Reviewing Session Results Best Practices

3 min. readlast update: 04.23.2024

Honorlock provides Session Results, that provide insights about what occurred during test taker sessions. Honorlock provides video recordings and chat transcripts. Below we have some best practices to follow to maximize the results.  

  • When attempting to view individual sessions, utilize the Exam Results page. Use the Filter and Sort by drop down menu, to locate the Violations, Pop-In Occurred and High flags first. 


  • To review a test taker's session history, click the down arrow next to Review button. Once expanded, the number of pop-ins, support sessions, proctor flags, AI flags, and test taker information will be displayed. 


  • When in the individual session, turn on the screen control on the screen recorder window by right-clicking on it and then selecting “Show Controls.” You may also hide it by doing the same.


  • You can easily navigate the screens using the tab and the arrow keys.
  • From the Download dropdown menu in the upper right corner of the session viewer, you can download the Profile Picture Fail, Profile Picture, Webcam Video,  Screencapture Video, and Request the Full Session footage.  The controls under the webcam video can be used to change the playback settings, increase the speed, and skip through the webcam video. Note: For the screen recorder footage (right), you can access this menu by clicking on the 3 vertical dots, on the right. You can also zoom in by clicking on the square icon.

  • To navigate to a particular event within the recording, click on the event within the session's log list. Please note, that reviewing results works best when in full screen. However, zooming the browser window to 90% or less will allow for easier navigation of session events.

  • Below the recordings, you will also have the ability to review your exam-specific guidelines, as well as reference the specific question associated with a notated event. In this area, you may also reference chat logs conducted during the session, analyze Multi-Device detection occurrences, and review audio transcripts. Viewer, Chat, and Transcript tabs are all dynamic and will only be visible if detected and recorded during the test taker's session.
  • For a high level overview of events and descriptions of events for an exam, use the Summary Report. This view will not provide footage to each individual session.


  • To provide direct feedback to a test taker regarding their assessment, click on the Email Icon
    • Note: In order to leverage this email option, it must be sent through your computer’s email client instead of through the browser.


  • You may also export the summary report by clicking on Summary Export at the top right. This will be useful when needed to forward this information.
  • Upon completing your review, an indicator will show that the session has been reviewed.
