When the student inserts the correct Proctor Key, they system will direct the student to the exam. In the event the student does not enter the correct Key information, the student will need to contact the administrator or instructor for the proper key.
As more courses turn to online education as a viable certification platform, maintaining testing integrity is critical to the success of a certification program.
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.

When the exam is graded the score will depend on the weight of questions
example Assume Q1 - weight = 2 Q2 - weight = 3 Q3 - weight = 4 Q4 - weight = 1 Q5 - weight = 5 Let's assume student got these 5 questions in a exams got Q1, Q2, Q3 correct and Q4 and Q5 wrong So the score should be (sum of weights of all question the student got right) * 100 / (sum of weights of all question the student got in exam)
Ex (2+3+4)X100/(2+3+4+1+5) = 9 X 100 / 15 = 60%
