As education is undergoing a significant transformation with emerging technologies that facilitate digital learning, universities are now looking to administer online entrance & semester exams that will not compromise on the security, efficiency, convenience, and experience of educators and students.
Assessment providers are clubbing their remote proctoring solutions with robust AI enabled proctoring that provide test administrators an easy way to monitor and assess candidates from the safety of their home any time.
One of the main issues for institutes when managing an online examination is the apparent possibility of malpractice due to a lack of human invigilation. Since the trend of tests and exams has come into existence, invigilating has become a norm. Administrators want to track and monitor their candidates’ test activity to prevent them from malpractice, stop them from using unfair means like using external devices, web pages, on-drive resources, etc.
Proctoring with IntelliEXAMS®
Remote online proctoring is one of the modules of IntelliEXAMS® designed to maintain the sanctity of tests, even when conducted from home or a remote location. Proctoring can be done both via live proctoring while the exam is conducted and via post-test proctoring by viewing the recorded test session. Proctoring will require the test admin to map the necessary proctors to each test. IntelliEXAMS® has an AI enabled proctoring solution that not only prevents malpractices but also ensures the highest level of examination security and helps to maintain the integrity of the exam. With IntelliEXAMS®, test administrators can select the array of proctoring solutions that meet their requirements and budget and conduct high integrity online exams without any hassle!
Live proctoring involves setting up a real life-like testing environment where the online proctor monitors candidates. Very similar to an actual classroom setting, the proctor supervises the candidates in real-time and intervenes upon observing anything suspicious. The proctor will be able to easily monitor multiple candidates simultaneously. For instance, IntelliEXAMS® live proctoring solution provides a two-way live chat option, enabling the proctor and students to chat with one another to allay suspicions or queries while proctoring online exams. In live proctoring, the footage is taken from as many angles as possible to capture all the applicants (if multiple) and one or more proctors monitor them.
There is no monitoring of the feed in real-time in this type of proctored test. The screen share and audio-video feeds of the candidates are recorded throughout the test. The proctor reviews the recorded video later on completion of the test. The proctor scans the recordings in fast-forward mode and red-flags suspicious activities if any via annotations. Still in recorded proctoring, human intervention is needed for a review, making it comparatively expensive and unscalable. The Proctor can use this medium post the test to have a look at the wrongful activities (if any) that the applicants may have indulged in.
The automated proctoring solution automatically raises warning flags if a candidate is out of the frame, or chatting with someone in the test area, or tries to access the web. The assessment software monitors the eye movement and browser activity of the candidate while taking the test, and presents an in-depth report of the candidate’s behavior and activity at the end of the test. The credibility report comes with screen recording and live feed video embedded along with the flags that the AI algorithm raises. IntelliEXAMS® proctoring solution can be used to detect instances of possible fraud in auto proctored online tests. It can detect whether a different software or window has been accessed or the presence of another person in a room. The proctor is alerted of such suspicious activities and can review them, providing incredible ease and integrity to the process of proctoring online exams. The upside of using an auto proctoring test is that there is no need for review by a human proctor. Keeping a dedicated person to monitor the test activities would just mean loss of a resource or manpower. Therefore, it is a cost-effective and scalable solution. The proctoring solution also allows the proctor to download each student’s session summary reports in bulk to weed out and review the specific test session which has suspicious activities, as opposed to reviewing all the test sessions.
