Project Description

The challenge of administering virtual exams for hundreds of thousands of students is a question many school administrators are wondering about. Usually, exams are given to a proctor who has a webcam, each focused on students to monitor student activity and be available for questions. There is an upper limit on the number of students that can be monitored virtually. There are companies that offer this service, such as ProctorU, but they are expensive and likely to be at maximum capacity soon. Are there alternative approaches or creative solutions that could make it easier for online proctors to monitor a larger number of students? Could they monitor select video frames of flagged movement based on anomalous activity identified by computer vision model? Could this happen after the fact based on a code of conduct signed by students? What are the privacy considerations that would need to be taken into account?
