TesTrac.com Launches First-Ever Simulation Test Items
Burnsville, Minn. – TesTrac.com, Ltd, a world leader in online testing, announces a new offering for test administrators: a secure browser option.
A secure browser offers test administrators a way to limit a candidate’s access to unauthorized materials or information. “It’s a matter of keeping tighter control of the test environment,” says TesTrac.com president Doug Odell. “It prevents candidates from accessing outside information or input, and helps keep test content secure.”
The secure browser isn’t a secure website, like you’d use for banking or online purchasing. It is a small program that is downloaded and installed on the test candidate’s computer. “Our secure browser actually installs in the computer’s cache, so it doesn’t make any impact on the operating system or other programs on the computer,” says Doug Odell. When the candidate installs the secure browser, he or she is taken directly to the testing site. When the test is complete, the browser removes itself from the computer.
“This is a simple, painless way
to run a secure browser,” adds Doug Odell. “It’s extremely easy for the
candidate to install, and it doesn’t cause problems that require technical
support” because the secure browser doesn’t cause any conflict with the
computer’s other programs or even the other web browsers on the machine.
“It’s a clean and simple way to help keep a test very secure,” says Doug
