ProctorU has launched ProctorU Auto, which the company calls the industry’s most advanced, fully automated artificial intelligence (AI)-based online proctoring solution.
Having previously developed a full suite of online proctoring and identity management solutions for education, professional development and certification organizations, ProctorU created its automated solution to complement the current offering.
ProctorU Auto uses sophisticated technology to verify test-taker identity with multi-factor authentication. Using AI technology, the solution then flags any suspicious behavior in real-time, providing a recorded test session for post-exam review.
With patented, 24/7 on-demand live proctoring and an automated platform using AI, ProctorU increases access to online learning while ensuring exam integrity and accountability for any student using only a computer, webcam and high-speed internet connection.
“ProctorU Auto is the result of listening to client feedback and bringing the best in machine learning technology to an automated online proctoring solution,” said Scott McFarland, ProctorU CEO. “Our AI platform already leads the industry thanks to our experience in proctoring more than 4 million exams. We are proud to bring a new level of innovation to online proctoring allowing our clients to benefit from a full range of proctoring services, all backed by ProctorU’s industry expertise and exceptional service.”
ProctorU Auto is offered in two additional service levels including ProctorU Auto with Professional Review, which provides trained and certified professional proctors to assess flagged behaviors from the testing session and confirm breaches of academic integrity to prevent instructors from performing this function.
The second service option, ProctorU Auto with Live Launch and Professional Review includes student identification verified by a live proctor prior before the start of the testing session and then maintaining the same level of professional review for the recorded session.
ProctorU Auto also provides instructors with the option to observe exam sessions in real-time, as students complete them.
As a result, ProctorU clients have the flexibility to select the best level of proctoring for every online exam they administer.
