Security in the Final Step of Test and Exam Delivery

Posted by Julie Delazyn

The secure delivery of high-stakes assessments should protect valuable test/exam content and the integrity of results as well as personally identifiable information about participants.

Achieving this requires organizations to  thoughtfully determine what delivery methods and security measures to use – by carefully considering questions such as these:

  • How can we provide security measures that make sense for a particular type of assessment?
  • How do the potential outcomes of an assessment affect a participant’s propensity to cheat?
  • What should we look for in terms of network security, application security and data center security?
  • How can we mitigate such threats as impersonation, content theft and cheating?
  • What measures should we take to protect data?
  • What monitoring options should we consider?
