How to enable Inspera Exam Portal and Inspera Smarter Proctoring
Step 1: Enable Inspera Exam Portal
1. In the Delivery module, navigate to the Security options.
2. Click Safe Exam Browser for PC and Mac > Advanced options > Enable Inspera Exam Portal.
3. Set your Invigilator Password and SEB Password.
4. Choose a Security Policy. Select the Security Policy drop-down menu for the following options:
5. To enable Assistive Technologies in Moderate, click Enable Assistive Technologies.
If candidates have multiple tests that they need to complete simultaneously, it is recommended that you do not choose the option to Automatically close lockdown browser when test is completed. If candidates have other tests in their dashboard they can access, they'll be able to take those while in IEP.
Step 2: Enable Inspera Smarter Proctoring
1. To activate record and review proctoring, choose Automated Proctoring and select a Recording option.
2. Select a Recording option.
The permissible combinations are:
- Video only
- Screen only
- Video and Screen
- Video and Audio
- Screen and Audio
- Video, screen, and audio (default)
3. Select an ID verification.
- Disabled: ID verification is disabled
- Fully automated ID verification: Only allows candidates to start the test if their photo and ID match is 90%. There is no manual intervention with this option.
- Dual ID verification mode: Only allows candidates to start the test when both Automatic and Manual ID checks have been completed.
ID checks - The automated proctoring workflow will, by default, require the candidate to take a picture of themselves and their ID. Depending on which ID verification option is chosen, the invigilator can review the candidate ID before the test begins, or post-test. If facial recognition is switched on at a tenant level, an ID match confidence level will be generated along with the photos. If not, the photos alone can be viewed.
Explanation of test options
Candidate sign-in options
When creating a sign-in option for candidates, you can pick one of the following options:
It is not possible to choose a combination of the two sign-ins per test, or across separate tests. Sign-in options are currently decided within the tenant level and not on the test level, it is not possible to combine sign-in options at this time.
When Safe Exam Browser for PC and Mac is enabled, you will need to set the following passwords:
- Invigilator password: The Invigilator password has no restrictions.
- SEB password: Also known to candidates as the SEB Pin, can be a maximum of 6 characters containing at least one letter and number. Other language characters than English are not supported, only printable ASCII characters.
A Security Policy determines how strict the lockdown outcome is for candidates, and how the monitoring outcome behaves in the lockdown browser (IEP). You can choose between four different Security Policies:
To learn more about each Security Policy and how it interacts with monitoring and the lockdown browser, go to the Security Policies page.
Allow candidates to change wifi
This is a useful option if there are several wifi networks at your location. If the candidate loses connection to a wifi network, they can switch to another wifi without leaving IEP.
Note that because of different limitations on MacOS and Windows, they can behave differently depending on whether the candidates use IEP on Mac or on a Windows computer.
- Mac: The candidate can change freely between all available wifi networks.
- Windows: The wifi network must be known to the computer, meaning that the candidate must have been connected to it before. Only known wifi networks will appear in the network list within SEB.
Using screen readers throughout the test is made possible by enabling Assistive Technologies. The candidates' choice of screen reader programs during the test is unrestricted by IEP.
The option to Enable Assistive Technologies is only available in the Moderate Security Policy. In the Open and None Security Policy, assistive technologies are automatically available for candidates to utilize. In the Strict Security Policy, assistive technologies are ignored.
