What is online exam proctoring?

Proctored exams are assessments that are supervised by a proctor, someone appointed by an organisation to ensure the exam follows regulation. If delivered face to face, proctored exams are conducted in an invigilated exam hall, where the proctor makes sure proper conduct is maintained in-person. Online proctored exams are a digital version of an invigilated exam hall. During online proctored exams, students are monitored using a proctoring software, ensuring exam integrity is upheld.

What is proctoring software?

Just like an in-person proctor, online proctoring software allows you to check whether exam regulations are followed by candidates. Candidate behaviour can be monitored using a webcam, microphone and screen recording.  The proctoring software flags suspected behaviour for review by a human.

What are the benefits of online proctoring?

Online proctoring has many benefits for both candidates and institutions. Specifically, online proctoring is:



Unlike in-person proctoring, online proctoring involves continuous monitoring of exams on an individual basis. Everything is recorded and captured, so misconduct is much less likely to go unnoticed. 



Online proctoring allows organisations to invigilate at scale. Record and review proctoring means you decide when and what to review, removing the need to have people at a certain location and time to fit an exam schedule.



Online invigilation is much more flexible than traditional proctoring. Exams can be taken and invigilated from anywhere and at any time during the assessment window.


Less costly

Online proctoring saves organisations money and resources. The administrative burden and logistical costs involved is greatly reduced when proctoring is conducted online.

What are the types of online proctoring?

Online proctoring can be divided into two groups:


Record and review proctoring

Record and review proctoring is an efficient way for a proctor to review candidate behaviour after an assessment. In automated proctoring, the proctoring software records the student via webcam, microphone, and screen capture and flags suspicious behaviour in the recordings for review at a later date. The invigilator can then decide to review the whole recording or just the flagged parts and take further action if needed.


Live proctoring

With live proctoring, a proctor watches a candidate in real-time as they take their exam. The proctor sees multiple candidates at the same time via their webcam and can intervene if required. A recording of the session is also created so that it can be reviewed post-exam.
