Important considerations

  1. User requirements

Users must download Rosalyn to their laptop or computer. Please go through the candidate Rosalyn guide in these help docs here. See our separate candidate guide here which can be shared with users with detailed requirements. And Rosalyns own help centre can be found here. Remember to do this users will need access to the right permissions and be on a suitable network.

  1. Human Proctors

The AI is used to flag suspicious behaviour to a human proctor, it is the human proctor that makes any final decisions. They will always prioritise getting a user through the exam, then providing you as the admin a comprehensive report so you can make the decision on whether or not to fail an exam based on cheating.
