Top Questions from the Webinar

1 . Do we need to create a question bank in an excel sheet to upload 100 or more MCQs?

Examiners can create their questionnaires in an excel file and bulk upload them on Mercer Mettl’s examination platform.

2 . Is there any provision to upload handwritten solutions onto the platform?

Yes. Candidates can upload up to three files per question, with each file not exceeding 30MB. The Mercer Mettl exam platform supports file types such as doc, .docx, .pdf, .xls, .ppt, .png, .jpg, .txt, .zip, .rar, etc.

3 . What can be done if the candidate says that their camera is not working?

A prerequisite of the exam is that students have to enable proctoring on their devices. They have to accept sharing their screen, video, and audio. If either one of them is not working, then it is at the institute’s discretion whether it would let them take the exam.

4 . How do you ensure students are not using the internet on their computer to get help for the exam?

With the enabling of browsing tolerance, candidates are not allowed to navigate to any other website. We can also define a limit for browsing tolerance. Upon reaching that limit, the candidate's test will be finished automatically. Additionally, we can use MSB (Mettl Secure Browser) to provide the candidate with a lockdown environment. The latter does not allow screen minimization and navigation. The access to search engines and social media accounts is barred inside the MSB, The MSB terminates all browsers and other operating websites upon its launch.

5 . What if someone is helping the student by standing behind their computer?

The AI on Mercer Mettl’s exam platform is trained to pick up 18 dynamic digressions, including a distracted eye movement. Such behavior is flagged as cheating/malpractice and the invigilator is notified immediately.
