Computer-Based Testing: Test Site Security.
Rosen, Gerald A.
Computer-based testing places great burdens on all involved parties to ensure test security. A task analysis of test site security might identify the areas of protecting the test, protecting the data, and protecting the environment as essential issues in test security. Protecting the test involves transmission of the examinations, identifying the examinee, and supervising test administration. Protecting the data means ensuring that it does not fall into the wrong hands, while protecting the environment involves many considerations on the part of test administrators. Simplifying the jobs of test administrators may eventually result in tests administered over the Internet, with tests and data residing at the Web site. Such a system might enhance security and simplicity. Three appendixes discuss the role of appointment scheduling software in the protection of the examination, provide an example of a test site data protection system, and contain an example of a system designed for disaster recovery at a central data center.
