Secure Online Testing for a State Civil Services Exams in the United States

At Excelsoft we started to build a online test for, mostly formative assessments. This was in early 2000. This was in parallel to us building our Learning Management system.

However, we are one of the most trusted and preferred Companies you for your high stakes and secure test design and delivery.

We currently work with several Universities for conducting their Entrance tests, in India and Overseas. We are delivering a large scale State Civil services Examinations. Helping them going from paper & pen exams, to most parts already automated and tested to go live.

We have delivered an end-end automation from Item Authoring, Managing item Banks, Test construction, test delivery, response processing and for announcement of Results.

This has involved complete work flow, high level of Application and data security requirements, and training to handhold users, provide support at all times.

This project also involves third party integration, etc. While technically it is elaborate, the number of members we have had to interface are numerous. Hence, “Requirement Gathering” and frequent interactions to converge, and the solution design team worked closely with various stakeholders.

This required involvement of our best minds in the area of Cloud services, Optimal data mode design, Usability testing, Test Automation, Performance optimisation to meet the performance “Service levels committed” in our contract. Load testing to meet concurrency targets.

We are proud to be chosen as their partners from amongst competition. I am looking forward to completing the Project. It has been a great learning experience for us and hope that the user experience will be intuitive.

Team Excelsoft has also learned a lot of process knowledge & experience, building strong relationships with all key stakeholders on the management and leadership.

This has been truly enterprise class design, development of implementation of a comprehensive testing platform. Highly customised too.
