I’m wondering if any of you are using a 3rd party technology solution other than Acxiom or BioSig as part of your identity verification process. We are aware of BioTracker and KeyTrac but have not yet interrogated those systems.

Thanks in advance,

I'd be interested to know how any of these products would effectively prevent all sorts of cheating practices in unproctored high-stakes online examinations.

For instance, how do they deal with groups of students taking online tests together/concurrently, either physically next to each other, or virtually together, in constant communications using multiple computers, cell phones, FaceTime, Skype, WhatsApp, Web conferencing, Google Hangouts and a plethora of software and technology that enable them to communicate/collaborate in real-time and in mass to take unproctored high-stakes online tests.

Greetings from Chicago.
