Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs)

Usually, an online proctored exam requires test-takers to show the four walls of their room as the first anti-cheating measure. Identity authentication, testing of device audio and camera, screen sharing and ensuring the absence of additional devices in the room are the measures that follow. During the test, an ideal proctoring software monitors the test-takers' screen activity, locks down web browsers and enables flagging of suspicious activities to prevent malpractices.

Proctored exams are online time-bound evaluations conducted for a range of academic and recruitment purposes. These exams are hosted on secure exam platforms that use the test-takers' webcam and audio to capture screen activity and prevent cheating. The recorded activity is also shared with human invigilators and examiners who can review and evaluate the answer sheets once the candidates complete and submit the tests.

Top 10 benefits of online proctored exams include:

  • Unbiased evaluations
  • Constant and error-free invigilation
  • Better time management
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Scalability to host exams in multiple geographic locations simultaneously
  • Possibility to allow many candidates (even in remote locations) to take the exam on the same day
  • Ease of administration and evaluation
  • Better coordination and customization options
  • Adaptability to multiple question types and exam formats
  • Around the clock exam scheduling features

The various types of proctored exams utilize AI (Artificial Intelligence) to ensure cheating prevention. The three main types of proctored exams are:

  • Live online proctoring with a human invigilator monitoring candidates' screens in real time.
  • Recorded online proctoring with AI monitoring, later reviewed by human proctors.
  • Advanced online proctoring without any human intervention, where advanced AI monitors and flags suspicious activities to score candidate integrity.

Online proctored exams can encounter technical problems owing to power cuts, computer malfunction, internet instability or other technical challenges. However, if you choose a reliable platform and proctoring service provider, its customer support team should be able to resolve the said issues promptly and reduce the impact of the challenges. It is essential to overcome the said challenges to preserve the integrity of the exam.

Online proctored exams work by monitoring test-takers' screens. The test takers must switch on their video and audio and verify their identity. They cannot start the exam before validating their ID. After the approval, the remote proctored exam begins, and an AI or a human proctor monitors the exam from start to finish. During the test, an ideal proctoring software monitors the test-takers' screen activity, locks down web browsers and enables flagging of suspicious activities to prevent malpractices.

The best practices of conducting online proctored tests include the following.

  • Choose a safe online proctored exam platform
  • Test the functionality of your system
  • Ease students into the system
  • Set clear guidelines
  • Maintain data privacy

To ensure successful online proctored tests, it is important to avoid the following mistakes.

  • Not offering technical support and live chat/call options to test takers
  • Not sharing guidelines and clear expectations with test takers in advance
  • Running the test without any trials or training
  • Relying on an outdated audit process
  • Setting excessively complex question papers

A proctored exam utilizes AI technology to monitor the test-takers' screen activities. Alternatively, it involves online invigilation with a human invigilator remotely supervising the test. Contrarily, a non-proctored exam is unsupervised and allows test takers to complete it at their chosen time and pace. Proctored exams ensure greater reliability and fairness in the test-taking and evaluation process when compared to non-proctored exams.

A prerequisite for any online proctored exam is for the test-taker to switch on their video and audio and verify their identity. After a proper 3-point identity verification, or biometric authentication, a test-taker is allowed to start the exam. Post that, an AI or a human proctor monitors the exam from start to finish. They are swift at spotting discrepancies in the process and eliminate any form of unfair activity like cheating.

Online auto proctoring is a proctoring technique which is automated by AI (Artificial Intelligence) to prevent, detect and gather evidence of any unwanted activity during an online exam.

Exam monitoring, also known as remote invigilation, is a process in which exam takers are proctor-monitored from their chosen place. An online exam monitoring system takes place in real-time, and proctors intervene upon observing anything suspicious.
