Assessment and COVID-19

Helping you adjust to the ‘new normal’

Many organizations outside of the Surpass Community have found running traditional testing programs in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic a difficult task. For those which have not already engaged with online testing technology and services, the only option has been to delay exam sessions in the hope that things will soon return to normal.

Despite the amazing efforts of our health services and leaders, organizations are quickly realizing that COVID-19, and the impact it has had, is here to stay for some time.

Reboot your assessment delivery with online proctoring

Keeping your assessment schedule going will quickly become the highest priority for your business. You don’t need to delay and wait for centers to open. A large number of our community members impacted by COVID-19 started to make the switch to online proctoring almost immediately after centers were closed and the lockdown was confirmed. Not all states and nations are operating lockdown in the same way, therefore you must protect your business with the best dual-camera online proctoring solution on the market, whether it’s for some or all of your candidates. We have delivered tests via online proctoring using both ‘record and review’ and ‘live’ modes in over 90 countries and have been leading the way in this sector for some time, so join our community and get testing again.

We appreciate that moving from paper to digital can be a harder challenge for some organizations. Therefore, we have developed a series of tools that will quickly enable you to bridge the gap and deliver paper distributed assessments in an online proctored space. Contact the team if you need assistance in this area.

The months to come

We hope that you and your family remain safe over the coming months. We appreciate that the disruption brought about by COVID-19 will continue and start to impact other areas of your test development process. That’s why we have been working with our partners on a series of resources to guide the Surpass Community in adapting to this new normal.
