Prometric, a global leader in technology-enabled assessment solutions, has introduced a new innovative remote assessment solution powered by advanced artificial intelligence (AI) that further expands the company’s testing options for candidates and certification organizations. Fully powered by AI, this new remote testing solution offers three custom tiers designed to address the unique needs of global testing organizations – fully automated AI-supervised remote assessment with ProProctor AI, AI-supervised plus live professional review with ProProctor AI+ in addition to a live proctored experience, enhanced by AI, with ProProctor Live.
“While remote testing is certainly nothing new to Prometric, we continue to invest in and evolve our technology to meet changing market trends and respond to the need for more advanced remote offerings, which continues to accelerate during the pandemic said Kevin Pawsey, general manager of remote assessments at Prometric. “As AI continues to evolve to create a highly secure remote testing experience, I am pleased to announce that this new offering will be added to our existing suite of remote solutions, offering our candidates and clients greater flexibility, anytime, anywhere to test everywhere.”
Powered by advanced AI, Prometric’s new remote assessment solution incorporates cutting-edge technology to meet the demand for remote assessment while propelling the industry into a new hybrid and inclusive environment. The AI platform uses advanced technology to ensure a consistent candidate exam experience while protecting the integrity and security of the exam. The system constantly looks for potential behavioral anomalies, which are then reviewed after review by trained supervisors to create a multi-modal level of safety and a fair, equitable experience for candidates. Together, the platform better protects exam integrity, detects misconduct, and ensures the highest level of security, ultimately providing better value for clients and a convenient, fair testing environment.
“The demand for remote exams and flexible testing options is not decreasing. More than 50% of our current clients want to continue using a remote assessment option to better serve candidate needs,” said Nikki Eatchel, Chief Assessment Officer at Prometric. “The hybrid delivery of assessments — including both remote and in-center testing options — is key to giving test-takers the flexibility and accessibility they need to test where they want when they want. This is the future of testing, and Prometric will continue to invest in products and services to support flexible, safe, and fair testing.”
This new remote solution expands the company’s portfolio of remote testing solutions and is offered through ProProctor™, Prometric’s long-running remote assessment platform and was previously recognized as a finalist in the EdTech Cool Tool Awards. It’s part of Prometric’s continued investment in AI technology since earlier this year Prometric acquired Finetune, a leading innovation in AI-assisted assessment and learning technology that enables Prometric to accelerate the test development process with rapid changes to the courseware. With this option, Prometric is now a complete end-to-end assessment provider, offering hybrid, in-center, and remote offerings with the ability to customize with AI-only or AI and live agent capabilities.
