Notes about online course access requirements:
This course will utilize Honorlock for the final exam to ensure exam integrity. Honorlock ensures exam integrity and enables administration of remote online exams. All exam sessions will be reviewed as part of your final grade. Instances of cheating or inappropriate behavior will be considered violations of the Student Honor Code and will result in disciplinary action.
Honorlock is very simple! All you will need to do is log into Canvas and click on the quiz you need to take. You will be prompted to add the Honorlock Chrome Extension, which is required to take your exam. You are required to use Google Chrome as your browser. Then you will need to take a picture, show your ID, and scan your room. Honorlock will be recording you VIA webcam and microphone and they will be recording your screen. They also have an integrity algorithm that can detect search-engine use, so do not attempt to cheat or look up answers, even if its a secondary device.
How do you get started?
Honorlock is not a live proctoring service, you do not need to schedule an appointment with Honorlock in advance.
When you are ready to take your exam, log into Canvas, go to your Course, and click on your exam. When you click on "Take your Exam," you will start the authentication process before you begin your exam.
If you see a page asking for an access code, it means that you did not install the Honorlock Chrome Extension or you are not in Google Chrome.
