Perhaps the top priority of any test maker is ensuring optimal security throughout the entire assessment process. Without effective security measures in place, tests are vulnerable to compromising breaches of content that can ruin the essential validity and worth of an assessment. Developing meaningful test items and establishing an appropriate evaluation process often requires significant time and resources, which is why protecting this content is so vital. Understanding the importance of ensuring the utmost test security, computer-based assessment software must implement integrated security policies and permissions to control access with confidence.

Posted by Jennie Aldridge Aug 20, 2015 1:00:00 PM

When conducting assessments, there are almost as many ways to test people as there are reasons for designing the evaluations in the first place. Administrators may assess achievement or proficiency using any combination of multiple choice, true/false, short answer, integrated media point-and-click, and many more answer formats, assigning their choice of score to each test item to best gather the necessary information. Answers may be weighted according to importance or difficulty, or even scored negatively to discourage guessing.

Although test generator software has helped make reliability and validity easier to achieve for administrators, both concepts must still be taken into account when one creates a test. Hiring criteria today is becoming stricter, meaning that pre-employment screening is more frequently used to evaluate candidates. Organizations also implement tests to evaluate the effectiveness of workshops and training seminars.

Understanding Integrity Testing

Posted by Jennie Aldridge Nov 13, 2014 12:00:00 PM

To improve the efficiency of their hiring process, businesses and companies will often use online exam software to develop and administer integrity tests. After polygraphs were restricted from pre-employment screening processes in the 1980s, integrity tests have become an effective method of screening potential employees for personality traits or behaviours which could be considered counterproductive. Counterproductive behaviours include absenteeism, lateness or dishonest acts. There are two main types of integrity test questions: overt questions which ask about past behaviours, and veiled-purpose questions which focus more on personality. To understand how to test the integrity of an employee, an administrator first must understand how different test items can reveal the character and intent of candidates.

Making Use of Media Banks with Test Creation

Posted by Jennie Aldridge Aug 14, 2014 11:01:00 AM

Educators have long acknowledged the importance of incorporating a range of media into teaching plans. No matter the subject area, students simply learn better when they have access to multiple interpretive tools. Some of us absorb new ideas more effectively when they’re articulated in text, while others prefer video, flow charts, or illustrations. When instructors - or business leaders, publishers and marketers - find ways to conceptualize key ideas in diverse ways, they truly get the most out of their material and connect with audiences in more meaningful ways.
