August 2018 update to Respondus Monitor

Instructors, if you’ve ever used Respondus Monitor to help secure a test such as a midterm or final you may have been a bit confused by the video review portion. Previously, the video review had a row simply titled “flags” that may or may not have been a cause for concern. As of July 31, 2018, a new dashboard has been released.

The new dashboard includes a “Review Priority” scoring system (Low, Medium, High) that provides instructors an easy way to identify exam sessions that require deeper scrutiny. It accounts for both the quality of the student video and suspicious events that indicate exam violations may have occurred. The “Review Priority” is also color coded from green (Low) to red (High).Respondus dashboard screen shot

The review screen has also been updated. Time codes of flagged activity, as well as test milestones for when questions were saved, are available. The playback features have also been enhanced with the addition of a color-coded playback bar.
