How do I monitor my assessment?

Assessments can be monitored by teachers to ensure they are sat in proper exam conditions. This feature can help simplify invigilation by notifying the teacher if students are off task or having connection issues.


Monitored Assessment Mode complements a vigilant teacher in the exam room, but doesn't replace them. Overall responsibility for the integrity of the assessment stays with the teacher in the classroom.

Open Assessments from your Control Panel.

When creating your Assessment, make sure you have the Enable Full Screen Monitored Mode option selected. 

Note: Our monitoring system is not available on Safari. If your students are using a Mac, make sure they are using Google Chrome or Firefox instead. Students using Safari will be unable to begin the assessment if Enable Full Screen Monitored Mode is selected.

Once your assessment is set up with Enable Full Screen Monitored Mode selected, mouse over the assessment in the Assessments section of your Control Panel and click on Monitor.

Note: If you haven't selected Enable Full Screen Monitored Mode when creating your assessment, the Monitor option won't be visible when you mouse over it. 

On the Monitor page you will be able to see any events occurring for the students sitting the assessment. The symbols for these events are included in the Legend viewable in the bottom left of the screen. In this case we can see Alix Gilmore started and finished their assessment without issue.

Problems will be displayed as a red symbol in the feed, in the image below we can see that Alfie Sutton is currently not focused on the exam window. 

Students are required to be in full-screen mode when completing their assessment. If they attempt to navigate to another page,  click away from the window, or exit full-screen mode they will receive a large red warning. This is what Alfie would be seeing.
