The LanguageCert difference: Reliability, Innovation & Security in English language certifications.

The LanguageCert difference: Reliability, Innovation & Security in English language certifications.

LanguageCert, 11 January 2022

LanguageCert has been providing candidates with the opportunity to take high-stakes exams online and securely since 2019 and has transformed the exam-taking experience, making it secure, accessible, and tailored to the needs of individual candidates. This is the LanguageCert difference.

Instant or on demand delivery is fast becoming the norm across all industries, institutions, and service providers. This concept is connected to technology that needs to be not only most fast, flexible, and reliable, but importantly secure and credible. And it is no different for English language exams.

Test takers now expect a combination of the above standards, mixed with the validity and quality standards applied in traditional classroom and/ or paper-based exams.

Who is LanguageCert?
LanguageCert was the first to market with Online exams with live proctoring in 2019, offering candidates the opportunity to take their English language exams from an appropriate location of their choice, anytime, with a live trained proctor.

Since its launch, LanguageCert has focused on constantly improving a candidates’ online exam experience, all the while ensuring that candidate exam performance online remains identical to their performance if they sat their exam in a more traditional environment.

The LanguageCert difference
What sets LanguageCert apart, is that the same team of top experts prepare each type of our exams, be it paper-based, computer-based, or online proctored. Each exam format contains similar content and structure, regardless of the delivery method.

The exam experience, technology and methodology are consistently reviewed and upgraded to ensure that candidates have the greatest online exam experience possible.

LanguageCert's parent company, PeopleCert, designed and implemented this online proctoring solution in 2013, testing it on many thousands of candidates worldwide. This proprietary, cutting-edge software guides candidates through the exam process, making sure that their experience is comfortable and stress-free while maintaining the highest security standards.

LanguageCert’s innovative and secure process
Candidates are identified by an online invigilator through a secure ID process and are monitored unobtrusively throughout, to ensure that the testing environment meets PeopleCert/ LanguageCert’ s security standards.

All candidates install ExamShield, PeopleCert’s award-winning security software, that locks down their device and ensures that strict security is in place throughout.

Simultaneously, a series of compatibility checks make sure that all necessary device functions, such as microphone, sound, and camera, are working correctly.

Once connected online to a trained proctor, further ID checks take place, and candidates are asked to perform a 360-degree webcam rotation of the room they are in to ensure no inappropriate material is present.

Any issues identified are addressed before the exam can proceed. The online invigilator is always available to support candidates if needed.

This is another obvious difference and advantage. The online proctors are employed by PeopleCert and are carefully selected and trained to provide secure, responsive, and appropriate live online proctoring service.

The booking system is flexible and tailored to a candidate’s personal schedule, while the whole process is simple, secure, and reliable with results available in just three working days.

Successful candidates are awarded an e-certificate, hard-copy certificate, and digital badge. The whole approach is designed to make taking LanguageCert exams as accessible and friendly as possible while maintaining security and offering international recognition.

“A more personal way of taking a test”
LanguageCert conducted a study earlier this year to see what previous test takers had to say after taking our Online proctored exams. Survey responses revealed that candidates felt their experiences offered them a “more personalised, as well as a more efficient way of taking a test”.

Overall, answers to the survey were positive, showing a clear preference for LanguageCert online proctored exams as an alternative to traditional exam setting.

“You offer candidates opportunity to take an internationally recognised, Ofqual regulated high-stakes English language exams when we want, where we want” said a test taker.
