Restriction by IntegrityAdvocate
Moodle proctoring and identity verification brought to you by Integrity Advocate. The Integrity Advocate proctoring plugin for Moodle installs in minutes and saves you hours of support emails. Using our proprietary hybrid AI and human powered participation monitoring, we deliver a fast, easy and secure environment that is truly GDPR compliant because it doesn't share or store any unnecessary data.
Use of this plugin requires purchasing a paid service - please visit Integrity Advocate to get the credentials needed to be able to use this plugin.
The Integrity Advocate plugins allow Moodle to show a proctoring interface to students, interact with the Integrity Advocate service, and show monitoring results to instructors.
The Integrity Advocate block plugin can be added to Moodle activities and makes the Integrity Advocate proctoring interface show up for students, and gives instructors a way to view Integrity Advocate results. See also What are Moodle blocks?
The Integrity Advocate restrict access plugin can be added to a Moodle activity and prevents access to activities and resources depending on the Integrity Advocate results in another activity. It requires the Integrity Advocate block plugin. See also What are activity restrictions?
A nice feature is that the Integrity Advocate App will automatically change its language to that of the user's browser settings (over 64 languages supported).

This plugin does not store any data in Moodle. In order to function properly, this plugin sends data to the Integrity Advocate API. This data includes:
- User: full name, email, Moodle user id number;
- Enrolment: course-module id;
- Video session: identification card image, session start, session end, video of the user completing the activity;
- Override: override date, overrider full name, override reason, override status.
This information is sent using 256-bit encryption (the same used by major financial institutions), meaning your data is kept safe and secure. Integrity Advocate also restricts access by insecure web browsers to ensure data security.
Requirements for installation
- Purchase an API key and App ID from Integrity Advocate.
- Moodle 3.5 and above - see What version of Moodle am I using?
- You need administrator privileges in your Moodle instance.

- Moodle cron must be running often, ideally every minute or two - see Setting up cron on your system.
Requirements for students

The optional availability restriction (condition) prevents access to a course module depending on the Integrity Advocate results in another module.
Potential privacy issues
Integrity Advocate, when appropriately applied, can mitigate the majority of the privacy concerns that organizations can face when using monitoring technology. Please see the Privacy section in the Description and/or contact Integrity Advocate for more details.
