Provides several products that allow for an enhanced and secure testing environment
Camera and bio-metric device that plugs into the student's computer and takes a 360 video of testing environment. Bio-metric scanner is meant to insure that only the student registered for the device is able to take the exam. Recordings are stored on the Software Secure website and can be reviewed at a later date.
Secure Browser (http://www.softwaresecure.com/US/Collateral%20PDFs/Securexam%20Browser%20Solution%20Overview.pdf)
A special browser that the student downloads and installs on their machine which locks down the computer and allows access to a secure browser that disables most computer services as soon as the exam begins. While this solution does not record images or sound from surrounding environment, is does disable access to programs on the system as well as copy and paste and screen capture programs. Looks like it can work with Sakai. Can be used alone or as part of the Secure Remote Proctor Suite.
Other institutions using Software Secure
Live proctor based solution that allows for a web based testing environment. Students are able to take a proctored test as long as they have the following:
Proctors are certified
Services include behavior alerts, live video monitoring, secure authentication, secure delivery on home computer, 24/7 session reviews.
Note: University of Florida reports that Kryterion software was unable to work with their instance of Sakai.
Proctor U is a web based live proctoring solution where students set up an appointment with an online proctor who then authenticates the student's identity. Software is installed that shares the screen with the proctor (must have administrative access so cannot be done on public computers). Proctor monitors both the webcam as well as student's screen throughout the test.
