Your guide to Remote Proctored Exam –
A remote proctored exam is when students attempt an examination on their own electronic devices from their preferred locations.
The steps to this are as follows –
1) Verifying and authorizing students’ identities online to ensure only the registered students are attempting the exam.
2) Students’ activity during the assessment is then monitored to flag any and every irregular behaviour through remote proctoring, as the major concern of universities and colleges during online exams is cheating. Hence, to ensure fair means and avoid cheating, Learning Spiral combines several essential and popular digital solutions for holding credible online examinations with automated and live violation monitoring. Well-known technologies like AI Proctoring, Remote Candidate Authentication, Record and Review Proctoring, Secure Browsing, Data Encryption during transit, etc., are used by Learning Spiral.
3) Remote proctoring enables students to take an assessment at a remote location while also ensuring the integrity of the exam.
