Excessive anxiety is an ever-present hindrance to exam success. In the online examination era, this issue has become more pronounced: some of the test-takers feel uncomfortable taking exams under close scrutiny. However, others may think that the home atmosphere helps to loosen up while testing, as well as being alone without the pressure of a large audience allows them to concentrate.
What is more, some students believe that they may be deliberately underestimated. Unfortunately, teacher’s bias is a factor that can sometimes affect both the exam flow and its results for the examinees. But this cannot happen in online proctored exams. There are only three objective factors in these exams: students, test, and proctor.
Examus team puts special emphasis on proctors’ selection and training to ensure their professional competence and reduce stress for the students. Our specialists have no stake to act in sympathy/antipathy towards students. Objectivity and impartiality are the factors that directly affect the proctors’ reputation, and even their salary. They are constantly monitored by the proctor team managers tracking the work quality.
Our tip #3: Don't worry. Online exams with proctoring often bring even less stress and anxiety than traditional classroom exams.
