How to set up Image Proctoring?

Know to set up Image Proctoring to capture real-time images of the candidates when they appear for the test

Image Proctoring is an online invigilation that helps you get the candidate's images when the Test is being attempted. Online proctoring of the candidate is conducted remotely by the system in real time. Live images of the candidate are taken at regular intervals through their system's webcam. The system reports if the candidate has used unfair means to take the Test.

How does Image Proctoring work?

The system captures a base profile image when the candidate starts the test. 

                                 

Using this image as a reference, the system will display the following image violation conditions:

  • No face detected 
    When the camera cannot detect the candidate's face or the candidate covers their face, the system gives an error and highlight the image in the reports. 
  • Multiple faces detected
    The system will raise a flag when two or more faces are detected along with the base image. 
  • Unrecognised face detected
    The system will raise a flag when someone other than the candidate tries to give the test. It compares the base image to detect this violation.

Understanding the Proctoring Test Report

The report contains the following:

  • Color Coded Warning Flags to identify low, medium, and high cheating intensity at first glance.
  • Color Coded Warning icon to indicate the intensity of the number of Window Violations, along with the time duration for each violation.

iMocha’s Image Proctoring solution considers tolerance levels for different types of cheating and raises precise warning flags. The final cheating detection report that comes to your table has eliminated misinterpretations of fraud instances.

Following is the logic behind Color Coded Warning Flags that appear in the Proctoring Details within the Test Reports. 

You can use the above table to understand the specific color of the warning flag that are indicated in the proctoring report. 
The system already adjusts any scope of errors captured during cheating instances so that only a genuine count of violations is considered for decision-making.
