What is ProctorU Record+ (formerly ProctorU Auto)?

ProctorU Record+ is a student authentication service that verifies student identity and also provides exam recordings and machine-based (AI) proctoring reports that faculty can review. ProctorU Record+ requires students to take photos of their face and ID, answer challenge questions, and enter a biometric keystroke signature to verify their identity prior to taking any exam. ProctorU Record+ is encouraged and ideal for lower-stakes assessments.

Note: This service is not compatible with the Canvas "New Quizzes" feature.

Who can use ProctorU Record+?


Your instructor may elect to use student authentication (ProctorU Record+), live human proctoring (ProctorU Live+), both, or neither as part of their instruction. Your experience with ProctorU will be very different depending on which service your instructor uses, so please check with them if you are unsure which service is being used.


Faculty must promote online assessment integrity and deter cheating within their courses. To this end, MSU Denver has integrated ProctorU, an online platform that provides exam-reviewing and proctoring capabilities, within Canvas.
