Metro Institute has the capacity to offer multiple, simultaneous online tests. Our technical infrastructure includes programmers, interface developers, and a usability testing group. The system is available for testing participants and for administrative web-based reporting on a 24/7 basis. The testing system and related databases are routinely backed-up to prevent any potential loss of data.
The Metro Institute Online Testing System is a robust, feature-rich Web-based software application for administering, scoring, and reporting tests. Based on the Microsoft .NET framework and Microsoft SQL Server, it is a proven technology that has delivered over 100,000 examinations to date for licensure and certification. The Metro Institute Online Testing System is a complete package that manages all aspects of the testing process: test and user administration, appointment scheduling, proctoring, examination, and reporting. All operations are managed by the Metro Institute team and delivered via secure, dedicated application and database servers. Once the Online Testing System has been configured with the collection of agency-provided tests—which typically includes test names, categories within each test, questions & answers, pass/fail score, and time limit, the tests are ready to be delivered online. As an agency identifies individuals allowed to take the online test(s), it enters information about the test taker into a Web-based form. This information includes the person's name, an identification number, and the category(ies) of tests approved for taking. Once this information has been submitted, the test taker contacts Metro Institute to schedule an exam at an approved testing location. At approved test taking locations, trained test proctors welcome test takers, verify their identification, take a picture of the test taker and upload it to the testing system, and log the test taker into a secured testing session on an approved computer. Testing sessions are monitored by the proctor to ensure the integrity of all testing events. Upon completing the test, the test taker sees their results on the screen and receives a printed copy of the results. These results are also then immediately available to the agency via Web-based reports and associated data files that the agency can download. The Web-based reports available to an agency can be sorted in a variety of ways for analyzing test taking activities. The agency, for example, can view test taking activities over a selected range of dates, within selected categories of tests, or they can view success/failure rates for individual questions or entire categories.
Our Mission is to create and deliver excellent computer-based testing, vocational training, continuing education and consulting services worldwide.
