Pearson VUE applies robust security measures to ensure not only exam credibility, but client and candidate credibility, too. In addition to being more secure, computer-based testing is considered the most efficient and effective way to assess.
Most candidates use a computer every day, whether at home or at work, and find it quicker to answer questions using CBT. The method also allows them to edit their answers quickly and clearly; thereby reducing ambiguity and allowing for faster exam scoring.
Pearson VUE’s test delivery software will save your responses every 30 seconds, so if there is a power outage your answers can be retrieved.
Pearson VUE test centers are proctored environments. The admission process is designed to prevent proxy testing–IDs are checked and the electronic photo and signature of the candidate is captured. Unlike traditional testing environments, Pearson VUE centers are designed to be distraction-free with ample space between candidates – enabling them to better focus on their test.
Most exams can be sat on-demand, allowing candidates to test throughout the year at a date and location most convenient to them.
Most candidates receive their results instantly, allowing them to make immediate plans regarding the next stage of their education or career.
Each Pearson VUE test center complies with disability-related legislation. Most centers are equipped with separate rooms and offer facilities such as height adjustable desks.
