Develop Exams Securely

Pull security directly to the forefront of your development process with Scorpion’s fortified interface and security-centric item and test designs.

Popular Features:

Proprietary Secure Item Types

Combat and neutralize the effects of theft, pre-knowledge, and cheating with our patented item types—Discrete Option Multiple Choice™ (DOMC) and SmartItem™ tech.

Secure Test Designs

Limit the effects of pre-knowledge and other forms of cheating with test designs like SmartItems, Linear on-the-fly testing (LOFT), and Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT).

Automated Item Generation (AIG)

Quickly develop large item pools with Caveon AIG for secure test designs like CAT and LOFT. Increase your number of forms & republish exams in the event of a breach.

Role & Permission-based Access

Changes to your exam are logged & timestamped—and each individual can only access content that they’re permitted to. Simply grant or revoke access as needed.

Deliver Exams Securely

Scorpion’s delivery features add layer upon layer of security to every test administration.

Popular Features:


Every item of a Scorpion exam is automatically (and undetectably) watermarked, allowing testing program administrators to identify and root out thieves in the event that live test content is exposed and shared online.

Enhanced Proctor Controls

Give your proctoring team the extra support they need. Real-time event logging and alerts provide proctors the tools they need to intervene in the event of suspicious activity, or simply to help troubleshoot a technology issue.

Security Rules

Enable “feedback mode” and provide context as well as correct & incorrect response information during a formative exam. Go even further by setting up automatic alerts for specific test-taker behavior triggersno secure testing browser downloads required.

Securely Proctor

While you should always employ preventative security strategies to minimize the need to rely on a proctoring solution, Scorpion integrates with many leading proctoring vendors and secures your test content and data.

Screenshots of your secure testing browser
Create, deliver, and manage your exams 100% online, no software downloads required.

Manage Exams Securely

Scorpion’s direct access to exam control and program data gives you the tools and insight necessary to ensure test security.

Popular Features:

Complete Control

Scorpion puts you in complete control of all content, instruction, survey, agreements, and other exam-related material. Publish, then tweak content while your exam is live. Scorpion’s versioning controls allow you to rapidly react to real-time changes.

Well-stocked Data Pantry

Some vendors charge separately for the kinds of data Scorpion gives all its users—or they don’t provide it at all. Access psychometric data and other key data points that allow you to gauge the health of your exams, items, and testing program.

Role & Permission-based Access

Flexible roles allow administrators to program certain permissions for SMEs, other permissions for proctors and administrators, and even on-site exam administrators the access to manage groups of examinees in bulk during their exam experience.

Instant Results & API Connections

Whether you want to create a certificate, email a score report, or send results to your candidate management system, Scorpion’s extensive API and webhook system allow you to take immediate action once a candidate is finished with their exam.
