I have been hearing a lot about remote proctoring recently. Why is it so important?
Proctoring service prevents cheating during online-exams and proofs integrity of students and their results.
Can a student pay for proctoring by himself/herself?
Not yet. We are working on this and hope that students will have such an opportunity soon.
How is a student identified by Examus?
We use several types of identification:
a) First identification by proctor – proctor checks student's ID and compares ID photo with image received via web cam from student's laptop.
b) Dynamic identification during exam – automatic monitoring that the face has not changed during whole exam.
c) Ex-post identification – the system records student's video and a photo of his/her ID. Afterwards, our proctors or customers' proctors compare these images.
What software and equipment does Examus need?
Test-takers don't need any special devices, but just a standart laptop or PC ( not a tablet) with frontal or external webcam and microphone. Of course, they need to have an access to the Internet.
