The COVID-19 pandemic took the world by surprise, and everything came to a halt. The education sector had to adjust accordingly by shifting to online learning. If the online delivery experience was overall successful, assessment integrity becomes questionable as examinees still manage to circumvent the anti-plagiarism mechanism put in place. In this paper, we propose an artificial intelligence solution using face and head pose detection to estimate the neutral position of the examinee which will form the basis to detect any suspicious behavior. The resulting implementation achieved a 97% accuracy when detecting the examinee in the frame and a 98% accuracy when there are multiple faces detected.
