Creating a proctored assessment.

Assessments are a great way for students to revise their learnings and develop a clear understanding of the topic.

Having an assessment proctered adds an extra line of security and transparency. Students attempting proctered assessment are less likely to be involved in malpractices, and proctors can easily assess the behavior of the students and point at any object of suspicion by monitoring the video.
