What is Aptis Remote?
Your go-to test during this pandemic. You can now take your test from home with Aptis Remote!
Aptis Remote offers a safe and convenient way of secure testing. It combines the benefits of online testing with video monitoring to ensure a secure experience and reliable results. Aptis Remote has the same format, structure and timing as a standard Aptis test.
With the remote method, Aptis is delivered on the Janison Insights platform. Candidates will be monitored using test-tracking software, ProctorTrack, which they will need to download onto their computer before the test is taken.
Aptis Remote - how we ensure security
Before the test day, the candidate needs to verify their identity and do a face scan.
On the test day, ProctorTrack will carry out a final identity check, record a video of the candidate while taking the test and provide alerts on unusual activities which are reviewed after the test by our test administrators. These additional levels of security ensure accuracy of results with a fast turnaround.
