One of the most interesting parts of working with user groups is finding out that a designed feature is being used in an unintended way.

This week, the Proctor Monitor is being released in response to just such feedback.  In one of the User Group Feature Demonstrations, a customer indicated instructors were refreshing the grades entry page every few seconds during an online exam to see which students finished their exam and how they scored.  Another customer indicated they were doing exactly the same thing, but for a different reason.  As an administrator, they were monitoring the exam from a different building to know immediately when someone had failed, so they could get started on removing the student from training.

As a result of this feedback, we designed the Proctor Monitor.  It automatically refreshes at the interval of your choosing.  It shows the score and the time it took for each student to complete the test.  It also has the ability to print an exam with the correct answers to review with the students.

This new feature will be demonstrated in this and next week’s User Group Feature Demonstrations along with documents for Inventory and being able to flag a document as containing social security number information and restricted from unauthorized viewing.
