Proctored testing is traditionally required for many of Florida State College at Jacksonville’s online and hybrid courses. Due to the impact of COVID-19 and at the direction of the state of Florida, all FSCJ college courses are being transitioned to an online format. With all courses shifting online, students that previously tested with their instructor in a face-to-face classroom may now be required to complete a proctored test. In order to adhere to CDC guidelines and reduce the need for students to visit an Assessment Center in person, the College has partnered with SmarterServices, LLC to offer students the ability to test at home using the automated proctoring service, SmarterProctoring™. Please check with your instructor to determine if automated proctoring will be used for your courses.
SmarterProctoring™ is an automated proctoring system that uses AI technology to monitor students during exams and allows them to test from the comfort of their own home. The system ensures that test integrity is maintained through the use of web cameras and screen monitoring software. The system also includes identity verification using images of the student and their photo id that are captured for review by the course instructor. The system also records testing sessions and bookmarks points in the recording where academic honor violations may have occurred.
