The creation of Virtual Learning Environments
(VLEs) have revolutionized the online delivery of learning
materials, from traditional lectures slides through to podcasts,
blogs and wikis. However, such advances in how we assess such
learning have not evolved – with physical attendance at
proctored exams still a necessity for formal assessments. This
paper presents a novel model to enable remote and electronic
invigilation of students during formal assessment. The approach
utilizes transparent authentication to provide for a non-intrusive
and continuous verification of the candidates identity throughout
the examination timeframe. A prototype is developed and a
technology evaluation of the platform demonstrates the feasibility
of the approach.
