Computer-Based Testing – Focusing on the Administrator

Audience: All
Technical Level: Low

For years, Software Secure has provided law schools our Securexam software to enable students to use their own computers to take tests without being able to cheat. While continuing to mature and evolve the core security software, Software Secure has recently turned to the task of making computer based exams easier to administer.

To date exam software has benefited students, but at times has added additional work for those responsible for administering exams or managing school IT. The work Software Secure has done in this area has manifested itself in �PlanetSSI� a web-based system that removes the friction of exam administration and more closely connects the students with faculty and administration. After all, computers should make things easier, not more complex.

Software Secure will also provide a peek of its newest product offering, Securexam Remote Proctor, which extends our Securexam testing technology in to the true distance learning market. Using video, audio and fingerprint authentication technology, Securexam Remote Proctor enables schools to offer testing anytime from anywhere with the same academic integrity of an on-campus, proctored exam room. Securexam Remote Proctor represents a tremendous boon for any program thinking to expand into the distance learning environment.
