How do I take an exam with Proctorio?

Read the instructions that come with exam. When you are done reading, click "Take the Quiz".

Read the Proctorio instruction on the next page. Make sure you understand which information will be collected while you are taking the exam and the resources you are allowed to use. Failure to provide necessary information or use resources that are not allowed may cause you to fail the exam.
