Respondus Monitor is a software-based video proctoring service that can be used when students take a test in Canvas. Respondus Monitor tracks and records suspicious behavior such as using a secondary device, calculator, textbook or receiving assistance from other students. Respondus Monitor creates a flagged and timestamped video for the instructor to review.
