A test or examination (exam) is an assessment intended to measure a person's knowledge, skill, or ability in one specific subject or a variety of topics and in present day are primarily administered on paper or on a computer. This can be done in-person or online.
A proctor is a person who takes charge of, or acts for, another. The word proctor is frequently used to describe someone who oversees an exam. In today's testing environment, a proctor will typically verify a student’s identity by checking a photo ID and then ensures academic integrity guidelines are followed during the exam.
ProctorFree is an automated, exam proctoring solution that requires no human involvement. Providing a scalable, online, on-demand exam proctoring service that can be accessed by test takers at any time allows colleges and universities to offer a truly efficient solution to the problem of proctoring exams on a large scale.
ProctorFree authenticates the student using facial recognition and maintains continuous identity verification throughout the exam. Additionally, we provide a secure browser that is fully customizable to allow student’s flexibility to access certain web pages or applications, provided that is allowed for that particular exam. Throughout the exam ProctorFree also monitors for a variety of events, behaviors, and patterns typically associated with cheating. We call those anomalies.
Once the exam is complete, a detailed and optimized report of the proctor session is emailed to the test administrator (i.e. faculty, administration, etc) for review. For larger classes or volumes of students, the administrator can log into ProctorFree's review dashboard to easily sort and view results. We highlight the specific minute and second where cheating-like behaviors occurred and allow the administrator to determine if the student cheated or not. This information can also be forwarded easily to other members of the administration with the proper privileges.
