Abstract

Systems and methods are provided for determining whether a user is authorized to take an examination. Facial recognition technology is used to determine whether an image of a user's face corresponds to an image of a set of images of individuals not permitted to take the examination. Based on a determination that the image of the user's face corresponds to an image of the set of images, a confidence score is assigned or modified. Voice recognition technology is used to determine whether a recording of the user's voice corresponds to a recording of a set of recordings of individuals not permitted to take the examination. Based on a determination that the recording of the user's voice corresponds to a recording of the set of recordings, the confidence score is modified. A determination is made as to whether the user is authorized to take the examination based on the confidence score.
