Online Proctored System

Introduction: An Overview of Online Proctoring System

An online proctoring system is a technology-based solution designed to monitor and supervise online exams or assessments remotely. It allows proctors or invigilators to supervise the exam-taking process from a remote location, using a range of monitoring tools such as live video and audio feeds, screen sharing, and AI-based algorithms. Online proctoring systems can help to prevent cheating and maintain academic integrity, particularly in the context of remote or online learning. They provide a secure and reliable way to conduct exams and assessments, while ensuring fairness and integrity in the testing process.

Features of an Online Proctoring System

Ensuring Academic Integrity with Online Proctoring: Top Features to Look For

An online proctoring system offers several features to monitor and supervise online exams and assessments, ensuring academic integrity and fairness in the testing process. The system can provide live video and audio monitoring, allowing proctors to monitor the exam taker in real-time, while screen sharing features enable monitoring of any suspicious activity, such as accessing prohibited applications or websites. Automated monitoring may also be used, using AI-based algorithms to detect suspicious behavior, such as copying or pasting answers or opening multiple tabs.

Identity verification is also an important feature of online proctoring systems, with facial recognition technology or other biometric verification methods used to confirm the identity of the exam taker. Secure browsers may be required during the exam, which restrict access to other applications or websites to prevent cheating. Recording of the exam-taking process is also possible, providing evidence for review in case of any potential violations or issues. Additionally, proctors can intervene in real-time using chat or messaging features to communicate with the exam taker and provide guidance or reminders about exam rules and guidelines.

Overall, online proctoring systems provide a range of features that work together to create a secure and reliable testing environment for online exams, promoting academic integrity and fairness in the assessment process.
