Proxy testing … Cheating …. Content theft. Does the battle ever end? The techniques and technologies being used to compromise the integrity of your test programs are complex and continually evolving. Many organisations are increasingly turning to online proctoring solutions.
Research shows that when properly applied, online proctoring can be as or more effective than traditional test centre proctoring. Besides reducing security risks, it provides test takers the convenience of taking tests from their homes, workplaces or colleges. It also reduces costs not only for administrators but also for test takers. Consider for a moment the testing fees, travel, parking, and the simple time away from work or studies. In addition to online proctoring’s effectiveness one of the most exciting things is that this approach has the potential to grow as technology becomes more advanced and widespread.
Before implementing online proctoring, organisations should approach with caution, not all online proctoring services are equivalent. While some are designed with high-stakes tests in mind others can actually increase the risk of cheating. So what do you need to consider? What should you be wary of?
