What does term Proctoring mean ?

Proctoring is a way to watch over people when they take exams to make sure they’re not cheating. It can be done in person by a teacher or online using cameras and special software to monitor them during the test. This helps maintain the honesty of the testing process and ensures that everyone has a fair chance.

How does Proctoring work?

Camera Access:

  • Test-takers are required to use their computer’s webcam and microphone during the online exam.
  • The camera provides a live video feed of the test-taker, allowing the proctor or AI system to see and hear them during the entire test.

AI-Based Cheating Detection:

  • Artificial intelligence (AI) technology is employed to monitor the test-taker’s actions and the exam environment in real-time.
  • AI algorithms are trained to detect behaviors or activities that may indicate cheating. These behaviors may include:
  • Suspicious eye movements, such as looking off-screen or constantly glancing at other objects.
  • Unusual background noise or conversations.
  • Multiple faces or people in the camera frame, suggest that someone else is present in the room.
  • The use of external devices or materials not allowed in the exam.
  • Unusual mouse or keyboard activity that could indicate copying or pasting answers.
  • Intervention and Alerts:
  • If the AI system detects any of these suspicious behaviors or activities, it can trigger alerts for further action.
  • A human proctor or the institution’s monitoring team may be alerted to review the situation.
  • The proctor or monitoring team can then decide whether to intervene, warn the test-taker, or take appropriate action according to the exam’s rules and policies.

The combination of camera access and AI-based cheating detection aims to ensure the integrity and security of online exams by closely monitoring test-takers and detecting any potential attempts to cheat. This method provides a balance between maintaining test security and respecting the privacy of test-takers.

21. What is the difference between Video based and Image based proctoring ?

Video-based and image-based proctoring are both methods used to monitor and ensure the integrity of online exams or assessments, but they differ in how they capture and analyze data. Here are the key differences between the two:

Video-Based Proctoring:

1. Continuous Monitoring: Video-based proctoring involves recording the entire test-taking session, which includes both audio and video of the candidate. The proctor can watch the live feed in real-time or review the recording afterward.

2. Behavior Analysis: It not only captures the test-taker’s actions but also analyzes their behavior and movements during the exam. This may include tracking eye movements, head gestures, or any suspicious activity.

3. Communication with Proctor: Test-takers can often communicate with a live proctor via chat or voice if they encounter technical issues or need assistance.

4. Human Intervention: Video-based proctoring usually involves a human proctor who can intervene if suspicious behavior or violations of test rules are observed.

Image-Based Proctoring:
  1. Periodic Screenshots: Image-based proctoring captures screenshots at intervals during the test. It does not provide a continuous video feed.
  2. No Live Video: Unlike video-based proctoring, image-based proctoring doesn’t record continuous video or audio. It focuses on capturing still images.
  3. Behavior Assessment: Image-based proctoring relies on analyzing these periodic screenshots to detect any suspicious activities, such as looking at unauthorized materials or leaving the test environment.
  4. Less Intrusive: Image-based proctoring can be less intrusive, as it does not involve constant video recording or live interaction with a proctor.

In summary, the main difference is that video-based proctoring provides continuous video and audio monitoring, including live interaction with a proctor, while image-based proctoring captures periodic screenshots and relies on analyzing these images to detect any irregularities. The choice between these methods depends on the level of security and monitoring required for a particular online exam or assessment. Video-based proctoring offers more real-time monitoring but can be more intrusive, while image-based proctoring may be less intrusive but provides less continuous oversight.

22. What all events(UFM) is captured by BlinkExam ?

BlinkExam offers both Image-based and Video-based Proctoring, enhancing security with features such as Candidate Photo Capture, Face Recognition, 360° Room View, Live and Recorded Monitoring, Noise Detection, Object Detection, Multiple Face Detection, and Not Present on Screen detection.

  8. Package-related: It’s possible that your package subscription has expired; you can check this on the dashboard.
  9. User Support: If you’ve tried all of the above and are still facing issues, contact the platform’s support or administrator for assistance.

25. Why my candidate can not start the exam ?

If a candidate is unable to start an exam, several factors may be contributing to the issue. Here are some common reasons why a candidate cannot start an exam:

  1. Timing: Check if the exam start time has not yet arrived. Some exams can only be started during specific time windows.
  2. Expired Access: If the candidate’s access to the exam has expired, they won’t be able to start it. Ensure that the exam’s access period is still valid.

  5. Incomplete Registration: If the candidate has not completed the registration process or provided required information, they may be prevented from starting the exam.
  6. Browser Compatibility: Verify that the browser and device being used are compatible with the exam platform. Some exams may require specific browser settings or plugins.
  7. Exam Lock: Some exams have a locking feature that prevents candidates from starting until the administrator or proctor releases the exam.
  8. Network Firewall or Security Settings: Network or firewall settings could block access to the exam platform. Ensure that any security software or network configurations do not interfere with exam access.
  9. System Downtime: If the exam platform is undergoing maintenance or is temporarily down, candidates won’t be able to start the exam. Check for any announcements about platform status.
  10. Exam Availability: Confirm that the exam is available and not canceled or rescheduled. If the exam has been postponed, candidates may need to be informed of the new date and time.
  11. Package:- The package of a candidate may be expired.

To resolve the issue, it’s crucial to investigate the specific cause. Communicate with the candidate to understand their experience and any error messages they encounter. If the problem persists, reach out to the exam administrator or support team for assistance in diagnosing and resolving the issue.
