Hi All,

We've not used this before but are looking into it. We have some online courses currently running and will be using ProctorU for the exams in one of them. One concern that's been raised about the security here is what is to prevent a student from signing up for a slot to take the exam with proctor u, go through it quickly and claim to be done after about half the time is gone, sign off, etc. but then come back unproctored before the 90-minute time limit has expired?  I just tested this in my demo course and it seems that once the proctor has authenticated to give access, the student can log out of Lon-Capa, come back and have access again as long as the time has not expired.  Am I missing something there?  I admit readily to being a novice at using Slots so perhaps there's a setting there which could prevent that behavior?
