How To Conduct Online Examination?
The growing need for exams to be shifted on an online platform skyrocketed during the pandemic amid the nationwide lockdown.
Online exams can be conducted at ease with zero hassle by following the below steps
1. Define Question Banks:
Educators can create an online question bank by providing access to students, where they can find question sets for different topics, subjects, and difficulty-level attributes for various questions. It can be useful to define question banks as it would act as a suitable input for defining an exam pattern.
2. Define Subjective Exam Pattern:
By referring to the question bank, the teachers can proceed to define a subjective exam pattern. They can further define the total time for the assessment, marks for each question, question navigation, and the kinds of questions to be included. Also, it would help in defining the question paper pattern for online subjective exams.
3. Assign Exams to Students:
After creation of different sets of question papers, the teachers can define the exam schedule and assign it to a group of candidates as per the exam timetable. Also, different students opting for different courses can log into the portal and appear for the respective online tests.
4. Student Can Appear for Subjective Exam Online:
Learners can appear for online subjective exams as per the set schedule. They can type answers and use special characters wherever required at ease. Also, there is a feature to upload images as part of the answers, which further reduces the time and effort of the students.
5. Educators and Admins Can Log In and Check Answers:
The faculty have separate unique credentials which they can use to login and view answers typed by the candidates. They can do the assessments and assign marks to each answer. The system would then calculate the score accordingly.
By following the above steps, the institute can easily convert the traditional pen and paper-based exams to online digitized and paperless tests.
What is Remote Proctoring and How Does it Work?
Remote proctoring helps students to appear for an exam in a remote location while maintaining the exam’s integrity. An exam proctoring software confirms the student’s identity and tracks every activity of the candidate via a webcam. A video is recorded during the exam which helps to flag any suspicious behavior.
Remote proctoring generally works through three key steps: authentication, real-time monitoring, and data storage & review.
Every test primarily begins with the authentication of the students. In a remotely proctored test, students have to enable their webcam and provide the photocopy of the ID.The system then cross checks the ID details to the student real-life image from the video feed. They have their unique credentials which can be used for logging in as soon as the identity is verified.
As soon as the test begins, an AI-powered software continuously supervises student behavior to flag any suspicious activities. Apart from the audio and video proctoring, online examination can include a large number of different invigilating features such as voice or eye movement, mobile phone detection, browser lockdown, etc.
Data Storage and Review
Remote proctoring in the online examination system ensures that all the video and audio data is recorded and stored on the cloud. Apart from real-time flagging, the examiner can review the data received after the test is finished and resolve some doubtful cases.
