Distance Education - Proctoring
Lamar State College Orange is proud to offer online students the opportunity to take their exams at home by using BioSig-ID and BioSight-ID which ensures the academic integrity of the exam for the institution. This proctoring service allows students to complete their assessment at any location with a web cam, microphone, computer, and reliable internet access. There are no fees associated with this service.
BioSig-ID is an authentication tool that uses biometrics to make it more difficult for unauthorized users to access secure data or commit fraud as another individual. It is also used to minimize academic dishonesty in online courses. It is a requirement of SACSCOC that member institutions verify the identity of distance education students, and BioSig-ID helps us to fulfill that requirement.
BioSight-ID is an exam monitoring alternative to traditional live proctoring methods by providing a passive, proven way to monitor students during exams.
