Public Agency Training Assessment and Evaluation

For public agencies engaged in further training of civil servants, it can be an onerous task to manage the assessments after training is completed. TestReach simplifies this task by enabling the running of multiple tests for each course or topic area, and streamlining the management of candidates and results. You can run post-course surveys, and pre- and -post training examinations, to track knowledge retention, understanding and confidence levels.

Citizen Assessment Processes

Government and Public Agencies often have to run exams for citizens who apply for accreditation in various skills areas, such as for driving licences or visa applications. Using an innovative provider such as TestReach enables agencies to run any type of exam with a wide variety of question types and test assembly tools. With TestReach, exams can be delivered in many different ways – from a simple honour-based test through to a high-stakes exam delivered in a test centre or over-the-web, using our remote invigilation exam delivery.

Monitoring Skills and Competencies

By running tests before, during and after training interventions and events, including monitoring confidence levels as well as knowledge, organisations gain great insights into the skills and competencies of the public workforce and any gaps that need to be addressed. You can use TestReach for course evaluations, pre- and post- course tests and practice tests. This will improve and document employee knowledge of operational procedures, equipment operations and health and safety rules.

Secure Computer Lockdown and Randomised Questions

Secure Computer Lockdown and Randomised Questions

The use of randomised papers and questions, test timers and secure computer lockdown enable organisations to run secure tests that give valid results. With TestReach you can automatically generate test papers according to certain rules, so that each person sitting a test gets a unique paper but at the same difficulty level (this is the LOFT model – linear on the fly testing). This reduces the chance of conferring and gives a better reflection on the actual knowledge of an employee. By locking down the computer for the duration of the exam, the candidate cannot navigate away from the TestReach application to check facts online or copy your valuable content.

Secure Exam Delivery & Remote Invigilation

For high-stakes exams, organisations can deliver exams online using our integral remote invigilation, which enables candidates to sit a secure exam from any location, while being monitored over-the-web by a trained TestReach invigilator. Remote invigilation can be used on a ‘spot-check’ basis to enhance compliance with test rules, and increases the validity of results and compliance reports. It is very convenient for candidates who can take their exam at home or in their office and is also very useful for international recruitment. You can read more about our recruitment solutions here.
