Taking a peek at the future GMAT
6/28/2007


No, this is neither fiction nor a figment of our imagination.

You might of heard of the “GMAT on wheels”, but this new medium is true “home delivery” of the GMAT.

This untethered approach would allow even a soldier in Iraq and a Peace Corps volunteer in Ghana to take the test on her PC, monitored by a special camera made by Software Secure, a Cambridge (MA, USA) based company. The software locks a computer while the student takes an online test, disallowing any searches or file access during the testing. It includes biometric authentication and audio/video recording that can be later played by an instructor at an “offshore” center.

The software raises flags whenever extraneous noise and motion beyond a threshold level are detected, and the instructor can replay the audio and video to check all the flagged instances. The instructor can then check to see if there is any correlation between the flagged events and discrepancies in scores, periods of inactivity, scores, or other unexpected behavior of the test-taker.

So now you can turn your home into a GMAT testing center. Broadband connection required.
