Assigning students to off-campus or online-proctored tests

Note: Those receiving proctoring services from the FSU Testing Center will have these steps completed for them 5-10 days before the exam starts.

For exams to be proctored in multiple formats simultaneously, they must be duplicated and configured for each mode of proctoring. Otherwise, they may not be able to access the exam and the Canvas Gradebook may penalize them for not taking the original version.

See instructions below, and feel free to contact the FSU Testing Center for assistance.

Assign Students to the Off-Campus/Online Exam

  1. Navigate to your course site.
  2. Select Quizzes on the course navigation menu and locate your exam. You should see two or three versions of your exam created by the FSU Testing Center staff. If you don't, please contact the Testing Center. It's possible the copy has not yet been created (and needs to be), or you may not need a separate copy of your exam because all of your students test the same way (ie, all are testing on campus or all are testing off campus).
  3. Open the off-campus or online version to see the Quiz overview. It can be helpful to have the original and the duplicate side-by-side in different browser windows.
  4. In the off-campus version, remove “Everyone” from the Assign window and instead add the names of any student(s) who will take the off-campus version. If different availability dates are needed for the off-campus version, make sure to enter them. (Click image below to enlarge it)
  5. Select the Save button.
  6. You will get a pop-up warning stating that the off-campus version is not assigned to the entire class. Select the Continue button in the pop-up warning window.

Excuse Students from the Original Exam

  1. On the course navigation menu, select Grades.
  2. Find the row for your student and the column for the original version of the exam. You can use the search bar at the top of the page to isolate a single student's grade row.
  3. Select the grade cell.
  4. Excuse the student from this exam version by typing “ex” in the cell. Then, press Enter on your keyboard, or click on a different cell.

    Alternatively, if you want to avoid typing, click on the cell and select the arrow-surrounded-by-rectangle icon that appears in the right of the cell. In the panel that appears on the right of the screen, select the yellow excused radio button.
