Due to recent updates with our technology, ProctorU is excited to now support Chromebooks with our automated service lines, Record and Record+. When running a system check on our website or from within your ProctorU account, you might see failed components as it relates to Flash. This is normal as some elements of our Live services still require this technology. However, this will not be required for Record or Record+ and thus Chromebooks will be supported when testing on our automated service lines. Please review the supported devices at ProctorU’s Auto Resource Center for any additional information.
