A non-invasive, secure solution for exams you can trust in a familiar Zoom environment

Built on years of research to promote academic integrity

TRUSTING ONLINE EXAMS

Learn how Exams for Zoom can help you assess skills and deliver exams differently. If you want, you can still use the comfort of your LMS, live or completely unattended.

Bringing institutional flexibility and transparency for participants
Built for Zoom

Login with your Zoom credentials or launch within your Zoom session, all with a familiar interface.

Live or unattended

Conduct a live evaluation or rely on AI to support 100% unattended and recorded exams.

Identity Verification

Including ID card analysis, registration, and liveness biometrics validation.

Computer Vision

Capture events like face detection, low attention, outside screen looking and unauthorised objects.

Meta-assessment

Allow artifact collection, assessment feedback and sentiment analysis. Continuously improve your exams.

Non-invasive security

Monitor browser and desktop activity, including “copy/paste”, other tabs and focused apps.

How it works

Follow your link to login/sign-up. The participant is presented, in the browser, with a familiar interface and audio/video settings adapted to an exam environment. He/She can only audio/video interact with the host in a live assessment.

After identity validation (optional), all the science and security for the assessment is happening behind the scenes. Providing real time and recorded feedback to the host and allowing the participant to focus.

Once the assessment starts, the non-critical elements of the interface are hidden in order to avoid distractions. Questions are loaded from an LMS or an activity is guided on the desktop.

The Exam Host controls the assessment format and academic trust, down to the smallest detail. The host panel provides live events and status updates to the host. Assessment meta-data is available to help improve the overall assessment experience.

During the assessment the host can alternate different views and provide one on one assessment support if needed.

The secure exams sector has grown focused on almost Orwellian type of control, often with unfamiliar, daunting interfaces and complex technical setups.

Exams for Zoom leverages the ubiquity of videoconference experience and curated non-intrusive technology, to be the foundation for trust, academic integrity and modern assessment methodologies.

ASSESSMENTS

Optimal for all types of assessments in K12, Higher Education and Professional environments. Ranging from psychometric tests to coding skills and language exams. Built on years of research.

FAQ’S
Simple answers to complicated questions

When will Exams for Zoom be generally available?

We are hard at work to have the GA version 1.0 of the product ready for Fall 2021. During the summer, our early adopters will have access to our beta for early testing and product feedback. If you want to be considered for early access, please fill out the Contact Us form.

Do I need a Zoom account to access E4Z?

No. You can login with an individual email address or using oAuth (Google or Zoom credentials). Zoom Pro users enjoy free access to most premium features.

Can I author or upload my own questions?

At the moment you can leverage your existing LMS, assessment engine or desktop share to evaluate skills. Our Winter release includes an advanced authoring system and QTI enabled mass upload of questions.

Is E4Z compatible with Moodle, Blackboard, Canvas or Brightspace?

Absolutely yes. You only need to indicate the URL of the assessment or your general LMS URL in order to enable Exams for Zoom. An LTI integration for the most common LMS can also be requested on-demand.

How about data privacy and GDPR?

We strictly follow GDPR guidelines. All the academic integrity settings can be enabled and disabled by the host and/or institution. All the sentiment and AI analysis happens on the client’s browser (no unencrypted server-side processing) except for a few advanced ID/biometric options. Just the minimum required data is stored encrypted and anonymised where possible.

(For the techies) Are there LTI or QTI integrations available?

LTI integration for your LMS can be requested ad-hoc from our team. QTI integration is a feature in our winter release.

What is the E4Z pricing structure?

We offer SaaS enterprise licenses to schools, universities, governments and companies, based on a per assessment basis. If you are a Zoom Pro enterprise user, you can already enjoy most of our enterprise grade functionalities for free.

Can I request early access to E4Z?

Sure. Please reach out using the Contact Us form.

How many participants can a single host monitor live?

The total number of participants in a hosted monitor session is 27. The maximum view in-screen is 9 participants and participants can be toggled. For larger groups, you can break down into sub-groups, or schedule an unattended exam.

We use Microsoft Teams. Can we still try this out?

Absolutely yes. And we are working closely in a sister solution “Exams For Teams” that aligns tightly with Microsoft’s workflows. Stay tuned!
