We all know about TOEFL Fraud and how ETS is trying to crack them down.
Recently ETS announced new security measure to detect fraud in TOEFL – New TOEFL Security Measure – Biometric Voice Identification
In a recent interview with PIE News, Eileen Tyson, Executive Director Global Client Relations at ETS discussed about how Biometric Voice Identification will be used to prevent proxies taking TOEFL.
With the new feature we’re adding, we can create voice prints of each test taker and we’ve had a lot of success with it. It allows us to determine whether there is the same voice among several test takers. It can also help us ensure the same test taker is not participating over a number of tests, so it’s going to be huge tool for us.
We currently use it for security investigations but will expand its use in 2013. And there’s a wealth of other things we do to ensure security.
Hope ETS will be successful in implementing this Biometric voice identification and prevent score cancellations of genuine test takers.
