What is Proctoring?
Proctoring is a way to maintain the integrity of an assessment, and to ensure the identity of the person taking the assessment. When you take an exam or a test in person, the supervisor is the proctor and oversees the assessment process.
Online proctoring through Testgrid means there will be a proctor who will supervise you during the online assessment via your webcam.
Why does my assessment have a proctor?
There are many reasons why an organisation may choose to have the assessment proctored, including:
- To maintain the integrity of the assessment
- To ensure the identity of the test-taker
- To ensure that all test-takers are completing the assessment under similar conditions
- To enable the test-taker to sit a test at a time and place of their choosing instead of travelling to an assessment centre
