Further still, they might be asked to type a short phrase so that their keystrokes are analyzed and compared to previous samples. In other cases, a password known only by the proctor is used to begin the test. It makes it possible for the proctor to gain control of the student's computer to enter the password.

Our proctor will be able to observe the student’s eye movements or other behaviors that amount to signs of cheating. While using our automated proctoring service, the software may flag the student's behavior and could indicate fraud. These instances are then reviewed by the faculty later. Also, a student can take the exam wherever they choose, be it in a residence apartment or hall. Further still, the student has a choice to decide when to take the test.
