  • Patent number: 9892315
    Abstract: Techniques for behavior detection in electronic examinations may be realized as a method including: collecting sensor data of an examinee taking an electronic examination, the sensor data including visual image data of the examinee taken over time; automatically detecting from the collected sensor data a pattern of behavior correlated with potential misconduct; and providing an alert to an administrator of the electronic examination based on the detected pattern of behavior. The techniques may further be realized as a system configured to collect visual image data of the examinee and one or more processors configured to carry out the method.

  • Publication number: 20170287022
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods for facilitating transactions between a merchant-partner and an end-user. In one embodiment, a service provider: (a) stages a transaction between a merchant and a consumer; (b) creates a transaction-specific unique reference locator (URL) linked to a transaction-specific web page; and (c) sends the transaction-specific URL to the consumer's mobile device. Whereupon the consumer clicks on the transaction specific URL on their mobile device, the service provider displays a token ID on the transaction-specific web page. The token ID is linked to the staged transaction and is used to initiate data communication between a point-of-sale (POS) terminal and the service provider's processing unit. The service provider can then: receive confirmation that the consumer has presented the token ID and a payment to the POS terminal; display a transaction receipt on the transaction-specific web page; and/or notify the merchant that the consumer has provided the payment.
