Sensitivity Levels for Respondus Monitor Proctoring Results

When to Use?

The Proctoring Results in Respondus Monitor now supports three sensitivity levels: Strict, Standard, and Relaxed. Instructors can select the Sensitivity level that best aligns with their exam requirements. Changing the sensitivity level affects flagged events and the Review Priority value.

Sensitivity Levels:

Strict - Strict sensitivity adds a “Partially Missing” flag to indicate when the student’s eyes and/or portions of their face aren’t appearing in the proctoring video. This setting is appropriate for tests where students aren’t using outside resources like books, calculators, or scratch paper.

Standard - Standard sensitivity, which is the default setting, is for a typical exam where students have a frontal camera and are mostly looking in the direction of their screen.

Relaxed - Relaxed sensitivity relies less on face detection and more on whether a student is somewhere in the video frame. A MISSING flag will still result if a person cannot be detected. Relaxed sensitivity is recommended for exams that permit students to use additional resources (notes, books, calculators etc.), write on paper, or need to look away from their screen.
