Record video 

Enabling the record video option will record the student via webcam during the entire exam. The exam footage will be available to the professor after the exam has been completed and can be viewed through the Proctorio exam video player.

Record audio 

Record audio will record the sound of the surroundings via a microphone during the exam. This could include student talking to others, others talking to student or changes in ambient noise.

Record screen 

The record screen option will take screenshots of the students' entire desktop while they are within the exam. Recording the screen allows the professor to view exactly what the student was seeing on their monitor. This could include other programs, websites, etc. Proctorio will take screenshots based on certain triggers: student answers a question, student clicks the mouse, student copies values, student pastes values, student resizes their browser, and student leaves the exam page.

Record web traffic

This option records any web page visited during the exam. When this option is enabled, the URL of the website will be collected as well as a screenshot of the page that the student is viewing.

Record room

Record Room prompts the student to show you his or her test environment during an exam. When this feature is enabled, the student is required to slowly scan the room and work area with his or her webcam or laptop.
