Remote proctoring refers to remotely supervising the exam with live video streaming and online monitoring software to ensure integrity and authenticity. Remote proctoring needs high-speed internet connectivity and the latest technology to enable smooth functioning.
With the evolving technology, this proctoring eliminates the conventional exam method, which compromises colossal time and energy to design the schedule, supervise, assess copies, and declare the result. The innovative e-learning technology facilitates the students to give exams in a convenient environment while the teachers can conduct the exams in groups from anywhere. Thanks to such technology, geography is not a constraint anymore.
There are three remote proctoring techniques— Recorded proctoring, where the AI system automatically records the student exam session, and there is no teacher involvement. Live proctoring, where the teacher is present via live video and the exam session is monitored live. Automated advanced proctoring, is the third technique where an AI-enabled automated system monitors the student’s exams. It offers 95% accuracy by preventing suspicious activities.
For example, apart from being indispensable for schools and universities to conduct exams online, the remote proctoring software also ensures the transparency that tracks the student’s exam activity using their computer screens, recording every detail, and AI (artificial intelligence) analyzing their activity.
