Proctoring exams is the same as invigilating and means ‘to monitor test-takers during their examination’, this is necessary to ensure everything runs smoothly and misconduct is prevented.

Online exams allow the test-taker to complete their examination remotely, without the need to travel to a test centre; online invigilation is monitoring these exams.
At Prctr.com we offer live online proctoring services for your test-takers – one-to-one monitoring via Zoom.

Your candidate will be met in a private Zoom call by their invigilator, who will greet them, explain the rules, and monitor them whilst they are sitting their examination. An exam report and footage will then be uploaded to secure cloud storage for your company.

The proctor is there to meet and greet your test-taker, read the rules and regulations of the examination, record the webcam, screen share and audio files. They will manually monitor the test-taker for the duration of the exam and respond to any issues, such as helping with tech problems and pulling candidates up on any behaviour that is against the rules.

Test-takers are monitored by remote online software and a dedicated invigilator. Exams are recorded via webcam, screen share functionality and audio file, and we can additionally track keystrokes and browser activity.
