The pandemic saw mass adoption of Remote Proctoring by universities and organization alike to take assessments from remote locations while ensuring the integrity of the exam. While Remote Proctoring as a concept launched way back in 2007, technologies and growth around it have evolved over time. In many ways, it came of age during the pandemic in terms of its span & scope. It was imperative for educational institutes, universities and organizations to jump in and adapt to a scalable, time and cost-effective solution for their examinations and assessments.
However, with the pandemic on the decline and the world going back to old ways of functioning, we are seeing high-stake exams going back to offline testing, even as mid or low stake exams continue to remain online. Are these early trends OR is there more to it? Remote Proctoring is at an interesting crossroad and needs to hear from key thought leaders and influencers in this space. With such a shift in paradigm, some questions still remain unanswered...
- Will remote proctoring continue to grow and replace brick and mortar test centers?
- Or would we see the divide getting more prominent between High-stakes and Low-stakes for their preferred Proctoring mediums
- Would we see the emergence of a balanced hybrid between Physical & Remote Proctoring?
- What can be the role of AI in remote proctoring? Is it better or worse for secure testing?
- How will Remote Proctoring respond to the ongoing debates, litigations and regulatory concerns?
- Most importantly, what will it mean for the candidate experience? Intrusive, biased and intimidating? Or convenient, effective and seamless?
