Best Student Assessment Solution – Why RPNow?
Remote proctoring is a necessary piece of the student assessment lifecycle,” said Doug Winneg, SVP Academic Markets, PSI and former founder of Software Secure. “Any assessment administered remotely via a test delivery engine without a proctoring solution is at risk. Whether from content theft, or cheating – you cannot truly assess online student learning and protect the integrity of online assessments without a security solution.”
