Mobile test proctoring

Mobile Proctoring-2

Have you ever been in the situation where you were in the middle of proctoring a test and you suddenly had to leave the room?

Using remote desktop software (there are many, but I use Splashtop), it is possible to stream your tablet PC’s camera live to your smartphone. After initiating the remote desktop streamer on your tablet and its counterpart receiver on your smartphone, you simply set up your tablet so that the camera is on and pointed at the class.

Show the students their image on your smartphone and tell them that you will continue to monitor them even though you are leaving the room. After an initial reaction of awe, they will assimilate the information and continue on with their test behaving like angels.

The next time you find yourself in a situation where you need to leave the room suddenly, try this little trick to proctor on the go!
