What is proctoring software?

Understanding what a proctoring software is

Proctoring software refers to computer programs or systems that are used to monitor and supervise students during an online exam. The software is typically used to prevent cheating by recording the student's screen, audio, and webcam, and flagging any suspicious activity. Proctoring software can also be used to verify the identity of the student taking the exam and to ensure that the student is in a secure location during the exam.

How does proctoring software work?

Learn how the Digiexam platform supports your examinations

Proctoring software plays an important role in monitoring online exams and ensuring academic integrity. The job of proctoring software is to make sure that test-takers are who they say they are and that they're taking the exam in a fair and honest way. Here's how it works:
  • Before the Exam: First, before the exam starts, the instructor or administrator sets up the proctoring software and lays out the exam rules. These rules might include things like no internet access, no screen sharing, and no external devices. 
  • Identity Verification: Next up, Digiexam verifies the test-takers identity, matching high-resolution face photos, identification cards or passports against the student’s profile in the proctoring view.
  • Exam Monitoring: Once the identity is confirmed and the examination has begun, the proctoring software gets to work using video, screen, and audio recording to monitor the test-takers activity throughout the exam. The Digiexam proctoring software uses AI to pick up on strange behavior, like multiple faces, unusual head movements, or weird sounds.
  • Suspicious activity detection: If anything suspicious pops up, like if the test-taker looks away from the screen or tries to use an external device, the proctoring software will alert the proctor or exam administrator, and mark it down in the recording. They can then review the recording and take action if necessary, like disqualifying the test-taker or launching an investigation.
  • Post-exam review: Finally, after the exam is over, the software generates a report that summarizes the exam activity and any alerts that were generated. The proctor or exam administrator can review this report to identify any issues or concerns.

Features of the Digiexam remote proctoring software

The remote proctoring software is an integrated part of the Digiexam platform where all the features are fully optional and configurable.

ID verification

Verify the identity of each student before the exam begins. Match high-resolution face photos or identification card/passport against the student’s profile in the proctoring view. 

Automated proctoring

The Digiexam online proctoring software solution records each student’s activity in a session and provides automatic notifications about suspicious activity from the behavioral trackers.

In-person proctoring

During the exam, the student’s screen, microphone, and web camera are all available in the proctoring view, allowing the proctor to monitor the students in real-time. Supports up to 30 students being proctored simultaneously.

Open chat

Chat with students during the exam by text or video/microphone to approve requests for a break or similar. The chat will log all flagged events.

Credibility report

In addition to the main session report, you can also download a separate credibility report including the student’s profile and photo, session card, distribution of events, and an average rating of the exam.
