Software Designed by Scantron
At Scantron, we use our own system for test delivery. PASS was developed and is continually maintained by Scantron software engineers to take advantage of today’s technologies. PASS is proprietary software and is hosted exclusively by Scantron for all our delivery options – including our testing sites such as DeVore, our practice test environment, and our online, remote proctoring solutions. The reliability of PASS is greater than 99.9%.
PASS supports advanced-item formats such as hot spot, drag-and-drop, simulation, case study, and content sets. It displays rich media, captures oral responses, and supports more than 26 languages for true global reach.
Internet-based Testing versus Computer-based Testing
PASS is a secure Internet-based testing system. Secure Internet-based Testing (IBT) has the following advantages versus Computer-based Testing (CBT):
- Immediate examination content uploads
- High-speed delivery to an infinite number of test sites located anywhere in the world
- Minimal site hardware requirements
- No content “footprints” left on the delivery computer or at the site via distributed servers.
Computer Testing Worldwide
The Scantron testing software allows us to distribute certification and licensure examinations online anywhere in the world that has Internet access.
Ease of Use
PASS is very easy to use. The demonstration module walks candidates through all of the system’s features and functionalities and allows them to become completely familiar with the system. In addition, PASS permits candidates to mark items for review, go to previously answered items, go to specific items, and review answers before submitting the test for scoring.
