Systems that enable assessment applications to be performed remotely are called remote proctoring. Many institutions and cooperations currently utilize them as they provide many efficient solutions in terms of location, time, and cost.
Corporations and educational institutions resort to various practices while making assessments of the people within their organization. They can be performed verbally or with paper and pen. Today, face-to-face applications are replaced by digital examinations due to the widespread use of distance education systems and worldwide companies. In this case, remote proctoring is used in the assessment of the test-takers. It is a system that enables the evaluation of whether a test taken in a digital environment is performed without cheating or not. This system, which is of great importance in revealing insecurity in such applications carried out at a distance, have many different applicable ways.
Remote proctoring, which is used as an internet-based service, enables institutions to take control in various remote assessment applications. In addition, it helps to get correct and fair results for all participants. Moreover, it creates an opportunity in order to reduce costs for both participants and institutions.
As a common approach in remote proctoring services, test-takers install a software on their computers or a browser extension. As soon as the assessment application starts, this software automatically gains access to the students’ computers and cameras. In the first stage, the participant must enter their credentials, enter a password, or verify their identity as requested by the institution. In terms of protection of security standards, a remote proctoring software may restrict students’ access to the internet browser. During the exam, the camera starts recording and actively analyzes the displayed data. In some systems, a real person can act as the proctor, and in some, the software acts as a proctor -it depends on the choice of the institutions. Eye-tracking and the control of various movements that indicate cheating can be directly followed by the software itself. If there is a detection of cheating, the system automatically marks the test-taker, and the institutions are able to review the recordings in any time.
Remote proctoring systems basically aim to provide reliable evaluation applications at a low cost. In traditional assessment practices, participants must go to a specific test center, fill in the exam papers delivered to them, and it must be followed by a proctor at these test centers. These applications naturally have a certain cost for numerous aspects, while there is only one cost in remote proctoring systems. This cost depends on the requested system requirements and participant volume. All in all, it provides a great cost advantage compared to traditional evaluation applications with a great support of technological development. In this system, travel and accommodation expenses are eliminated for people living in a city other than the city where the assessment will be carried out. There is also no cost of the test center, the cost of the test paper, and the supervisor cost that increases with the number of participants.
