Top Questions from the Webinar

1 . Can there be an assessment for descriptive questions?

Yes. It is also possible to include a feature on the remote exam platform to manually evaluate explanatory and descriptive answers.

2 . Can online exams detect cheating?

Yes. Mercer Mettl offers an array of anti-cheating tools and proctoring solutions to detect malpractices during an online exam. Remote invigilators can also block defaulters during a test if they find them cheating.

3 . What happens if a candidate gets disconnected during an online examination?

There are two ways Mercer Mettl addresses sudden connectivity issues during an online exam. Educators can choose a duration during which a candidate can rejoin the exam when disconnected. Alternatively, they can ask the candidate for a re-authorization.

4 . What is online proctoring?

Online proctoring allows remote invigilation during an online exam that can be entirely AI-driven or a combination of AI and human monitoring. Online proctoring solutions include live proctoring backed by webcam feed, IP range-setting, real-time screen feed, and several anti-cheating features. Auto proctoring is also possible using AI-based flags for impersonation, detecting the use of external devices, detecting additional voices/presence in the room, spotting candidate distraction, etc.

5 . Can online proctors see your screen?

Yes. Online proctors can choose to access a test-taker’s live screen feed. They also have the option to view a recorded view of the candidate’s screen activity. In either case, the candidate is usually notified before they start taking a test.
