Creating an e-testing and online proctoring system for moscow state university of medicine and dentistry A.I. Evdokimov

Get started
Solution

Exam is one of the first online proctoring systems in Russia, allowing for the web-based students' knowledge assessment using advanced information technology

The system was created by Notamedia in partnership with one of the leading Russian universities, the Moscow State University of Medicine and Dentistry A.I. Evdokimov of the Ministry of Health of Russia.

The MSUMD was founded in 1922 and is now ranked among the leading universities in Russia for medical science and the leading university for dentists.

Background and challenge

The pandemic has accelerated the transition of universities to distance learning. The main goal of Exam is to make remote knowledge assessment easy, simple and reliable for all participants

How it used to work

At MSUMD they were on a common platform for high schools based on 1C:University PROF. It allowed students to manage their personal data, add test scores, and trace their academic performance through a user account.

The task to be accomplished

A transparent remote testing and a remote testing supervision by teachers had to be implemented in a tight timeframe.

Why did it stop working

The system suffered from a lack of e-learning features. This was particularly acute during the pandemic, when students and teachers were unable to attend classes and examinations in person.

Solution

Develop tools for online testing and simultaneous online proctoring, analytics and reporting modules, and a feedback channel for students. Synchronize the new system with 1C.

Development process

We have designed a transparent and user-friendly e-testing platform utilizing video streaming and screen recording

Main modules

Sign up and authorization

Test designer

Statistics

Feedback

Exams schedule

Mailing list

Ensure test transparency

Features we've added to observe tests:

Streaming service with video capture from the student's webcam and screen recording.

Viewing the student’s track record with all the background information loaded from 1C.

Live chat for students and tech support to solve problems or connectivity issues.

Main challenge

When testing is done online, one wonders whether the student took it honestly and whether the score is fair. With a live webcam and screen sharing, the proctor can see students' faces and hands and track if they are cheating, while desktop capture reveals tabs open on students' desktops. Since all records are kept, students can appeal and use these records as a defense if any disputes arise.

Outcome

The Exam takes into account the most important features and standards of the educational process and has been successfully tested with more than 2,000 students

The first e-tests were held at MSUMD from July 28 to August 13, 2020. More than 2,000 enrollees and students were tested online through the new platform.Tests proved that distance testing is more uncomplicated and web-based students’ knowledge assessment is safer and more reliable with Exam.Now, all you need is a computer with a webcam to track and observe tests live.
The Exam was designed by working closely with MSUMD, so it incorporates all educational standards. This allows for quick, easy and compliant deployment in educational institutions. Future product evolution will take it to a full-fledged digital university offering e-learning and webinars, professional development courses for teachers, detailed analytics on various categories of users, and other solutions.
