Remote proctoring offers a series of advantages over traditional online examination method. Our iTest platform will come equipped with this AI based proctoring solution to ensure the quality and integrity of exams and candidates during remote examination.

The solution is designed to work in low bandwidth environment making it the perfect solution for the current situation,” said Kamal Nath, Chief Executive Officer, Sify Technologies Limited.
With the integration of iTest and Proview, examiners can now benefit from various advanced features:
The AI-enabled online proctoring solution, available in automated mode monitors suspicious activity using advanced video and audio analytics. It ensures the candidate focuses only on the test screen; monitors the light and other factors in the room; checks for suspicious actions & objects and background voice activity; and watches the browser window to detect changes. Adding to the automated module is the Live remote proctored solution that deploys trained resources in conjunction with the automated proctoring to offer a solution that gives an exam body the confidence to deliver exams in a remote manner.
The exam administrator can also monitor the online test from their preferred locations. A detailed log of browser activity and audio-visual responses of the candidate is provided, and the AI sensors disable the candidates’ facility to copy/paste answers. Real-time access restriction ensures the examiner can take action immediately if a candidate is using any fraudulent means. Real-time recording of users’ actions facilitates secure and authentic online tests. The recorded streams can be stored and viewed for up-to six months.
The proctoring solution comes with advanced facial recognition features that ensures that the candidate is the original person taking the exam. Using an advanced algorithm in Machine Learning, it provides a confidence score to help ensure a match, and Two-Factor Authentication process that avoids fraudulent activity by quickly restricting test access.
Along with automated proctoring, facial recognition and live monitoring the solution also provides analytics on user behavior and user actions. It also offers browser patrolling and real-time communication via a ChatBot and configurable alerts to avoid fraudulent activities during tests.
