De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Overview of online proctoring solutions

Eduventures published an update on remote exam proctoring, providing an overview of US based online proctoring providers. Roughly the systems can be divided into three catagories:

  1. Fully Automated Solutions: The computer monitors students and determines whether they are cheating.
  2. Record and Review: Sessions are recorded as the computer monitors students. A human can then review the video at any time afterward.
  3. Fully Live: Students are on video and watched remotely by a live proctor.

There seems to be a tendency to move towards fully automated solutions, since it is more cost efficient and the technical solutions become more and more available, like multi factor authentication, eye-tracking and automated cheat detection. There are also systems that integrate into the institutions test delivery system or LMS.

The systems that still use live proctoring (whether it is a live proctor or a review) also use advanced technologies to help the proctor detect cheating.

Eduventures promises to keep covering these systems and providers so the coming months I expect more in depth information on developments in this sector. Interesting!
