ProctorU, an online proctoring service that allows students to take exams online while ensuring test integrity, currently works with more than 1,000 academic institutions. The organization teamed up with FTO to provide live proctors to remotely administer in-home exams, such as school admission tests. All FTO staff were specially trained to detect signs of cheating - and could stop the exam if they encountered them.
ProctorU was suffering from high error rates during peak test taking months, as proctors were assigned multiple sessions to oversee at once. Proctors had to work overtime with erratic schedules to accommodate the influx of test takers, which stretched them too thin and negatively impacted morale.
Scaling with seasonal workforce: The FTO team quickly ramped up to assist during peak test-taking season.
The result: fewer mistakes (only 0.61%) and a more seamless experience for students - who didn’t have to wait to take an exam.
Cross-trained agents: A team of FTO proctors were assigned flexible roles. All were trained as both ‘launchers’ and ’ watchers,’ which meant they could - and will continue to - fill in whenever full-time proctors are unavailable or need time off.
“ The FTO agents were super quick learners who helped us when we needed it most."
