TrackTest reported 20x increase of proctored online English tests during COVID19 crisis

Online English test provider TrackTest recorded a significant spike in demand for their Verified Exam, an optional online proctoring feature of their English proficiency tests.

In the first three months of 2020, TrackTest provided 2 000% more verified tests compared to the previous year. Almost half of all tests are now taken remotely with online proctoring. This shift is caused by the migration of English assessment centres and schools to the remote operation during the COVID19 crisis as well as incremental growth in demand of the individual test-takers.

Students can take the TrackTest Verified English tests conveniently from their home using just regular notebooks or smartphones. Their identity verification and online proctoring are managed by the web browser and front-facing camera, without a need to install special software or waiting for a scheduled slot in the assessment centre.

“We strongly believe that TrackTest Verified Exam provides an optimum balance between the ease of use for test-takers and robust security features for schools and organisations”, says Brano Pokrivcak, TrackTest B2B consultant. “The Verified English Exam is probably the most cost-efficient English test with online proctoring on the market right now so it can mitigate the challenging financial situation of ELT organisations and students in these unprecedented times.”
