Webcam Surveillance improves Exam Security by enabling you to learn about who the participant really is and in what kind of environment he / she takes the exam (whether they are alone). Camera Surveillance is needed especially if participants are going to take the exam in an uncontrolled environment.
Webcam Surveillance works with 2 different options:
- Taking pictures during the exam: 3 pictures per minute are taken.
- Recording video during the exam: The user’s videos are recorded as one minute clips during the exam.
In Photo and Video surveillance methods, the user must have a Webcam to start the exam and the Exam System must allow access to the Webcam. The required permissions are automatically requested by the Exam System.
Photos and videos recorded during the exam can be viewed simultaneously (live) or at the end of the exam.
You can specify which surveillance method to take the exam with, on the Exam Settings page of the relevant exam in the Task Editor.
