The Sight and Sound of Online Testing

Burnsville, Minn. – TesTrac.com, Ltd, a leader in online testing, is pleased to announce that it has re-vamped its state-of-the-art online test delivery system to support video and audio. This means that test questions, once composed of static text and images, can now incorporate video and audio clips, enriching the test-taking experience.

The new capabilities were made possible because of technology developments, widespread broadband Internet access and stabilization of how Internet browsers handle video. “Our clients need us to deliver their tests to any computer, in any location, which means we have to serve a lowest common denominator in terms of technology and internet access,” says Doug Odell, president of TesTrac.com. “But our test takers now have much more predictable operating systems, stable browsers, and high-speed internet, so audio and video are much more feasible.”

The new audio and video components mean that tests can now include video or audio scenarios that ask test-takers to interpret what they've seen and heard. “Just as an example,” says Odell, “imagine you had an HR test of some kind. You could show a video of an interview and then you could test for comprehension and interpretation by asking questions about the interviewer, the interviewee or both. It gives new depth and dimension to test questions.”
A number of clients are already expressing interest for incorporating audio and video components into their tests, says Odell. “Now that the technology is there, we're thrilled to be able to offer reliable, consistent delivery of tests augmented with audio and video. We've wanted to do this for quite a while, but we had to wait for the technology to catch up.”
