Smartest Invigilate allows test takers to take an exam from any location, whilst ensuring the integrity of the test. We are not just providers of technology. As a result of managing candidates in physical test centres for over a decade, it is in our DNA to put the test takers first, regardless of where they are taking the test from. To this end, as well as providing you with integrable technology, we will also provide you with ongoing support at every level required to make remote proctoring a successful solution tailored to your needs.

How?

Our Remote Proctoring solutions can be easily integrated into most learning or assessment platforms through APIs. A choice of Proctor modes are available which includes Live Proctor, Record & Review and Auditorium, with the Offline function available, when a stable internet connection cannot be guaranteed.

Why Remote Proctoring?

To give just one example, for universities Remote Proctoring has broadened their global reach by enabling them to offer standardised admission exams easily, affordably and globally.  This means universities are no longer limited to running admission exams exclusively in their respective countries, and having to recruit internationally through other means, thereby compromising the efficacy of their student recruitment efforts because of lack of standardisation.

 

Needless to say, Remote Proctoring (especially Automated Incident Flagging), will greatly simplify your exam scheduling, allowing you to schedule tests year round and to avoid the pressures of concentrating exams into a few sessions in exam halls or dealing with third party test centres.

Live Real-Time Proctoring

In Real-Time Proctoring, an experienced proctor invigilates the candidates’ activities and monitors audio, video and screenshare feeds in real-time. With this option, the proctoring service provider requires an individual to sit in a remote location to monitor students’ activities, ensuring student authentication, and preventing any irregular activity. Proctors can communicate with candidates via a chat box and issue time-stamped flags for reports.

Record & Review

The Record & Review option allows more time flexibility since there is no live proctor involved. The entire test session is recorded with the same streams as in live proctoring and these can be accessed from dashboards and downloaded or requested as necessary. The proctor reviews the recorded test, plays back, fast-forwards (up to 16x speeds), and then flags any dubious activity using time-stamped annotations. This system allows many exams to be conducted simultaneously, unlike live proctoring.

Automated Incident Flagging

Test-takers are monitored by an AI platform, where suspicious behaviours, such as changes in lighting, unusual noises and looking off screen are consistently flagged automatically, so that these can be reviewed afterwards by professionals. Here as well, the audio, video and screenshare feeds of the examinees are recorded during the test.

Offline Modality

The offfline modality integrates easily with the assessment platform and allows a Test Taker to download the test when an internet connection is available, take the test remotely, and upload the exam using only mobile data. 

  

Whichever you choose, we make sure that you and your Test Takers are assisted with logistical and technical support, prior to and during the assessment. 

Auditorium

The auditorium caters for larger volumes of Test Takers sitting an exam at the same time. A team of Proctors will monitor the session and can communicate with each other throughout.
