Secure, Simple and Cost-Effective Computer-based Testing
Computers are a valuable tool in testing and a logical next step for moving from handwritten testing. Students, more accustomed to typing than writing, are better able to demonstrate their knowledge on a computer. With the help of computer-grading, faculty can spend more time teaching. Institutions are able to leverage their existing investment in Course Management Systems, campus networks and general IT infrastructure to help make this switch to computer based testing seamless.

But even in a proctored setting, it's not easy to prevent PC-based test takers from getting unauthorized help via their computers.
Software Secure prevents cheating with Securexam Student and Securexam Browser. These solutions help keep test takers honest by locking down their PC operating systems and browsers during testing. At the same time, they offer an array of administrative features that make the process of testing and grading more efficient and productive.

Since 2007, the number of online college students has grown 17% to 4.6 million and is projected to continue rapid growth for the foreseeable future. In the face of higher education budgets that are under tremendous pressure and the demand of increasing student capacity, online education is now recognized as a cost-effective complement to traditional classroom learning and allows institutions to reach students all over the world.
A major challenge is satisfying this growing demand in the online world while maintaining academic integrity in remote testing and meeting the authentication mandates of the Higher Education Act. Software Secure makes it possible to get all the benefits of secure, fully proctored testing in remote environments- without the costs and hassles- with Remote Proctor.
With virtual proctoring technology like Remote Proctor, institutions can administer exams-to anyone, anywhere and at any time - with full confidence that test takers are doing their own work without outside help. How it works:
• A biometric fingerprint
scanner confirms the test takers identity
• Software locks down the browser
to restrict web access and to other non-test related information on the computer, and
• A 360 degree camera captures and records all activity and audio during testing
In doing so, Remote Proctor ensures the integrity of testing while making test taking more convenient for students. As a result, institutions can reach the broadest possible market while maintaining their accreditation and academic integrity. And students benefit from having the convenience and flexibility to pursue advanced learning on their own terms.
