Educational technology and proctoring leader, Proctorio, processed over 17,000 exams on Friday, December 14th–to date, the largest daily volume of exams proctored by any provider in the industry.
Based on reports by the two leading live-proctoring solutions (human-based proctoring services that rely on an 8-to-1 student to proctor ratio and 48 hour advanced scheduling), Proctorio demonstrates market dominance when it comes to scalability by exam volume–serving over 1 million exams in the 2018 Fall Semester without advance scheduling requirements and instantaneous results.
Mike Olsen, Founder & CEO of Proctorio, stated, “Proctorio was engineered to ensure that as institutions increase usage, proctoring programs can grow–both in terms of number of students and number of assessments–without runaway costs. By adding proctoring to more assessments than just a midterm & final, an academic integrity program can be built to guard all exams–no matter the stakes. To do this, Proctorio needed to build a platform that leveraged technology in a way that was so scalable, it could handle considerable exam volume, while at the same time maintaining cost efficiency & predictability–never possible with traditional live proctoring.”
As more institutions move to delivering assessments online, maintaining academic integrity presents a technical challenge for remote proctoring solutions.
Yvette Arriaga, Director of Engineering, stated, “It takes an average of 6 seconds for test-takers to enter an exam proctored by Proctorio. You can imagine how resilient our infrastructure has to be when thousands of test-takers are accessing their final exams at the same time. During the company’s six years in operation, we are proud to report less than 8 minutes of downtime–meaning in terms of reliability, Proctorio ranks among the top performers with respect to the entire cloud service industry–much less edtech.”
