PSI/Software Secure Named SIIA Education Technology CODiE Award Finalist for Best Student Assessment Solution

Remote Proctor Now earns prestigious industry recognition

NEWTON, MA – (June 13, 2017) –  PSI-Software Secure, the leader in computer-based testing, today announced that Remote Proctor Now (RPNow) was named a 2017 SIIA CODiE Award finalist in the Best Student Assessment category. This category recognizes the best application or solution for high-stakes assessments in the PK-12 or higher education market and for use in either formative or summative assessments. Finalists represent applications, products and services from developers of educational software, digital content, online learning services and related technologies across the PreK-20 sector.

RPNow is a cloud-based technology and service that allows administrators or faculty to remotely proctor an exam delivered through any Learning Management System or proprietary test delivery engine with integrity, anytime – anywhere.

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier awards for the software and information industries, and have been recognizing product excellence for over 30 years. The awards offer 93 categories that are organized by industry focus of education technology and business technology.

“I am impressed by the level of innovation and creativity demonstrated by the 2017 CODiE award finalists. These products are opening doors for learners of all ages by combining new technologies with research about how people learn in order to respond to student and educator needs.” said Bridget Foster, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of the Education Technology Industry Network (ETIN), a division of SIIA.

“We are honored once again to be named a finalist in the CODiE Awards,” said Douglas M. Winneg, SVP Academic Markets, PSI and founder of Software Secure. “Continuing to receive recognition from SIIA for PSI-Software Secure’s solutions is a reflection of our commitment to meeting the needs of higher education administrators in the evolving edtech landscape.” Winneg explained, “As a pioneer and first-to-market provider of remote proctoring solutions, our research, development and integrations puts us at the confluence of technology, efficiency and scalability – which is where educators find themselves today. We will continue to work with our customers to innovate and push the boundaries of our next generation platform.”

Feedback from the 2017 CODiE Award judges noted that RPNow is “one of the best remote proctoring solutions available” and “leads the market by addressing low bandwidth issues, dedicated human support to test takers, ease of use, cost, and flexibility of scheduling with availability 24×7.” [RPNow] “has a very effective integration with LMS solutions to both pull exam data from the LMS and to return reports back to the LMS.”

“Remote proctoring is a necessary piece of the student assessment lifecycle,” said Winneg. “Any assessment administered remotely via a test delivery engine without a proctoring solution is at risk. Whether from content theft, or cheating – you cannot truly assess online student learning and protect the integrity of online assessments without a security solution.”

PSI-Software Secure is a two-time CODiE Finalist, and won the 2011 CODiE award for Best Mobile Education Solution with its patented RP Pro Solution.

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry’s only peer-reviewed awards program. Educators and administrators serve as judges and conduct the first-round review of all education nominees. Their scores determine the SIIA CODiE Award finalists, and SIIA members then vote on the finalist products. The scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners. Winners will be announced during a CODiE Award Winner Ceremony in San Francisco on July 26 at the Education Impact Symposium, hosted by the Education Technology Industry Network (ETIN), a division of SIIA.
