Top Questions from the Webinar

1 . How can your system detect if students take pictures of the screen using other devices apart from the one they are already using?

Our AI is capable of detecting other devices, such as a smartphone. Once the students use it to take an image on the computer, it will be flagged by our AI and reflected in their integrity score.

2 . What kinds of devices are supported on the exam platform?

Mercer | Mettl’s Examine supports exams on all devices. a) Low-stakes Exams- Quiz and mid-lesson tests that need low security and can smoothly run on mobile, laptop, desktop, iPad or tablet. b) Medium-stakes Exams- Mid-semester exams need more security and hence require proctoring. It is suggested to take the exam on a laptop or desktop. c) High-stakes Exams- End-semester and competitive exams are high fidelity tests. It is recommended candidates take the test on a laptop or desktop.

3 . Is there an option for auto-grading? What kind of question types can be auto-graded?

Yes. Auto grading is available for MCQs and coding simulators

4 . What happens if students fake network problems to disconnect and cheat on the exam?

In such a scenario, respective institutes and universities can issue a disclaimer about the number of times a student is allowed to log back onto the system. If done repeatedly, the management has the authority to terminate the exam for the concerned student. The test can only be resumed after special permission is obtained from the relevant authority.

5 . How can you identify fraud if someone uses a picture of the candidate to capture the photo?

The 3-point authentication begins with an OTP that the candidates receive on their emails/phones. The process mandates the test-taker to click their live picture using a webcam and furnish ID proof. Our proctors verify the details, thus eliminating any chances of impersonation.
