Subject: [Athen] Monitoring Students During Tests

Hello everyone:

I know I've asked this before on the AHEAD list but I don't think I have here. If so, please accept my apologies for the repeat post.

Currently, we have a camera system for monitoring our students in the testing center. On the computers, we have a program called SentryPC, which logs everything on the computers -- keystrokes, sites visited, programs open, etc. With this program, I can block access to certain sites. Problem is that it is always killed off by Symantec Antivirus (despite exceptions), the web interface is not very accessible (I am a blind screen reader user), and a host of other issues.

I am trying to find other solutions, because my administration is reluctant to get rid of this program until I find a replacement.

What are folks using to monitor their testing computers? Ultimately, it should not interfere with any assistive technology, including screen readers, which I would imagine the browser lockdown programs probably do.

Looking forward to whatever people have to say on this matter.
