Remote Invigilation Solution for HFE with ProctorU
ProctorU are the world’s largest provider of online invigilation services. Health and Fitness Education (HFE) are one of the UK’s leading training providers to the active leisure sector. Working with SkillsLogic, these organisations have established a partnership to enable remote invigilation of HFE’s examinations.
A customized integration between ProctorU, HFE and the SkillsLogic learning management system provides a unique and seamless testing experience for HFE candidates. Using a combination of artificial intelligence and human invigilation, ProctorU are now able to remotely monitor HFE exams. Candidates are able to take examinations from the comfort of their home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The HFE examination process also meets the stringent quality requirements of OFQUAL.
“We are thrilled to provide health and fitness professionals in the UK with a convenient way to become HFE-certified,” said Scott McFarland, ProctorU CEO. “Secure exam delivery through online invigilation gives fitness professionals the convenience to test when they are ready, without the health risks of going to a test centre, while also maintaining the value of the HFE credential.”
“It was apparent early in the escalation phase of the current COVID-19 pandemic that we urgently needed an alternative way to allow our learners to take their exams and achieve their qualifications,” said Lee Cain, Managing Director at HFE. “A remote solution was the only viable option, but we had serious reservations about how we could ensure that exam results would reflect a learner’s true ability. Our professional reputation would be at risk if we were to get this wrong. The fantastic thing about where we are now is that we have an altogether superior exam experience for our learners. They can literally take their exams securely, anytime, anywhere.”
Daniel Barnes of SkillsLogic said “This was an interesting and rewarding project for us. Meeting the needs of both ProctorU and HFE was our primary focus, but delivering a practical solution to the need for services such as online invigilation was also key. As more and more of our lives move into the digital sphere, solutions like this will become the foundation on which our online lives are built. I’m happy to be able to show that SkillsLogic are at the forefront of providing such solutions.”
