Proctorio is one of the partners of Ans that deliver online proctoring services. By enabling the integration with Prcotorio, the security of the administration of the exam is increased. It collects information that can be used to handle fraud procedures of your institution. With online proctoring, you’re able to administer exams in a more secure way anyplace, anywhere.
Proctorio has no live proctors present during the exam. The software makes sure that you can execute the invigilation of the exam after the administration. This is possible by recording and storing footage of the exam. After the exam, Proctorio creates a gradebook per exam, where the footage can be reviewed. Within the gradebook, suspicious behavior of the student is flagged. For example, visiting other websites will be flagged by the system. Online proctoring secures your exams in three different ways:
- Verification options
Within Proctorio, you can choose to enable the ID verification. By doing this, the student is asked to show their ID-card before the exam starts. After the exam, your institution will be able to check all ID-cards after the exam within the gradebooks.
- Record options
Proctorio offers the possibility to record four aspects. Both video (webcam) and audio (microphone) can be recorded during the exam to check suspicious behaviour. Also, the screen can be captured to check the on-screen activity. Suspicious URLs and activity will be flagged. It’s also possible to require a roomscan from each student before the exam starts.
- Lockdown options
The recording and verification options will collect information on fraudulent behavior of students. Proctorio also has different options to prevent fraud. Some examples of lockdown options are: forcing students to use fullscreen mode of their browser, disabling the option to open other browser tabs and preventing students from downloading anything.
Within Ans, you’re able to set the settings per exam, so you are able to match the security settings with the goal of the exam. For example, open book exams might require other security settings than closed book exams.
