Implement BYOD Test Solutions
Take advantage of the explosive popularity of consumer mobile devices. Use TAO to reduce your assessment delivery cost by implementing Bring Your Own Device solutions.
Schedule Tests for Online Deliveries
Allow access through any standard web browser, including lock-down browsers. Schedule test delivery in advance for individual or groups of candidates. You can also set timing constraints for test availability, duration of tests, and maximum attempts.
Customize Your Workflows
Since TAO is Open Source and completely customizable, you have the freedom to design your own custom workflows to meet the particular assessment needs of your organization.
Scale from Classroom to Nationwide
TAO’s test delivery engine is built on a NoSQL data storage model, enabling you to scale with confidence from classroom to nationwide. If a test is unexpectedly interrupted, TAO’s built-in fail-safe ensures that candidates resume the test exactly where they paused.
Rostering & Reporting
Enter candidate data directly into TAO, or import it from a CSV file. Then, verify test-takers’ identity with usernames and passwords through TAO, or via third party applications that support the OAuth standard, enabling single-sign-on (SSO) through an LMS like Moodle.
Manage and Control User Access
Define user profiles based on roles and responsibilities. Assign and restrict access to user functions as well as item and test content, ensuring your test data is fully protected.
Run reports on individual test-takers or groups. Export raw test results to third-party statistical analysis and reporting tools. You can even report to various stakeholders with custom-designed data sets.
