Usually, the proctoring system tracks only the image from the student's webcam and desktop. Sometimes sneaky students try to use the limited viewing angle of the webcam. They stick cheat sheets directly to the screen or keyboard, put a tablet or smartphone on the keyboard.
With a proctor, it is nearly impossible to do this unnoticeably, but with automatic proctoring, it is much easier.
Therefore, Examus has developed a new feature – "Smartphone as a second camera". According to the new rules, a student enters the Examus system on a smartphone using a QR code or a direct link, and then places the smartphone on the stand so that the computer screen and the student's desktop are clearly visible from the camera of the mobile device.
This system reduces the possibility of using cheat sheets or additional devices to almost zero. It is important this feature does not require additional costs from students or customers, since today almost every user has smartphones, and all data is stored on the customer's server or cloud.
Thus, Examus is constantly working to ensure the academic integrity for your online exams.
