Case studies
Online Master degree programme — Moscow institute of physics and technology

In autumn 2016 one of the most respectable universities in Russia Moscow institute of physics and technology (MIPT) launched online Master degree program «Modern combinatorics». It was an absolutely online course, the first case in Russia. Students have to come to university only once — for a defence of diploma.

MIPT turned to Examus to provide online learners a convenient and cost-effective alternative to testing centers while ensuring the integrity of the online exam. So MIPT has launched a reliable and comfortable distance education offering for adults who work and have a little time for education.

The university believes this program could become the model for online programs of the future.

MOOC-platform — National open education platform

National Open Education Platform (NOEP) is a high-tech educational platform that provides open access to the best online courses of Russian most world renowned universities. There are more than 400 000 people taking courses online through the NOEP. More than 211 open online-courses are available.

Russian universities accept credits for the courses taken through the platform and provide all the successful finalists with certificates and diplomas. That's why reliable proctoring solution was a matter of a crucial importance for the platform.

Examus was chosen as the most flexible, secure and cost-effective solution. It could fit lots of exam scenarios while ensuring the integrity of the results.

As a plus full outsourcing of proctoring service including communications with universities and students allows the NOEP to reduce the burden on technical support and stuff of the platform.

FAQ

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.

What is the difference of Examus from Skype (or other similar products), and from own proctoring systems at University?

What is the difference of Examus from Skype (or other similar products), and from own proctoring systems at University?

Skype and its analogues are not specialized solutions for conducting examinations at educational institutions. These products are designed for a different purpose, without taking into account lots of special things of the process. If you compare our services with Skype — Examus is cheaper due to automation. Its productivity is much higher — we are able to exam 100 students not for 100 hours, but for ONE. In addition, Skype does not allow to monitor the desktop and the image of the webcam simultaneously. One needs additional software to record videos for detailed analysis using Skype. If we are talking about «other systems» — the comparison with each of them should be carried out individually.

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.

Who monitors a student during an exam – a person or a machine?

Automatic system supports human proctor to monitor an exam more effectively. But there are lots of options. Examus can offer over 25 types of proctoring. It depends on your goals and budget.

How many students can human proctor monitor simultaneously?

It depends on customer's requirements. Usually, one proctor monitors about 6-9 students. That's possible thankful to cyber-proctor (AI & ML algorithm that analyses student's behavior and identifies main ways of cheating) support.
