Integrity index

Integrity index

HackerEarth has introduced integrity index, a metric calculated from the number and severity of proctoring violations made by the candidate while taking the assessment. Proctoring violations detected by our system, such as tab switches, snapshot violations, and plagiarism, lower a candidate's integrity index, facilitating quicker decision-making by summarizing all the proctoring violations into a single index. 

How does it help?

You can easily filter out 50 to 75% of the candidates based on their integrity index, making your hiring decision quicker and more efficient. To calculate the integrity index, we use artificial intelligence effectively to check for all the proctoring violations and summarize them into a single index from a particular score they get as a candidate. This helps you identify if the candidate has taken the assessment honestly or is worthy of being shortlisted, making the hiring decisions faster and more efficient. 

How do you see a candidate’s integrity index?

You can see the integrity index of a candidate by following these steps:

  1. Log in to the HackerEarth assessment.
  2. Select the assessment taken by the candidate.
  3. Under the Candidates section, select Review pending or Test taken.

  4. You can see the integrity index clearly, which is defined into three parameters which are as follows:
    • Good: The candidate has made none or minimal proctoring violations while taking the assessment.
    • Needs review: The candidate has committed some proctoring violations, and we recommend reviewing their report.
    • Poor: The candidate has committed several or serious proctoring violations, and we strongly recommend reviewing their report.      

Some of the candidates will have NA as their integrity index. The integrity index is only available for the candidates who took an assessment after February 1, 2024. 

That integrity index is calculated based on the proctoring features enabled (snapshot & tab switch). To get an accurate integrity index score, consider enabling additional proctoring features.
