However, the safe atmosphere in which online tests must take place is at the heart of this new reality. As a result, one breakthrough technique has emerged as a result of the administration of online exams: online remote proctoring.
Here are some uses cases:
1. Education institutes looking to conduct Online Entrance Exam for the prospective students can use this technology to conduct online exams across the country while preventing all forms of cheating
2. If an organization wishes to conduct a hiring/employment test for prospective employees, the remote proctored tests can be used to ensure 100% authenticity of the candidate taking the test.
3. A coaching institute can hold national mock exams using a remote proctored mechanism making the students experience the simulated versions of actual examinations.
4. Skill Based Training Organizations that offer final certificate exams can use remote proctoring to conduct their online exams at a low cost and prevent malpractices in the exams.
In a post-pandemic environment, remote proctoring is expected to grow in popularity despite certain teething issues. Many organizations have been pushed by Covid to cross the remote proctoring threshold, learning and improving as they get more acquainted with the technology and how to handle the process. We’re starting to see efficacy studies on parts of remote proctoring, such as grade equivalence and the influence it has on cheating rates. We’re likely to see remote proctoring become the ‘usual’ as the evidence base expands, issues are solved, and happy student tales spread through word of mouth.
