This guide has been developed to assist you and your organization with best practices for the various proctoring settings for your HackerRank assessments.
- Enable the copy/paste option to track and see the content copy-pasted from external sources. The Copy-Paste Frequency column in the excel report helps you to track the number of times a Candidate tries to copy paste a piece of code.
- Enable tab proctoring to track if the candidate has gone out of the tab and looked up some resources online.
- Enable Image Proctoring will force the candidate to keep the camera on for the entire test and the photos can help you identify suspicious activities including:
- Any other person sitting with the candidate.
- The candidate is looking through their phone or other gadgets.
- A candidate is looking away from the laptop/desktop screen most of the time.
- The candidate is not on screen (left the room) for a long time.
- If questions have been leaked after the test has been attempted by the candidates:
- Do not consider that for scoring or Look for plagiarism and copy-pasted content in the candidate’s code.
- Use sections while creating tests and add randomization by allowing the system to pick a set of different questions for each candidate. Since each candidate may get different questions, it is difficult for the candidates to split the test questions among themselves and share answers. Refer here - Section based testing (Creating test sections and how to use them)
- Also, enable the “shuffle questions” option which would add another layer of randomization to the ordering of questions as well so that they cannot rely on question numbers for getting the answers. Refer here - Shuffle Questions and Question Points
