Three things candidates should never do during virtual assessments
This may not be an isolated example. When HirePro, an AI-powered recruitment company, analysed all online assessments over the past six months, it found 60 percent cases “suspicious”.
When these cases were verified by a human review, only 43 percent were found to have cheated. Experts say AI-based proctoring tools do not replace manual monitoring for detecting candidates’ malpractices 100 percent.
A comprehensive proctoring platform deploys a combination of video, audio, browser and image monitoring, says S Pasupathi, Chief Operating Officer, HirePro.
“There are flags that cannot be controlled by the candidate because AI only detects suspicious cases and the final decision will have to be made by humans,” he says.
Pasupathi suggests candidates should avoid switching tabs as much as possible. Besides, a prolonged absence from the test window would be treated as cheating.
