The candidate’s report will contain 4 important things:

  1. Summary- Gives basic information of candidate, details of the test taken, score, time is taken, violation details (Window & Image), and the candidate feedback. You can see how the candidate has rated the test and the test experience. Besides this, it will also showcase Score Analysis, Section Score Analysis, and Section Skill Analysis. Another important aspect is the Candidate Hiring Status. Based on the report, you can mark a candidate as Rejected, Shortlisted, On Hold, and so on. These statuses can be customized; you can read more about them here.


2. Questions- Here, you can view question wise analysis of the candidate’s response & performance with violation details.


You can analyze the following data of every question:

  • Status shows whether the answer was attempted or skipped.
  • Points allotted to question
  • Score of candidate
  • Candidate's answer to the question
  • Time Taken to answer the question
  • Average Time spent on that question in the test
  • Window violation shows how many times the candidate opened another window while attempting the test.
  • Time Violation shows how much time the candidate was outside the test window.

Note: iMocha enables you to compare Time Taken by candidate to attempt a question with the Average Time taken by all candidates to complete that question, to understand the speed of the candidate under evaluation. 

Besides the above, you can also filter by Question Type, Question Status, and Section.

Note: If the candidate has given a wrong answer, you will not see the correct answers to the questions.

3. Proctoring details- Here, you can view the number of times the candidate has engaged in window and time violation. This will also showcase the images captured during the test and highlight any violated images. (Note: Image Proctoring has to be enabled to view the images in the report)

4. Audit Log - The candidate hiring status can be changed by stakeholders who have a right to view & edit reports. Through Audit Log, you can view the list of users who have modified the status.
