Learn what is image/video proctoring and what is expected from the candidate
Image Proctoring is a method of capturing the candidate's images when they appear for an online proctored test. The candidate's system is used to capture images at periodic intervals. These captured images are then sent to the test administrator to ensure that no unfair means are used during the test attempt. Depending on the settings chosen by your test administrator, your test may be terminated due to image violations.
Image proctoring will also prevent any pseudo-test attempt. A base profile image is captured that acts as the master image, this master image is matched with all the subsequent images.
To attempt an image-proctored test, ensure your system has a functioning webcam. We recommend you mock-run the camera before the actual test begins to avoid any issues that you might face during the test.
Video Proctoring will capture the entire video of the candidate when they appear for an online proctored test. Video is captured for each test section and shared with the test administrator to ensure no unfair means are used during the test attempt. We recommend that you use a functional webcam to avoid any issues. Attempt the test in a well-lit room with sufficient lighting.
Window violation is a feature that helps to detect any movement of the candidate outside their test window. In short, if the candidate tries to source answers from the web engines, chat windows, or any external web help, the system will give a warning message saying it is not allowed. Depending on the settings chosen by your test administrator, your test may be terminated due to window violations if it exceeds the permissible limit.
Your test invitation email will almost certainly include proctored tests. However, your test administrator may, at times, not mention it. We suggest you attempt the test on a system with a functional webcam to avoid any issues.
