Honorlock in Canvas (Students)

Your instructor can use Honorlock to proctor your exams this semester. Honorlock is an online proctoring service that allows you to take your exam from your home. You DO NOT need to create an account or schedule an appointment in advance. Honorlock is available 24/7, and all that is needed is a computer, a working webcam, microphone, your ID, a stable Internet connection, and the Google Chrome browser. Honorlock WILL run on a Chrome Book and WILL NOT run on an iPad.

Honorlock provides on-demand proctoring services that removes access to test content from the Internet, prevents mobile devices from searching test answers online, disables multiple screens, and allows a live agent to help students through the authentication process before starting a quiz. Honorlock has students use a web camera during an online, technology-proctored exam that is taken from home and not in a TWU computer lab.
