Proctoring Process for Exam-Takers

User Guide - Proctoring Process

Below is an explanation of how the remote proctoring process with ExamID and ExamMonitor works:

  1. Prior to the exam, exam-takers takes practice exams to familiarize themselves with the software on their device and how the content works in the software. They also take a self-approved snapshot photo that will act as a baseline image.
  2. On exam day, exam-takers take another photo and proceed to start the exam. (Other than a non-working camera or computer failure, nothing should stop them from entering the exam).
  3. Exam-takers complete the exam offline with audio and video fully recording (plus any standard Examplify security features selected by the institution).
  4. After exam is over, the exam-takers’ fully encrypted answer file is uploaded along with their fully encrypted audio/video file to a secure server.
  5. The audio/video file is run against an A.I. tool that marks (“flags”) the timeline for any potential anomalies.
  6. A virtual, professional human proctor separately reviews the audio/video recording and marks (“flags”) the timeline for any potential anomalies, notating relevant observations.
  7. The audio/video file with timeline markings is then provided to the client institution for review.
  8. The client then has their own human proctors review the snapshot photos to compare any anomalies in identity and make any decision they deem relevant.
  9. The client then has their own human proctors review the audio/video recordings and decide whether any flags, either A.I.- or human-created, is simply an anomaly or something that merits further investigation or action.
