ProctorExam and Assessment Systems Corporation Partner
Proctor Exam launched in 2014 to offer creative solutions to enhance assessment security, with 360-degree monitoring with users’ smart devices and a full range of proctoring options, with their latest introduction, ‘Proctoring Infrastructure as a Service’.
Assessment Systems Corporation has been operating in the field of assessment and testing since 1979, providing both software for testing and psychometrics (with a focus on item response theory and computerised adaptive testing) and consulting services for testing organisations. Assessment Systems was the first company to offer item banking and testing software to the public, in the form of the DOS-based MicroCAT adaptive testing system, nearly 30 years ago. Today their testing program is a web-based system and clients include the World Bank, General Electric and Philips.
Daniel Haven, Director of Proctor Exam explains more about the partnership
“Due to the shared vision for test taking, we are very excited about working with Assessment Systems Corporation. In the future, we want to see whether we can share more life-cycle events to further automate the entire testing process and not necessarily only use communal data to understand whether a person is cheating or not, but also to further increase the quality of the test itself, by a better understanding whether specific questions can be shorter or longer, whether they’re too difficult or not.”
David Saben, President and CEO at Assessment Systems Corporation adds
“More and more clients will have access to the combined technology. The benefit of ProctorExam is that it is comparatively economical, so it’s allowing Assessment Systems Corporation to offer proctoring solutions to people who otherwise wouldn’t be able to do remote delivery. This allows us to open up new opportunities, especially in education – where there are a lot of high-stakes tests delivered.”
