  • Enable Secure Browser for the proctoring session and other additional configurations to customize Secure Browser

Activating the LTI App

Once the LTI app is activated from the Inspera side. The admin should launch the LTI app from a course in which the LTI app is enabled. When the admin launches the LTI app for the first time, the app will prompt for authorization for the API token which needs to be allowed. Once the activation is complete the LTI app is ready for use.

Viewing the Proctored Session

The post-exam review process aims to facilitate exam administration and student evaluation through the LMS. This document outlines the step-by-step procedure for administrators to access and review exam results, including utilizing playback view recordings of students

View the recording of the proctored quiz

  1. To view the recording of a proctored session of a quiz you can navigate to the quiz and select the student you want to view the recording for. 
  2. Click on Show student quiz results
  3. You will be able to see the number of attempts made by the student and view record button
  4. By clicking on the View Record the recording screen should open in a new tab.

LMS scheduling validations


Quiz data sync:

In the integrated workflow data is synchronized upon the creation, update, or deletion of a quiz in LMS. Following are the attributes that are processed as part of integration:

  • "quiz_title": Title of the quiz
  • "action": Action type (0 for New quiz Creation, 1 for update, and 2 for deletion)
  • "quiz_id": ID of the Quiz
  • "course_id": ID of the course in which the quiz is created
  • "course_module_id": Course Module ID of the quiz
  • "proctoring_enabled": Proctoring status (true or false)
  • "proctoring_type": Type of proctoring
  • "tsb_enabled": TSB (Time Slot Booking) status
  • "timeopen": Opening time of the quiz
  • "timeclose": Closing time of the quiz
  • "timelimit": Time limit for the quiz
  • "timemodified": Last modification time of the quiz
  • "timecreated": Creation time of the quiz

Enrollment data sync:

Quiz enrollment data is processed only if the quiz is marked for live proctoring. The Proview LMS integration layer pulls the data based on schedule identified for the customer. This logic can changed based on the LMS platform and its capability.

Following are the attributes that can be processed

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Email address
  • LMS user ID
  • Status
  • Extra time
  • Candidate instruction

Note: If automated data sync is not part of the implementation then the schedule and enrollment data should be sent to Inspera in CSV file format with the below mentioned fields


The validation process can be carried out by either the client or Inspera, with two distinct methods: client validation and Inspera validation.

Client validation involves the following steps:

  • Quizzes Creation: The client creates quizzes tailored to their specific requirements.
  • Data Sync: Once the quizzes are created, Inspera synchronizes the data.
  • Bulk Data Download: Inspera then downloads the synchronized data in bulk.

Offline Validation: The synchronized data is shared with the client offline, allowing them to validate the data at their convenience

Inspera validation involves the following steps:

  • Quizzes Creation: Client creates quizzes based on the specifications provided.
  • Information Sharing: The client shares the exam schedule and enrollment list with Inspera as per the template provided.
  • Schedule Validation: Inspera conducts validation checks on the provided exam schedule to ensure if all the quizzes are accurately created and visible in Inspera database
  • Enrollment Validation: Inspera verifies the enrollment list to confirm that all intended participants are correctly registered for the quizzes.


Once quizzes are created in LMS by the client, and exam schedule is shared with Inspera, the following validation steps are performed:

  • Quiz ID Check:
    • Verify if the quiz ID is visible in the Inspera database.
  • Proctoring Enabled:
    • Verify if "proctoring enabled" is set to true.
  • Proctoring Type:
    • Verify if the correct "proctoring type" has been selected: live_proctor/ai_proctor.
  • TSB Enabled (Secure Browser):
    • Verify if "TSB enabled" is false if the exam is configured without the secure browser.
    • Verify if "TSB enabled" is true if the exam is configured with the secure browser.
  • Quiz Open Time:
    • Verify if "Quiz open time" is set correctly as per the schedule, with a minimum of 30 minutes prior to the scheduled time in Proview
  • Quiz Close Time:
    • Verify if "Quiz close time" is set correctly as per the exam duration.
  • Onboarding buffer time:
    • The buffer time for onboarding can be adjusted to ensure that students join well in advance of the actual test start time, allowing them to complete pre-flight validations with the live proctor.


If enrolment information is shared, we can validate it against the data processed via integration.

  • Validate Student Count:
    • Using the quiz ID, verify that the student count enrolled matches the attendee sync count for each quiz.
  • Student Identification:
    • With the help of student email IDs or unique IDs, manually check if all the students in the enrolment list match the attendee sync data.
  • Validation Result:
    • The schedule and enrolment discrepancies are communicated to the client to enable them to make necessary corrections in the LMS platform and re synchronize the data accordingly.

Recommended validation cycle -

  • The data from LMS will be synced by Inspera at an interval of 4 weeks, 2 weeks, and 48 hours from the start of each exam date.
  • All Cancellations/rescheduling will be closed 48 hours prior to the test date. Any cancellation or changes to the bookings will still result in a chargeable session to the client.
  • Between 2 weeks to 48 hours from the exam date, the deviation on the extra candidate volume cannot be more than 5%

Approaches to Event Scheduling

  • Automated scheduling through cron jobs: Depending on the specific needs of the customer, scheduling can be automated by setting up cron jobs on a schedule. For institutional customers, like colleges and universities, it's advisable to configure the cron job to run once every 24 hours. However, this interval can be adjusted to a shorter timeframe upon customer request.
  • Manual scheduling: Once the initial two steps are completed, Inspera's Managed Service Team can proceed to manually organize the live proctoring sessions.

Important Notes:

  • Automatic scheduling occurs without manual intervention and is initiated 48 hours prior to the event.
  • Manual scheduling requires admin portal access and involves entering event details manually.
  • Once an event is scheduled and published, changes such as altering the date, time, or attendee list are restricted.
