All-in-One Exam Development Tool

Scorpion™ is the test development hub of the Caveon Testing Platform. It was created by testing professionals, for testing professionals—with exam security in mind. After spending more than a decade in test development, our lead developer saw first-hand how the limitations and archaic features of existing test development tools were impeding test programs. We wanted to create a tool that makes developing exams easier and more secure, not more complicated. The result? A straightforward, powerful exam builder—designed with your needs in mind.

Need a complete development and delivery solution?

Scorpion was designed to work seamlessly with the rest of the Caveon Testing Platform. SEI™, Caveon’s Test Delivery Hub, picks right up where test development leaves off. Blueprint, build, review, and edit your exams, then turn around and seamlessly publish, deliver, perform maintenance, run reports, analyze your data, and score your exams—all within Caveon’s Testing Platform. But that’s not all. Caveon’s technology also supports rapid, cost-effective item pool expansion using AIG powered by SmartItems. Generate thousands of item instances at the push of a button, then view and export your items with ease. Use Caveon’s full suite of testing tools for a complete, end-to-end solution, or use only what you need. Caveon’s development, delivery, and AIG tools are easy to migrate and work with all major third-party vendors. We’d love to strengthen your program in any way we can.

Need a tool that’s actually easy to use?

There’s a good chance that Scorpion is the only development tool your team will ever want to use again. We say that because we hear it often. Some tools require weeks-long training sessions; this test development hub requires virtually no training at all, saving your entire team a ton of time. Gone are the days of building the scaffolding of complex items on the back-end with the help of developers. Build complex and innovative item types such as matching, build list, and DOMC with minimal hand-holding. Simply enter your content into items, then let the system do the scoring for you. Item Writers, Managers, and Editors will all be able to find features that will make their jobs easier, including the power to build SmartItems and generate thousands of unique item iterations at the push of a button.  

Don’t force your SMEs, writers, and editors to spend unnecessary time focusing on the steps it takes to create an item. Free them up to create high-quality items using their rich knowledge and experience.
