Abstract : In the context of Indian higher education, deployment of online exams for summative assessments is hampered by the lack of a reliable e-assessment system that can guarantee high degree of examination integrity. Current methods for maintaining integrity of online exams largely depend on proctor-based invigilation. This cumbersome method does not fully prevent test-taker impersonation. We propose leveraging the Aadhaar biometric data to verify the presence of the test-taker throughout the entire duration of the examination. Such a continuous presence verification technique is likely to be far more successful in preventing impersonation than the conventional methods. Our method can help eventually eliminate the need for a remote proctor. We identify a set of strategies to systematically validate the effectiveness of the proposed system.
