NORWALK, CT – August 16, 2012 – Assessment technologies and services provider Questionmark® today announced that Questionmark Secure, which enables secure online delivery of medium- and high-stakes tests, is now available to organizations serving users of Mac PCs.
Questionmark Secure helps prevent cheating on high-stakes exams delivered by Questionmark’s assessment management system. This lock-down browser provides a safe environment for online tests and exams, reducing the risk of cheating and complementing other defenses for mitigating threats to content security and results integrity. It prevents participants from copying or printing exam material, accidentally exiting a test, or gaining access to materials on their computers or the Internet that could give an unfair advantage.
When a participant takes an online assessment using Questionmark Secure, the lock-down browser displays the content of the assessment but disables key system functions such as task-switching, right-click options, screen captures, menus and printing.
“We’re pleased to be extending secure delivery across a broader range of platforms by offering Questionmark Secure to organizations delivering tests to Mac users,” said Questionmark Product Manager Jim Farrell. “It’s very important for our customers to be able to deliver tests securely to Mac users and Windows users alike.”
Questionmark Secure has previously been available for Windows-based PCs. The Mac version, now available at the Mac App Store, addresses the needs of educational institutions and other organizations serving a growing base of participants using Macs to access online assessments and learning resources. Test takers can use the secure browser free of charge.
