If you’re an educator, simply create an account, add your test questions, send links to your test takers, then proctor using whatever technology you’d like.

Premium Tools

Scorpion Premium comes packed with built-in tools and loads of powerful features to supercharge your development, delivery, and proctoring capabilities. Grow your item pool with AIG, build self-protecting exams with SmartItems™, collaborate with unlimited users, and deliver unlimited tests.

Test Without Proctors

Having difficulty finding a proctoring solution that’s right for you? Self-protecting item types like DOMC™ or SmartItems ensure that, if a test taker captures some of your test content, no other test takers can benefit from that stolen content—stop cheating at the source and reduce your reliance on proctors.

Remote Security Checkup

This one-stop-shop is a blend of Caveon’s three most powerful threat-detecting services: Data Forensics, Web Patrol, and Monitoring. A security checkup is ideal for remote testing programs that need a high-level view into the health of their program to assess areas of strength and vulnerability.

Security Matters

The security of online exams affects us all. It dramatically shapes the lives of students, professors, testing programs, and certification groups—rippling out to the whole of society. Simply put, without valid test scores, many of our most cherished institutions wouldn’t function safely.

The widespread adoption of online testing (especially today when many of us must meet extremely tight deadlines) provides a fertile breeding ground for some common types of test fraud. However, with a holistic approach to security, online testing can be an extremely powerful and valid form of measuring skills and knowledge. In his open letter to the testing industry, Dr. David Foster walks us through the major security risks of online testing, particularly with regard to remote proctoring, and outlines 8 practical steps that every program can start using today.
