Business

Cairnmead Industrial Consultants (Pty) Ltd

Our company used online assessment software before. The first choice of Microsoft Forms proved to be far from perfect. The biggest issue was that it required grading tests by hand, which took a lot of time. Testportal made this serious problem a thing of the past.

Microsoft Teams app

Privacy first approach. Superior result reliability.

Forget about strict, stressful and expensive proctoring. Testportal online supervising is easy and non-invasive.

Keep an eye on your respondents without stressing them out. This feature lets you detect dishonest behavior and see which questions prompted it. If they re-offend, it can also cut off their test access.

Mercer | Mettle is an all-in-one remote testing solution for education. It supports a variety of exams and integrates with most major LMS software.

It also features non-invasive Honest Respondent Technology, which tracks cheating attempts.

Don't settle for mediocrity. Instead, choose a better alternative to ClassMarker. Testportal gives you reliable results with its smart proctoring. It also features better test delivery and superior security. It is simply an excellent insight engine with solid metrics and graphs to facilitate drawing actionable conclusions.
