INFORMATION ON EXAMS WITH ONLINE PROCESSING

For exams with online supervision, Cert-IT uses the ProctorExam software to identify and remotely monitor candidates. With this software, the candidate is identified before the exam by showing a photo ID via camera and then the exam room is filmed once by the candidate via camera. During the test, two cameras (notebook webcam and mobile phone) record it from different perspectives. The recordings are viewed both live by supervisors and, if necessary, afterwards. The recordings of the examination are stored in encrypted form on servers located in Europe and are deleted immediately after the examination by the examiner, provided that no violation of the guidelines has been found.

 

ATTENTION: Violations of the examination guidelines can lead to an examination being considered invalid - even retrospectively. Any costs incurred will not be reimbursed in this case. Gross violations and attempts at cheating can lead to a temporary or permanent exclusion from participation in further examinations.
