Options to secure a digital test
- Use password
Require students to fill in a password to access the assignment.
- Restricted access to other pages
When setting up the accessibility settings for a digital test, you have the option to restrict access to other pages. Students cannot visit other pages within the application while taking the test
- Restrict assignment access locations
If you require your students to take an exam from a specified location, such as an examination hall at your school, you can enable this option and select one or multiple locations. This means students can only access the test from the specified IP address. Please note, that this option can only be done by administrators.
- Safe Exam Browser
The Safe Exam Browser can be used to prevent a student from accessing anything other than Ans during the test. The student needs to download the Safe Exam Browser on their own laptop, or the institution needs to install the Safe Exam Browser on all devices in an examination hall.
The Proctorio integration records the student during the test as well as recording the student's screen and giving a notification if any other web pages were accessed during the test. Please keep in mind that a license is needed for the Proctorio integration.
