Introduction to Intelligent Anti-Cheating Monitoring

Online Exam Maker has powerful intelligent anti-cheating monitoring function.

Intelligent anti-cheating monitoring function can be used after the surveillance camera function is turned on, which can effectively prevent candidates from cheating.

The function of intelligent anti-cheating monitoring will comprehensively monitor suspected cheating behaviors of candidates during an exam, including:

  • Suspected cheating behaviors such as bowing and turning head
  • Sound making by the candidates
  • No human facedetected (the human face is not in the monitorable range of the camera or is blocked)
  • Multiple faces detected
  • Candidate authentication detected

The following is the instructions for using the [Intelligent Anti-Cheating Monitoring] function. It is recommended that users read this document carefully before using this function to understand how to use the function, test procedures for candidates, how to view the invigilation records, and precautions for use, etc.

How to turn on Intelligent Anti-Cheating Monitoring?

After creating an exam, in the [Anti-Cheating] setting of the exam, you need to enable surveillance camera before you can check the “Enable intelligent anti-cheating monitoring” function.



If intelligent anti-cheating monitoring is enabled, users are advised to enable the [Allow to login before entering the exam] function, allowing candidates to log in 30 minutes in advance and prepare for lens adjustment, identity verification, and face recognition required for intelligent anti-cheating monitoring to enter the exam on time.

How to use the intelligent anti-cheating monitoring function?

1.To use the intelligent anti-cheating monitoring function, we need to limit the number of suspected cheating behaviors listed in the intelligent anti-cheating monitoring settings. When candidates make these behaviors and exceed the set number of times, the system will force the paper to be handed in; regarding the sound detection, the sound sensitivity level can be set by the administrator(low, middle, high). When the candidate’s sound is greater than the set sensitivity, it will be detected as a suspected cheating behavior.


2.For exams with the intelligent anti-cheating monitoring function enabled, if the candidate’s face is not in the lens for more than 10 seconds during the exam, the system will automatically hand in the paper; If the [Face Recognition] function is also turned on at the same time, you can set the number of times that “Detect that the face matching failed”. And if the times exceeds, the paper will be handed in automatically.


How do candidates take exams? How does the system intelligently detect cheating?

Step 1: Adjust the lens

After clicking the link of exam, candidates need to adjust the lens. The examinee moves his face in the middle of the lens, and then clicks to enter the examination if it meets the requirements.


Step 2: Confirm personal information

Candidates need to ensure that their personal information is correct and then proceed to the next step, and if there is anything wrong, candidates should exit and report to the administrator.


If face recognition is enabled, the face of candidates should be matched with the photos to enter the exam successfully.


Step 3: Monitoring will be on the whole process during the exam

  • Detect the presence of multiple faces

If multiple faces appear in front of the camera, the system will give a warning. If this behavior occurs more than the set times, the system will immediately force the paper to be submitted if it happens again.

  • Detect the absence of candidate for more than 10 seconds

During the exam, if the system detects that there is no candidate in front of the camera for more than 10 seconds, it will automatically hand in the paper immediately.

  • Paid test-taker detected

If the candidate changes in the middle of the exam, a warning will be given by the system. If this behavior occurs more than the set number, the paper will be handed in immediately.

Note: Face recognition needs to be turned on, and the system will perform face matching every minute, effectively preventing candidates from hiring the paid exam takers!

  • Detect candidates for small movements such as bowing and turning their heads

During the exam, if the examinee bows, turns his head or makes other actions, the system  may detect it as a suspected cheating behavior and will issue a warning. If this behavior occurs more than the set number of times, the system will immediately force the paper to be handed in.

  • Detect that there is a sound greater than the set sensitivity

When the examinee makes a sound during the exam and the sensitivity is greater than the set sensitivity, the system will give a warning. If it exceeds the set number of times, the system will force the paper to be handed in.

How can the administrator view the proctoring record?
