Mettl’s assessments have been the biggest filter in our recruitment process. Their platform has helped us reach out to a higher volume our applicant numbers. Mettl constantly keeps innovating on their products and tries to introduce a new aspect to everything.
A candidate sitting in an unknown location with no physical supervision might baffle any test administrator. Is the candidate giving the exam genuine or an impostor? Are there any chances of fraud during the assessment? It is an involuntary feeling for the test administrators to feel concerned over these matters. They often seem perturbed by the thought of the integrity of the exam getting compromised. Imagine if you wake up one morning only to realize that you have been robbed of your ability of sight. A test administrator feels the same about the candidate giving an exam miles away while he/she is sitting in a remote corner.
A remotely proctored exam ensures that the assessment is padlocked in the best possible way to keep the test administrator unfazed by questions about cheating, authorization, and security of the exam content. Mettl’s remote proctoring software allows a student and the test administrator to transgress the geographical boundaries and be a part of a technological era, which caters to two significant industries, one being education and the other, recruiting.
Remote proctoring software can be thought of as the eyes, ears, and nose of any examiner. It is the eyes to spot if the right candidate is giving the assessment or not; ears to ascertain there is no disturbance caused during the exam and nose to smell out anything fishy via the recording feature of remote proctoring. The test administrator goes through the recording of the assessment, ensuring that nobody tampers with the test.
Remote Proctoring is a three-level padlock system against cheating.
Level 1 implies the start of the test, where the examinee is being verified through facial recognition and biometric verification.
Level 2 implies the ongoing evaluation process, where a remotely settled proctor can synchronously invigilate a large pool of candidates. It is just like an examiner closely observing the behavior of candidates in an examination hall; the only difference is that all this is now possible on an online platform. The number of times a candidate deviates from the test window, the system will issue automated warnings to flag such incidences.
Level 3 is the stage of completion. Once the exam is over, the entire recording is archived, and the administrator/faculty can access it afterward

According to the World Economic Forum, the Fourth Industrial Revolution has arrived where the technology is now designed to put the spotlight on the most isolated corners of the world. The fourth revolution is a digital revolution that is defined by an amalgamation of technologies that is blurring the lines between biological, mental, and digital spheres. Teleportation is no more a far fetched notion, and most of us are strongly connected via the virtual world.
Technology today is no different from the water that makes its way through rocks and mountains. Technology has reached where no man has.
