Taking Remote Exam (test taker experience)
Below is the user flow for test takers. They start with pre checks to ensure that the system is compatible with Remote Exam. This is followed by logging in, test selection and taking photo and ID for comparison. At the end of this user flow, the test taker starts a Remote Exam which is recorded.
There are three pre-checks that will follow after an introduction to the test taker.
- Automatic system check
- Microphone check
- Webcam check
The ID verification is a combination of username and password to sign in, PIN for unlocking the test, and pictures of face and ID card. The picture the test taker snaps will be used for face recognition to determine confidence levels of later events.
- Log in
- Select test
- Take picture
- Take picture of id-card
