How can a testing program know if their test is being administered properly—if the test administrators and test takers are following the rules? The answer is simple. The only effective method for understanding if your security policies are working during test administration is to be there when it happens.


Monitoring in-person assessment administration achieves a number of valuable goals, including:


By placing a monitor directly in the locations where test administration occurs, you can detect attempts at cheating and theft as they happen and respond immediately (plus, an eye-witness account of wrongdoing never hurts).


Monitoring assessment administrations acts as a strong deterrent for anyone—including administrators and proctors—who might attempt to commit test fraud or steal your test content. It sends a clear message: We’re paying attention.


Keeping your ear to the ground is an important part of test security. Monitoring helps you collect valuable data on whether your test administrators are properly prepared, your test takers are following the rules, and your processes are working as planned.


After monitoring is completed, you’ll have gathered a wealth of data to help you make actionable improvements to your test administration procedures. Measure trending threats over time and ensure that your security practices are effective and cutting-edge.

Don’t just take our word for it:

“Each year, the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) implements rigorous test security protocols as a means of protecting the integrity of statewide assessment results—Since the spring of 2017, the LDOE has partnered with Caveon to place highly-trained Caveon monitors in the most at-risk schools. These monitors provide real-time monitoring feedback via Caveon Core. Caveon Core provides the only real-time view into testing rooms, therefore allowing the LDOE to quickly address concerns. Caveon Core’s flexible format allows the LDOE to collect data on the information that is most important. Additionally, Caveon Core’s ability to accurately quantify the monitoring data allows the LDOE to track all incidents and quickly react to monitoring trends.”
