Standing Apart In An Industry Of Homogenized Online Proctoring

Oct 06, ’23 | Written by Scott Crumpler

In recent years, the sweeping adoption of online testing has transformed both Higher Education and Professional Certification landscapes. This shift, undeniably, has unlocked doors to education and professional growth for a more inclusive, global audience, catalyzing not just individual progress but also bolstering our global community and economy. Yet, as this landscape continues to evolve, a monumental challenge remains: ensuring the authenticity and integrity of online tests and the subsequent credentials awarded.

Proctoring innovation is crucial, but often ignored.

At the heart of this challenge lies remote proctoring technology. While it is essential to online testing integrity, the industry's trajectory has been somewhat concerning. A vast majority of remote proctoring providers have settled for superficial solutions, often prioritizing profitability over genuine commitment to online testing security and equity with in-person testing.

Adding to the concerns, the industry has witnessed a consolidation trend where proctoring platforms are being acquired by industry behemoths.  Such acquisitions can potentially leave the clients of the acquired companies in a difficult position where they must choose to either accept services they previously abandoned or be faced with fewer competing options in the marketplace that can meet their needs.

The homogenization that can occur when umbrella companies fold acquired customers into their existing products to achieve financial efficiencies poses a significant threat to proctoring innovation. It jeopardizes the crucial need for “Test Center Grade” security solutions. Amidst this backdrop, online learning programs and certification bodies find themselves in a predicament, having to choose from a narrowing pool of proctoring providers that increasingly sideline the core principle of integrity.
