Success story UVVG Proctoring for Universities Rector Cotoraci Coralia Adina

Success Story: UVVG

SMOWL helped this Romanian University to provide a safe environment for exams from home during the pandemic.

With pandemic times, all the students were forced to take the exams at home. And the Vasile Goldiș Western University of Arad was worried about the veracity and quality of the exams that were performed without an online proctoring solution.

Before COVID, and for the last 10 years the UVVG students performed their asynchronous learning processes and exams through Moodle, but this only happened inside the university’s laboratories.

What was their biggest challenge?

Due to the big amount of students enrolled during the last course, when the pandemic started, it was very difficult to review and proctor them manually and one by one, so they determined that the best solution was an AI-based proctoring solution, which led them to the Smowltech proctoring solutions.

How did students perform their exams before SMOWL?

UVVG has used over 10 years Moodle platform, for asynchronous learning and also for exam testing purposes, but only inside university laboratories.

SMOWL was the perfect solution for them

UVVG chose the SMOWL service, which let them identify the user during the whole exam, avoid identity theft as well as prevent the user from receiving support from other people or unauthorized elements such as mobile devices.

SMOWL is our proctoring solution that monitors your students through their webcam with no installation needed and from every device, including mobile ones.

Which were the results?

Thanks to SMOWL Proctoring Solutions, the Romanian university was able to offer a fair and secure environment for all the users that were realizing the exam, recognizing the knowledge, dedication, and effort of the students.

Authenticate every user’s identity during the exam.

Prevent fraud and unethical behavior during the exam.

Allow students to perform their exams from every location.

An advice to students: Take the exam seriously, because an OWL is watching you”.
