Release Facilitates School Requirement
Florida Institute of Technology has been eagerly awaiting Software Secure's release of a Remote Proctor for Mac. With this release, the online ABA program will now require all of its new students to use Securexam Remote Proctor for exams. "We made Remote Proctor an optional way for students to take exams last year. Windows users were thrilled with the convenience of using Remote Proctor vs. having to go to a testing center," said Cynthia Schmitt, Director Behavioral Science and Technology, Florida Institute of Technology. "Now that Software Secure supports both Mac and PC, our institution can benefit as much as the users, as the administration of our examination system will become much simpler as we'll only have to support one method: use of Securexam Remote Proctor."
"In order for an institution to responsibly and efficiently expand its distance learning program to more students, it's imperative that they select a computer-based testing solution that can be used on any computer," said CEO Douglas Winneg. "That's why Securexam for Mac is a significant release for our company and our customers," remarked Winneg. "Software Secure has prided itself on providing the most comprehensive solution for ensuring the integrity of computer-testing environments, but with the release for Mac, the Remote Proctor solution has become truly ubiquitous -- making it possible for any student to test from any computer at their convenience."
