Supporting organisations to deliver assessments with integrity
Customers can choose whether to deliver exams proctored or unproctored. Proctoring (or invigilation) increases the integrity of tests and exams by making it harder for a test-taker to cheat or to copy the exam questions to pass onto others.
Proctored tests are common in certification and academic exams, where the results contribute to a certificate or qualification.
In workplace exams, employees are often trusted to follow the rules, though proctored tests are commonly used to better ensure integrity.
During the coronavirus crisis, proctoring may be essential in helping both business and academic organisations carry out their core activities.
A range of proctoring services to suit different needs
We provide three types of proctoring services:
Proctoring Record & Review
We provide an automated system that observes and records the exam session on video, for potential review later. The remote proctoring system flags potential anomalies, such as a second person on screen. When the anomaly is flagged, the customer can review or Questionmark can.
Proctoring Record & Review gives customers the flexibility to deliver assessments anywhere, anytime while maintaining exam integrity. Remotely proctored exams are widely used in universities, colleges and workplaces.
We provide an online proctor who supervises a test-taker using the webcam and audio built into the test-taker’s computer. The proctor confirms the test-taker’s identity and can pause or terminate the assessment if they see suspicious behaviour.
Proctoring Online enables assessments to be taken from home or office, removing the need to travel to a test center, without compromising on security. Such proctored tests are widely used in certification programs.
We enable customers to proctor individual test-takers or a group of test-takers in-person and onsite. We provide the tools to start, pause, un-pause and stop tests for an individual or group within a test center and to monitor a group’s progress. Proctoring Onsite helps protect content and reduce cheating, increasing the validity, reliability and defensibility of exams.
