Test Site Management
Our network of over 180 examination centres nationwide provides a clean, comfortable and positive writing environment with high quality computers, stations and workspaces to ensure a good candidate experience.
Yardstick regularly maintains and assists with increasing the quality of each location regularly. In addition to our large network of testing centres, Yardstick also offers “Virtual Proctoring” to those candidates who have trouble locating an examination centre due to remote areas, special accommodation and time constraints. Virtual proctoring is a process whereby a trained proctor can monitor candidates taking computer-based tests from anywhere in the world via a ‘proctor cockpit’. Tests that once required a physical location for a candidate to take a test, with a physical proctor present overseeing the test-taking process, are replaced with an advance test-taking interface, allowing two-way video and audio communication between a candidate and a proctor via a secure high-speed Internet link.
Test-takers are no longer required to commute to a physical test-taking location; the convenience of their home or office provides the infrastructure required to take a secure assessment. Yardstick has formed partnerships with virtual proctoring organizations that offer the state of the art in virtual proctoring techniques. If your organization is interested in this secure yet cost effective proctoring approach please contact us!
