What is a proctored exam?
A proctored exam is an assessment supervised by a proctor or test monitor.

What is an online proctored exam?
An online proctored exam is a timed assessment via an online platform in which the candidates’ activity, webcam video, and audio are monitored. In our case, there is a human proctor that supervises the exam taking place via a webcam to ensure the authenticity of the test taker and prevents them from cheating.

What is a proctor?
A proctor is simply an invigilator whose job is to overlook test takers during examinations for the main purpose of ensuring that they don’t cheat. This is done with the help of a real-time test proctor present online during the duration of the assessment via webcam surveillance.

What is proctoring?
Also known as invigilation, proctoring is the act of supervising candidates during an examination. The purpose of this is to ensure that the exam process is fair and equal for all candidates. When the stakes are high, it’s crucial to guard against cheating, impersonating a candidate, or copying questions to share with others.

How do proctored online exams work?
Online proctored exams are timed exams that are taken online while the proctor monitors the test takers’ computer browser activity, webcam video, and audio during the exam.
But before the test begins, the candidate is required to fill in their details like name, date of birth, age, and gender to ensure their authenticity. The test taker is expected to show ID proof for facial recognition. In the same step, the microphone and webcam are tested to avoid any errors during the assessment.
Once the ID verification has taken place, checks are conducted on the candidates’ exam environments to prevent any cheating from taking place.
The rules of the online proctored exam are explained to the candidates. This typically includes things like no speaking, referring to notes, using other software on a computer or copying down exam content to share with others. Once that is done, then the real assessment can begin.
During the assessment, the candidates are monitored to ensure that they follow the rules.
Each of these steps is designed to ensure that the assessment is completely fair and prevent any test fraud from taking place.
The proctor will authenticate students’ IDs, keep track of time, and watch students to make sure that they are following test guidelines and instructions.
