TRUMBULL, CT USA — November 26, 2019 — Questionmark, the leading provider of enterprise-grade assessment software and professional services, has announced new proctoring services. These services combine machine learning with automated analytics to supplement existing proctoring solutions.
The technology is designed to increase the integrity of all assessments, for the benefit of both organizations and candidates. Fairness is essential in any organization because it guarantees that everyone has access to the same opportunities and everyone is encouraged to do their best work.
The majority of high-stakes tests continue to rely on human proctors, either on-site or over the internet. As distance learning and distance testing become increasingly popular, remote proctoring can help to maintain standards in assessments. As well as augmenting existing proctoring solutions, it integrates closely with existing services and offers a significant scope for scalability.
Questionmark and Proctorio’s solution features a remote monitoring tool which records candidates and automatically reviews their test for unusual behavior. It uses algorithmic facial detection to identify suspicious actions, both through the device’s camera and the on-screen interaction, and sends the details for review if it detects an anomaly. The video footage can then be reviewed by either the organization, or Questionmark.
Lars Pedersen, CEO at Questionmark, said: “Proctoring Record and Review is the next step in our ongoing goal: to help organizations and individuals to unlock their potential through valid, fair and reliable assessments. Our customers will now have the choice between three different types of proctoring: Proctoring Onsite, Proctoring Online and Proctoring Record and Review.”
John Kleeman, Founder & Executive Director of Questionmark, added: “Proctoring Record and Review will further reassure customers that Questionmark’s assessment results are valid, reliable, fair and defensible. They deliver real integrity for both learning and compliance tests.”
Mike Olsen, Founder & CEO of Proctorio, said: “Proctorio’s partnership with Questionmark expands their ability to deliver assessments online with integrity. Distance learners and organizations using the platform to earn/administer certifications and credentials can do so at a lower cost compared to using a physical testing center—without sacrificing the integrity of the exam environment.”
