Hello HK,

Following up on a thread from September 2020 ...

> Never used slots before so am not familiar with it.

The documentation for LON-CAPA 2.11.3 (released March 2021) now includes extensive information on the use of slots. See:

Thanks, Mark. Never used slots before so am not familiar with it.

We use Proctortrack, which can copy a hidden password onto a student’s clipboard.

As per earlier advice from Dave Hannum at Purdue, you can assign a slot to a folder.
The slot is the key.

In order to access the slot, a student needs to verify the proctor. If this were live the
proctor would walk up, verify the identification and then type their username and
a secret code for the assessment.

Here the student is required to type in the name of the proctor user (we created a user
with the creative name “proctor” and assign it as an exam proctor in the course) and then
paste the hidden password into the proctor password.

Proctortrack has a process they call onboarding during which the students provide
data so that they can be recognized later. The onboarding process also acts as a
sample exam for them to try all of the mechanics.

My sample video that I created for the onboarding process for this semester can be
found at:

If Honorlock passes the password via the clipboard and hidden, this process will work.

I know Gerd said they used it with examity at MSU.

Let me know if you have any questions.

> Hi all,
> Has anyone used LONCAPA for online exams with Honorlock? Honorlock requires a password that is passed to the students by Honorlock when the students start the exam. This is to ensure that the students are on Honorlock when they are taking the exam. I am not aware that LONCAPA can be set up that way. Any help is appreciated.
