TesTrac.com Offers Live Remote Test Proctoring
Burnsville, Minn. – TesTrac.com, Ltd, a world leader in online testing, announces a strategic partnership with PEOPLECERT to provide live remote test proctoring via webcam.
The partnership allows for remote testing—more important than ever during the COVID-19 era—without giving up the security of both the test and the candidate's demographic data. "This allows for completely secure test proctoring," says TesTrac.com president Doug Odell. "Organizations that rely on testing to certify or license people can be sure that the test was taken fairly and securely."
The partnership is a great fit, both technologically and culturally. PEOPLECERT, based in Athens, Greece, develops and manages globally recognized certification systems and the delivery of their related standardized exams. The two companies offer secure browsers, superior support, and the ability to incorporate seamlessly (a fully integrated process from test mapping to test delivery). "The development process was remarkably simple," says Doug Odell. "From our initial meeting all the way through launching the service, we've been on the same page."
With live remote webcam proctoring, a test taker is constantly under supervision of the test proctor, much in the same way an in-person proctor supervises a group of people taking a test in person. "Webcam proctoring is the emerging technology," says Doug Odell. "It's the answer to secure testing that still needs to take place during COVID and offers cost savings for our clients.".
TesTrac.com will continue to handle registration, eligibility, test assignments, scheduling and, if necessary, e-commerce with the same secure, reliable service they have always provided. The company will also continue to offer in-person test proctoring at centers, but sees a large role for live remote test proctoring. "We're seeing a migration from test centers to live remote proctoring, and it's only been sped up by COVID," says Doug Odell. "The testing industry is recognizing there is no degradation of security, both for the candidate and test content.".
Since 1998, Minnesota-based TesTrac.com has used its proprietary, flexible, customizable online delivery system to facilitate testing for any subject, in almost any language, to web browsers across the globe. TesTrac Online offers a wide array of administrative, security, and data mining tools, ensuring each test is clear, accessible, and tightly controlled.
A leading player in the global certification industry, PEOPLECERT partners with multinational organizations and government bodies for the development and management of globally recognized certification schemes and the delivery of their related standardized exams. PEOPLECERT maintains certification programs on behalf of a wide range of organizations all over the globe.
