column means the student answered incorrectly.  
    3. A column that remains gray as students are responding indicates the item is not auto-scored and will need to be manually scored by the teacher.
    4. Hand-raise feature:  This tool allows students to virtually raise their hand during an online test.  The teacher will get an alert that says a teacher is requesting assistance.  The teacher can "acknowledge" the request once the student has been assisted.
    5. Pause feature:  This feature will pause all students in the test administration.  Students will no longer be able to view the current question they are on or navigate to another question.  Disabling the pause feature will allow students to resume the test.
    6. Pacing Mode:  This feature will allow the teachers to select a specific question and move all students to that question within the test.  This means the teacher is pacing the students through the test and students will not be able to move within questions on their own.  This feature is often used during a formative assessment where a teacher may want students to have a discussion around a particular item.  Also, this feature is used by teachers of younger students who may need help moving from item to item in a timely manner.  
  4. Answer Hide Mode:  This mode allows a teacher to display the live proctoring dashboard to students on a projector screen during a formative assessment without not revealing the correct answer to all students.  Students will only be able to see if they got the answer correct or incorrect, but not see the correct answer.

  5. Answer Reveal Mode:  This mode allows students to "lock in their answers" so the teacher can reveal whether the students were correct or incorrect.  With this mode enabled, a gray checkmark will appear when the student submits their answers.  Once all students have answered, the teacher can disable this mode, revealing whether the students were correct or incorrect. 

  6. Pacing Mode:  As described above, this mode allows teachers to "pace" students through the test by selecting a particular question they would like all students to be viewing.  To enable the feature, click on the button above or click "Toggle Pacing Mode" within the Proctoring Tools menu.  Then navigate to the question list and select the specific question to place all students on within the test.  

  7. Access Code:  This menu allows the teacher to display, reset, and disable the current auto-generated quick access code. 

  8. Administration Tools:  This menu allows the teacher to see the details of the administration, such as which test tools have been applied.  The teacher can also mass pause the assessment for all students and mass finish the assessment for all students.  Finally, teachers can switch to another test administration by selecting "Switch Administration".

  9. Student Options Menu:  Click on the Students tab and then select the cogwheel next to an individual student.  This menu allows the teacher to view the individual student's profile, update the students testing tools, force finish the assessment, and pause the assessment.  

  10. Questions tab:  Allows the teacher to see the student responses on each individual question.  View Details allows the teacher to pull up and view the actual itembank question.  Mass Scoring allows the teacher to mass score the question for all students.  This is often used on constructed response questions where a teacher wants to give all students credit for an item.  Answer distribution allows a teacher to see the distribution of student responses for the specific question, such as the percentage of students who choose the answer A.  

  11. Details Tab:  Allows the teacher to see the start time, stop time, and current status of the student within the assessment.
