In 2020, the uniTEST will be conducted as an online test with remote proctoring. This means:
- You’ll participate in the uniTEST online on your own computer.
- Your participation will be monitored by a remote proctor to ensure that the test is completed in accordance with our rules. The proctor will monitor your screen and will also be able to see you and your surroundings via your webcam.
Monitoring of your test is performed by ProctorU, a company specializing in online tests and exams.
#1 – Create your account at ProctorU and test your IT-equipment
Your participation at the uniTEST will be monitored by an online exam supervisor (proctor) from ProctorU. The proctor secures, through the help of your webcam, microphone and screen monitoring, that you conduct the test correctly. You can conduct the test on a PC and a MAC. You cannot conduct the test on an iPad, tablet or other control systems. Make sure that your computer matches the technical requirements before the test takes place:
- Go to go.proctoru.com/students/users/new to create an account. State “The University of Southern Denmark” as your institution.
- Click on www.proctoru.com/testitout to test your computer. If you use MacOS X Catalina, you must allow screen recording before starting the uniTEST. Check out how.
- Test the connection by clicking on “connect to a live person”.
NOTE: If you have attended the entrance examination of the Journalism programme in 2020, you do not create a new account. You use your existing data to book a new exam time.
You are solely responsible for, that your computers set-up and internet connection is compatible with the remote monitoring by ProctorU.
