Proctoring and Digital Assessments as part of an institution’s digital strategy According to Inspera Digital Assessment
Online assessment and proctoring are the future, according to Inspera Digital Assessment, whose platform is revolutionizing digital assessments making online tests more secure and less stressful.
Inspera Digital Assessment has said that smart proctoring and digital assessments are among the increasingly more reliable and secure test-taking experiences. The company’s digital assessment platform makes it more efficient, for institutions of all sizes to administer in-person, online, or hybrid tests. Historically the exam process and experience have been riddled with less than desirable misconduct behavior, and in-efficiencies in the assessment workflow and some digital exam platforms can cause confusion for students. Test takers would find the user interface challenging and faculty find a broken workflow frustrating, thus, previous exam processes for both would affect their performance. Inspera’s digital online assessment and proctoring solution promise to change that.
Online proctoring is a remote invigilation method used to monitor students' or candidates' online exams, tests, or assessments in a secure and controlled manner. It involves the use of specialized software that the test-takers' activities, movements, and behaviors through their webcam, microphone, and screen sharing. Depending on its features, the software may also include identity verification, browser lockdown capabilities, and automated flagging of suspicious behavior.
There are two versions of proctoring available. AI uses rules for exam delivery and algorithms and behavior data to monitor for integrity incidents which allow invigilators to review recorded flagged test-take sessions and make determinations if further action is needed. Or live human proctoring which allows a remote proctor the ability to monitor test-takers via technology and software in real-time allowing for immediate intervention or action.
Online proctoring is increasingly being used by educational institutions, certification bodies, and employers to ensure the integrity and security of online digital assessments. From an assessment management perspective, it has been found to be more cost-effective, and efficient, and saves both students and faculty time compared to other traditional test-taking methods.
Unlike any other online test platforms, Inspera’s digital assessment and proctoring solution is built with both the test taker and faculty’s experience in mind. It is widely accepted that exams can be stressful so providing an easy-to-use interface that is. simple allows test takers to focus on doing the best work possible instead of trying to navigate a tool or wrap their heads around confusing or buggy software.
