Test Security at Shenandoah University: A SlideShare Presentation

Headshot JuliePosted by Julie Delazyn

Students involved in Shenandoah University’s mobile learning initiative, iMLearning, use the Apple MacBook Pro for accessing course material and online assessments. They can also choose an iPodTouch, iPad 3G or iPhone for a quick mobile delivery option. Using the iPad for lab exercises, for instance, students can move from station to station without having to carry around a laptop.

In this presentation from the 2013 Questionmark Users Conference, Terra Walker and Cheri Lambert of Shenandoah University explore various security measures they use to ensure test integrity both in the iMLearning program and Windows-based testing. The presentation focuses on Using Questionmark Secure with Windows PCs and Macs but also covers measures such as question and answer randomization, seating arrangements, proctors and honor code.

This is just one example of what people learn about at our Users Conferences. Registration is already open for the 2014 Users Conference March 4 – 7 in San Antonio, Texas. Plan to be there!

Delivering tests to Mac users via Questionmark Secure

Posted by Jim Farrell

It’s no secret that Macs are everywhere. Visit a college campus and you see the distinctive logo on laptops as far as the eye can see. We are pleased to announce a new option for customers wishing to deliver exams on a locked-down browser: Questionmark Secure is now available for Mac users.

For those of you who don’t already know, Questionmark Secure is a lock-down browser that people can use to take online tests and exams. Organizations can use it in conjunction with Questionmark OnDemand or Questionmark Perception on-premise software to help test takers use their own cognition to answer questions and prevent them from accessing other applications.

Questionmark Secure was already available for Windows PCs, and we’re pleased to be extending secure delivery across a broader range of platforms with the addition of this new version for Macs. It’s important to be able to deliver tests securely regardless of whether participants are using Windows or Mac machines.
