Authorization is what happens next or “behind the door” and doesn’t require you to change existing protocols.
ProctorFree’s authentication system allows us to separate authentication from your authorization. Your LMS or system uses your authorization, user ID, and login but uses our authentication token as your password thus tying authentication to your authorization.
Institutions offering online courses are required by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 to have processes in place to verify that the student who signs up or registers for a distance education course or similar program is the same student that participates in the courses and receives the academic credit.
ProctorFree’s online student authentication solution meets the standards outlined in the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008. ProctorFree also ensures all of our solutions are FERPA compliant and we maintain focus on keeping the institution and student protected by requiring the minimum amount of information and treating it with the strictest protocols. Authentication solutions and technology has long been in place in other industries and can be easily adopted to fit the needs of higher education.
