Cirrus Assessment is delighted to have been chosen alongside our online proctoring partners, ProctorU to deliver the suite of exams for CompTIA‘s Project+ certification. Together with ProctorU, we will be delivering a secure, reliable and fully proctored test delivery system for Project+.
Vegard Sivertsen, CEO Cirrus Assessment
We have worked tightly with CompTIA for almost a year to create their desired solution. CompTIA has challenged us and we have worked hard to create the ideal solution that will greatly benefit both CompTIA and the test takers. I am therefore delighted that we now have gone live with such a prestigious organization as CompTIA.
The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) is the world’s leading technology association, with approximately 2,000 member companies, 3,000 academic and training partners, over 100,000 registered users and more than two million IT certifications issued. CompTIA’s unparalleled range of programs foster workforce skills development and generate critical knowledge and insight – building the foundation for technology’s future.
ProctorU watches students take exams online using webcams and screen-sharing technology. The service gives students the convenience of testing at home and instructors the ability to ensure exam security.
ProctorU uses a three-step process that confirms that the student who registered for the exam is the student who is taking the exam and is following the institution’s testing requirements. Test monitors can see the student, see what they are doing and know who they are monitoring using webcams and screen-sharing technology. ProctorU offers live, person-to-person, real-time monitoring to more than 900 colleges, universities and certification organizations.
