Online proctoring or remote invigilation (the terms are interchangeable) is a hot topic at the moment in recruitment, certification and education. This is especially true given the current global context, as assessments and certifications must continue to be administered even though most of the world is on lockdown.
Here are three main benefits of online proctoring for both organizations administering assessments/certifications and test candidates:
1️⃣ Ensures Test Integrity
Creating a secure online testing environment, together with ID verification, increases security and ensures test integrity.
2️⃣ Accessibility and Convenience
Allowing assessments and certifications to be taken wherever and whenever provides greater flexibility for test-takers. Administrators benefit by increasing the number of assessments delivered and candidates going through the process.
Online proctoring removes the burden of test centres, and onsite proctors. Fewer resources - in terms of both finances and manpower - are committed to verifying tests with online proctoring versus live proctoring. Assessments and certifications can be administered with more frequency and are scalable, able to be offered globally.
