Ensuring the validity of an unproctored or unsupervised remote assessment is a vital part of the assessment process. Without a supervisor, it is not possible to be sure that items are not copied and distributed, or that a candidate is not receiving assistance. Ensuring the test security is therefore a key part of the assessment process.
Podium has designed multiple solutions to assist with test security and the validity of the results:
Ability tests use item banks to ensure that each candidate receives a similar, but not identical assessment. Additionally, Podium shift the responses so that the correct answer is not always in the same position.
Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT) is used for higher level requirements. CAT produces an assessment unique to the candidate that focuses in on their ability.
Podium’s facial validation technology uses the candidates webcam to actively monitor assessment process. It watches to ensure that only one face can be seen at a time, that the face is the same throughout, and uses Artificial Intelligence to detect issues in testing.
The assessment process is continually monitored by the Podium platform. Logs are taken identifying how long a candidate spends on a page, clearing down clipboards if screen shots are taken, Monitoring for screen un-focus, and much more.
