Online Certifications Exam Security
There's no need for concern about verifying that applicants complete their own tests when you utilize ExpertRating for pre-employment testing, thanks to the company's LiveProctor technology. The system utilizes a webcam to establish and verify the test taker's photo identity at the beginning of the exam and throughout the testing session. The system also tracks other applications running on the computer, keyboard activity, the IP address, and more. You'll easily be able to verify that the person who completed the test is the individual you are considering for an open position, and you can be confident that test results reflect the applicant's actual knowledge and skills.
Purchase individual tests or simply set up an employer account that allows you to save money on pre-employment testing exams based on testing volume. When you're ready to assess an applicant's skill level, simply place an online order for the exam of your choice and assign the test to the candidate who will be completing the assessment. Applicants will be able to take the test from their home computer, with no software to install. Other than Internet access, all test takers will need to complete their ExpertRating assessment from home is a webcam. For applicants who do not have the necessary equipment and service, you can require them to test at your office or to find a proctor site in their local area.
