Utilize test proctoring to secure your next exam

Understanding the meaning of test proctoring

Test proctoring is the process of monitoring students taking an exam to ensure the integrity of the test-taking process. This can be done through various methods such as live proctoring – where a human proctor monitors the exam in real-time – or through the use of automated online test proctoring software, which uses artificial intelligence to detect and flag suspicious activity during the exam. The goal of online test proctoring is to prevent cheating and ensure that the exam results accurately reflect the knowledge and abilities of the students taking the test. We talk more in-depth about the proctoring software here.

How does Digiexam and our online test proctoring software work?

Before the test:

Before conducting the proctored exam, you can either create a new test with Digiexam software or use a pre-existing template shared by your colleagues. Once the test has been created, you choose the proctoring features that you need for the exam, such as:

  • client lockdown
  • identity verification
  • live monitoring/ proctoring
  • exam session recording.

The usage of features may vary depending on you or your institution’s preferences. With our online test proctoring software you can set up required proctoring features with just a few clicks.

During the test:

The use of online test proctoring software is critical in ensuring the integrity of the exam process. During the test, the Digiexam software is utilized to first of all verify the student’s identities and to lock the student's devices, which helps prevent cheating. Our test proctoring software also monitors the student's screen and webcam live in real-time, flagging any suspicious behavior to be reviewed later in the credibility report. If a live proctor is present, the AI will notify them and bring the specific student's screen and webcam to their view for closer inspection. 

After the test:

It's time to evaluate the results. Our software can assist the examinator in reviewing the credibility report to identify any potential instances of cheating. The next step is to grade each student or question. This can be done automatically, ensuring anonymity for each student. Furthermore, the ability to co-grade with colleagues in one place can help to streamline the grading process and make it more efficient.

Finally, the results can be published either back to the Learning Management System (LMS) or directly in the Digiexam platform. This makes it easy to access the results and provide feedback to students.

Can a test proctor see your screen?

It depends. Live proctors may view your screen in real-time via remote software, while automated proctoring analyzes computer activity.

Can you cheat on a proctored exam?

Proctoring is meant to deter cheating, but it's possible. Cheating methods include cheat sheets, collaboration, electronics, impersonation. Proctoring methods like remote proctoring, biometric authentication aim to prevent cheating.

Do proctored exams record you?

Recording during a proctored exam depends on the method. Live proctoring typically records audio, webcam, & screen. Automated proctoring also uses camera & microphone. Institutions may use the recording for review or investigation. Students should be informed.
