Mitigating Threats to Test Security

Mitigating Threats to Test Security

Cheating, identity fraud and content theft pose serious threats to test and exam security -- and ultimately the integrity and defensibility of test results. Online proctoring solutions are becoming increasingly available and helping awarding bodies address these threats while also reducing costs and improving candidate satisfaction. But addressing these challenges requires a holistic approach that goes beyond secure delivery and addresses the entire assessment development lifecycle. This session will explore common threats to test security and discuss emerging technologies and techniques for mitigating them.
