Proctored Testing

Your course may require one or more of your assessments to be proctored. If your instructor requires a proctored test environment there are several options which are listed below. Be sure to check the course syllabus so that you know which test proctoring option your instructor requires.

Pensacola State College Test Centers

Pensacola State College has test centers on five campuses; Pensacola, Milton, Warrington, Century, and South Santa Rosa. The hours differ at each, so be sure to call and find out what the open hours are. It is the student’s responsibility to make an appointment well ahead of time as the slots fill up quickly, especially around heavier semester exam times like mid-term and final.

PSC’s Testing Center Web Site


Proctorio is a remote proctoring solution designed to protect the integrity of course assessments. Proctorio runs as an extension in the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browsers and only works within the Canvas environment.  You will need a webcam and microphone to use Proctorio, and you will need to use a computer (not a mobile device) to take your exam. If your exam requires Proctorio, directions to download and install the extension will be found in your course.

Proctorio upholds FERPA, COPPA, and GDPR compliance, and only runs while you are taking your exam. Your connection is encrypted end-to-end. After your exam ends, you may uninstall the extension. You will be reminded to reinstall the extension again before starting your next exam. After your exam session ends only your instructor will have access to your exam data.

Respondus LockDown Browser

Respondus LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment making it so you cannot access anything else from your computer while taking an exam. You will need to download and install the browser on your computer. To take an exam, simply click the LockDown browser icon on your desktop, and log into Canvas. When an assessment is started, you are locked into the exam until it is submitted for grading. Respondus LockDown Browser is available for both Windows and Mac.
