Setting Up Honorlock
Here are the steps to setting up Honorlock on a Canvas quiz.
1) Open the Honorlock page in your course.
If this is your first time using Honorlock in your course(s), you will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org to have Honorlock imported. Once Honorlock has been added to your course, it will transfer along with the rest of the course content whenever you export it in future semesters/sandboxes.
2) Find the quiz and click the Enable button.
After Honorlock gets enabled on a quiz, the Enable button will be replaced with Results and Settings buttons.
3) Select your settings and click Save at the bottom of the page.
The Proctoring Settings section determines which functions Honorlock will require for that quiz. The Student Guidelines doesn't have a direct impact on what happens during the quiz, but certain options such as Open Book Allowed may affect how strict the automated webcam proctoring is since students may need to lean partially out-of-frame to access their open book/notes/scratch paper. All of these settings can be modified later even after the quiz is published and Honorlock enabled. To disable Honorlock from a quiz, come back to this Settings page and click Disable next to where you find the Save button.
4) View proctoring results by clicking the Results button.
A guide for viewing Honorlock results can be found at this page from their Knowledgebase. Every student's submission gets an "incident level" rating based on what Honorlock's automated proctoring system observed during the quiz. Please note that a high rating does not automatically indicate that a student cheated on their quiz, so you should open their session to determine why their submission was flagged. If you determine that a student has conducted academic misconduct, any disciplinary actions are yours to determine and carry out as Honorlock does not affect any student grades.
OTHER THINGS TO KNOW
Honorlock will export along with the rest of your course content if you ever copy a course into a new course shell, whether it's a live course or sandbox. You will need to open the Honorlock page in the new course to verify whether or not you want to copy the proctoring settings from the previous course, but Honorlock should be ready to go after confirming that you want to keep the previous settings.
