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) and you don't see it on the course navigation list, you can find it by opening your course Settings page, switching to the Navigation tab, and dragging Honorlock from the hidden links group up to the visible links group.

Go to the Honorlock page by clicking the link in your course navigation bar on the left side of your screen

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.

Locate the quiz and click Enable

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, for example. Descriptions of every setting can be found on the following Honorlock Knowledgebase entry: Using Honorlock With Canvas.

All 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.

The Save and Disable buttons can be found at the bottom-right of the quiz's Honorlock settings page

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 a "risk" 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.



Quiz Compatibility & Consistency
Honorlock is primarily designed for the Canvas quiz tools. It can also be used on external quiz tools as long as those tools have an option to require a password to access the quiz. Details can be found at our Knowledgebase or Honorlock's Knowledgebase

Students will have to access their Honorlocked quizzes in a slightly different manner if you're using third-party quiz tools. Canvas quizzes can be directly opened from their normal locations within the course (such as from the Assignments page or in a module). Third-party quizzes need to be launched from the Honorlock page in your course. If a student directly opens their third-party quiz rather than launching it from the Honorlock page, they'll get stuck at the password screen because Honorlock needs to be running so it can input the hidden password for them.

Add a Practice Quiz
You should always keep a proctored practice quiz enabled throughout the duration of your course if you use Honorlock (or any other proctoring services). This lets students try out the proctoring software on their device before they need it for an actual quiz/exam. Be sure to leave the quiz open and allow for unlimited attempts in case a student needs to troubleshoot the software or if they switch devices during the semester. This will greatly decrease the likelihood of technical problems once an actual quiz comes along.
Honorlock can automatically create a three question practice quiz on its own by following these steps.
Copying Course Content
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 a sandbox. You simply 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, and Honorlock should be ready to go after confirming that you want to keep the previous settings.
