Multi-Modal Test Delivery

Organizations need a flexible, secure approach to computer-based testing

Why choose multi-modal testing?

Most credentialing organizations operate in a highly competitive and constantly changing environment. The ability to extend your reach, expand your markets and drive revenue opportunities is essential for future success. In these challenging conditions, a flexible approach to online testing is vital.

With a multi-modal solution, candidates are able to access assessments from a range of options:

At a physical test center

In their own home

At their place of work

At a temporary testing location


Depending on the specific needs of your testing program, assessments can be delivered with:

  • On-premise proctors at a testing location
  • Professional remote proctors, for either live or record & review proctoring
  • Flexible combinations of these technologies and testing locations

Is testing comparable across different modalities?

PSI has been delivering multi-modal testing since 2016 with many leading organizations, so this form of testing is not a recent trend. However, many credentialing organizations adopted multi-modal testing in response to COVID-19. This gives us an unprecedented ability to examine trends across multiple programs. The large-scale migration to online assessment provides a wealth of data that strongly supports the adoption of multi-modal testing. Clearly demonstrating:

  • The overwhelming majority of candidates are interested in multi-modal options
  • Satisfaction ratings remain high, regardless of the modality selected
  • Mean scores and pass rates are comparable across modalities
  • There is no increase in malpractice across different modalities
