Browser Check for Candidates
Cirrus offers candidates a browser check on the introduction page of their exam.
Security settings: Using Cirrus within a locked-down environment and PIN
When delivering high stakes exams, extra layers of security can be added.
- Cirrus offers options like using a PIN code to start the assessment, randomising questions and/or answer options per candidates, using blue print et cetera. We also recommend the use of a 'PIN' for extra security.
- A so called ‘Lock-down browser’ can ensure that a candidate cannot exit the browser window while the assessment is in progress.
- Online invigilation: remote proctoring
To use this option, you will need to perform a check on whether the examination facilities and your Cirrus setup support this extra layer of security.
- Safe Exam Browser: Cirrus provides standard integration with Safe Exam Browser, one of the most used and trusted ways of ensuring safe delivery of exams. Drop us a line if your are interested in our Safe Exam Browser manual.
- Online proctoring using ProctorU, an online proctoring service which takes invigilation to an even higher level.
