For example: “Be among the first 50 to pass the Certification Exam with a score greater than 90% to win.” The second contest type lets learners who pass a test with a certain score to win the contests. For example: “Get 100% score and win.”

Online remote proctoring has evolved into a secure solution and NetExam has partnered with ProctorU, one of the premier online proctoring services. Founded in 2008, ProctorU has administered nearly 1 million exams for test-takers in 75 countries and works with more than 500 institutions. The company has four facilities across the U.S. and employs over 400 people.
ProctorU has developed a safe and secure environment to manage the proctoring process. Proctors use a three-step approach to authenticate a student’s identity: see the student, see what they’re doing and know who they are. NetExam developers and engineers have worked with ProctorU technical teams to develop an API that lets the Administrator enable remote proctoring in a course, and for the student to click a button and schedule a proctored exam with a proctor from ProctorU.
To activate the feature, Admin selects “Enable Live Remote Proctoring” from the Course Exam Setup page. Once enabled, students see the “Schedule Proctored Exam” button in the student course page. When the student selects Schedule Proctored Exam, they will be directed to the ProctorU site to establish their identity account and to schedule the exam. When the exam is taken, the student will engage with a proctor who will verify their identity and monitor the exam. At the completion of the exam, the student validation is sent to the Administrator.
