ProctorHub Frequently Asked Questions for Students
What is ProctorHub?
ProctorHub is an integration that assists UCF faculty members with quiz and exam authentication while helping to curb cheating. By utilizing test takers’ webcams and the modern features of current web browsers, we have been able to develop a program that captures the test taking process. If any complication or issue is suspected, the instructors are able to go back and investigate.
Why are we using ProctorHub?
ProctorHub is being used to assist in documenting a quiz in case of a cheating allegation.
How do I know that the webcam is working?

When instructors go back to view the captured images, they see a series of images. Once a week a script runs that compiles the images into a video.
