Kurukshetra, July 21

Kurukshetra University (KU) has decided to conduct remote proctoring of online examinations through a software prepared by an agency.

The Controller of Examinations, Dr Hukam Singh, said, “The examinations of distance education and private candidates will start from July 22. On the recommendation of the university’s standing committee, the exams will be conducted in a blended mode (offline/online). However, this time remote proctoring will be done to prevent cheating. A portal has been prepared and a tender has been allotted to a firm for the remote proctoring of online examinations. Around 10,000 students will take exams. Arrangements have been made for private and distance education students as there was no such facility available earlier. Meanwhile, the exams of regular students have already started and their proctoring is being done through Google Meet like the last year.”

Dr Hukam said the students would have to get themselves registered for online or offline examinations and they wouldn’t be allowed to change their option later.

For the online option, the candidates must have high-speed Internet, smartphone or laptop. The students will get the question paper through a link that would be shared on the portal. They would have to sit in the front of a webcam.

Maintaining exam’s integrity

  • Remote proctoring enables students to write an exam in a remote location while maintaining the exam’s integrity.
  • A proctoring software confirms a student’s identity and monitors him/her through a webcam.
  • The video recorded during a remote proctored exam helps flag any suspicious activity or behaviour.
