Leveraging Skype as a Virtual Proctor for testing

Leveraging Skype as a Virtual Proctor for testing

With the Covid19 and so many children and adults social distancing at home, many children are coming to the time of the year where testing such SAT are becoming a necessity. One issue seems to be how to provide the testing with security of a proctor while retaining a safe distance. Some accommodations have already been made such as open book testing, but the lack of proctoring seems to be a major stumbling block. Why can't that be provided through a Skype like meeting where a proctor could have visibility to up to 8 personal cameras? They could even be broken into 8 person groups with a proctor being able to switch groups. Common sense rules would need to be put in place, but I think this could breech a common concern.

Thanks for the feedback @EricJosephson 


I would love to see how this could be implemented but I suspect you need to direct this feedback to the Dept of Education as it would be up to them to decide how to conduct examinations.
