Leading assessment platform ExamSoft, part of the Turnitin family, announced the acquisition of iSchoolConnect’s (iSC’s) proctoring and assessment technology to help institutions efficiently conduct and uphold the integrity of remote online assessments.
iSC launched its technology platform in 2017 to support international student admissions and enrollment. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, iSC adapted their technology platform to deliver proctoring services at scale. Since its launch in March 2020, the updated iSC platform has helped education institutions, technology and service providers, and businesses to proctor more than 3 million exams.
iSchoolConnect’s proctoring technology is integrated in ExamSoft’s services, giving millions of exam-takers the option to take tests from the comfort and convenience of their homes. “Using iSchoolConnect proctoring technology in combination with our assessment platform ensures we can flexibly and efficiently support our clients’ exam proctoring needs,” says Britt Nichols, SVP of ExamSoft. “As institutions increasingly embrace remote and hybrid learning environments and turn to ExamSoft as their partner in assessment with integrity, iSC’s solution adds additional value and options to our robust assessment capabilities.”
“The acquisition by ExamSoft validates iSchoolConnect as an emerging player in the EdTech space,” said Ashish Fernando, CEO of iSchoolConnect. “We are thrilled to see our proctoring technology complement the ExamSoft assessment platform and look forward to refocusing iSchoolConnect on our mission to help higher education institutions revamp their enrollment and engagement processes.”
