Freed-Hardeman University recognizes the need to validate the identity of the learner and ensure the integrity of the assessment process in digital learning environments. Student identity and assessment integrity may be facilitated through various means such as authentic assessments, presentations, portfolios, timed exams, intense writing assignments, and proctored exams. Proctored testing is one method to enable the university to ensure the academic integrity of assessments and to comply with federal regulations that require universities offering online and distance education to verify student identity. The instructor of a distance learning course may elect to require proctored exam(s) as a means of assessment. Freed-Hardeman University has partnered with Honorlock to help bridge the gap between student convenience and academic integrity through the use of proctored exams. Honorlock provides on-demand proctoring services for schools and universities that is designed with the student in mind. Students are now able to take an exam in the comfort of his/her home at any hour of the day and have a live virtual proctor to administer the exam at no cost to the student.
