Project description

Proctor Exam Xblock

Xblock restricting access to course test to Proctor Exam monitoring process.



Install this package with pip using FUN package index via:

$ pip install --extra-index-url xblock-proctor-exam

Alternatively, if you intend to work on this project, clone this repository first, and then make an editable installation via:

$ pip install -e ".[dev]"


Proctor Exam xblock relies on Configurable LTI Consumer which should also be installed in Python environment, therefore it also use its Django settings for configuration, see Configurable LTI Consumer documentation.

A typical Proctor Exam LTI configuration should look like this:

        "shared_secret": "TestSharedSecret",
        "oauth_consumer_key": "TestOauthConsumerKey",
        "display_name": "",  # this is required to let xblock register itself in studio
        "is_launch_url_regex": False,
        "automatic_resizing": None,
        "inline_ratio": None,
        "ignore_configuration": True,
        "show_button": False,
        "pattern": ".*fun\.proctorexam\.com/lti\?id=(?P<exam_id>[0-9]+)",
        "hidden_fields": [
        "defaults": {
            "launch_target": "new_window",
            "lti_id": "proctor_exam",

configurable-lti-provide also allows to set LTI OAuth credentials in LTI_XBLOCK_CONFIGURATION, or in an other constant LTI_XBLOCK_SECRETS which then can be stored in encrypted vault.

    "proctor_exam": {
        "shared_secret": "TestSharedSecret",
        "oauth_consumer_key": "TestOauthConsumerKey",

Or they can be set at course level in advanced settings

Add finally, proctor_exam to the list of advanced modules in the "advanced settings" of a course.

Please note that the workbench included in the present repository is running a standard configuration with fake credentials. (see config/settings.yml.dist)
