Simexams.com Computer Based Test Software Update

Simexams.com recently updated it’s Computer Based Test software to support remote proctoring. Remote proctoring enables candidates to write an exam from the comfort of home or any location with network access to user’s computer. It enables organizations to conduct an exam remotely and observe the candidate for any fraud or cheating during the exam.

The software includes several features, including Online/Offline mode (in off-line mode, remote proctoring is not supported), exam configuration, authoring, and centralized reporting and exam delivery.
