Academic Integrity and Online Assessments and Examinations

In his Spring 2021 update, the Provost announced that USC will discontinue the use and support of the Respondus Monitor proctoring tool. To assist faculty in identifying alternatives, and for those who wish to explore assessment options for their midterms, the Center for Excellence in Teaching (CET) will be offering assessment workshops during the month of February.  CET is also available for individual, department, and school consultations regarding assessment options and course design.
