Proctoring involves ensuring test takers don't cheat on tests. With online tests, this is a challenge. You
need to get on a video call with the test taker, and monitor them. This is complicated, especially if there are many
AutoProctor automates this for you by performing all the monitoring and then producing a report of possible
during the test.
1.2. How does AutoProctor monitor the test taker?
Before the test taker starts the test, AutoProctor gains access to their camera, mic, the screen they are
on, etc. So,
for example, if the test taker invites a friend to help them with the test, or gets audio clues, or opens Google or
ChatGPT, AutoProctor gets notified.
AutoProctor calls these events violations. When the test taker finishes the test, AutoProctor
report factoring in all these violations.
1.3. What else does AutoProctor track?
In addition to the above, AutoProctor can take random photos throughout the test, force the test to happen
screen, etc. If you use
within AutoProctor, you can disable copy-pasting
automatically submit the quiz if the tab is switched 'n' times, etc.
For a full list of what AutoProctor can track,
1.4. What does the AutoProctor report contain?
You can see a sample report
As you can see from the report,
AutoProctor shows what violation occurred, at what time and for how long. It also shows recorded evidence for that
For example, if the test taker switched to a different tab or application, you can see a screenshot of what they
Also, the report shows a Trust Score. This is a score between 0% and 100%, which is calculated based on the
and duration of the violations. The lower the trust score, the more likely AutoProctor thinks the test taker cheated on
1.5. What is the minimum Trust Score a test taker must have?
This is very important to remember! Please do not base important exam and scoring
decisions on the Trust Score automatically. The Trust Score is only a guide. It is not a 100% accurate measure as there
could be lots of false positives. For example, if the test taker's room gets dark, AutoProctor won't be able to detect
their face and think they are cheating.
So, we always recommend that you actually review the evidence and decide if the test taker cheated or not. The
image and audio files can prove very useful.
1.6. Why should I use AutoProctor if I can't even trust the Trust Score!
We understand how much easier your lives can be if you could rely on the Trust Score 100%.
But, automated solutions can only go so far. AutoProctor automates the monitoring. But, the decision-making should still
be done by you.
Also, it is important to remember that, when test takers know that they are being monitored, they are much less
likely to cheat.
Teachers have actually told us that their classroom averages have reduced after they started using AutoProctor ;) So,
trust us, AutoProctor
works. We just recommend that you don't base important decisions on the Trust Score directly. Review the evidence!
