Integrity Lock

Integrity Advocate has combined its efforts with an Alliance of organizations including Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Monash University (Australia) & the University of Zurich that together sustain an open-source project to develop and maintain a new evolution lockdown browser that can turn any computer into a secure workstation.

Controlling in-assessment access to resources like system functions, other websites and applications is now possible, thus preventing unauthorized resources being used during an exam.

By combining privacy inspired participation monitoring software with the ability to convert any remote computer into a secure assessment environment, we have proven that privacy does not need to be sacrificed for the sake of academic integrity. The coexistence of both is now possible.

Integrity Lock is now accessible to all Integrity Advocate clients within current integrations.

Privacy First

Integrity Advocate now has the broadest set of privacy compliant technologies and services across the world. It is now possible to control rather than deter specific on-screen activities and provide services required in a manner that provides this control while ensuring compliance with privacy legislation including but not limited to GDPR, FERPA, POPIA, PIPEDA, BIPA, etc.

By combining privacy inspired participation monitoring software with the ability to convert any remote computer into a secure assessment environment, we have proven that privacy does not need to be sacrificed for the sake of academic integrity.

The coexistence of both is now possible.

Transparency First

Integrity Advocate for years refused to be connected with any product that required an install of software, extension or plugin because of the inherent security risks and requirement that learners trust that no one would be accessing more information than was required.

We have addressed the ’trust’ aspect by providing open access to ALL code involved with the launch install option. We have also configured the browser to prevent all in-assessment capabilities not allowed underassessment rules, rather than following the industry standard of collecting personal information and behaviours from the learner’s personal computer.

Additionally, and uniquely the Integrity Lock launch install does not have the capability to receive code alterations through a ‘push’ (a remotely triggered change in the code installed in a user’s computer). This means the highest standard of academic integrity AND privacy is now possible to any organization in any jurisdiction across the globe.

Our Motivation

Integrity Advocate has seen that although most organizations gravitate to a no-install option when it comes to proctoring due to minimal support requirements and the ability to work across a wide range of devices, some organizations have the need to control the assessment environment absolutely.

The expanded capability and unprecedented control Integrity Lock now gives organizations to control the assessment environment at a distance coupled with Integrity Advocate’s proven ability to verify the learner’s participation against the rules set, is now truly best-in-class.

Developed not only with simplicity and privacy as the primary goals, Integrity Lock is also the direct result of feedback heard from higher education organizations and their learners alike.
