The CITO Examination System

Dutch schools all are online, which opens possibilities for a fully web based assessment system. But what is online? Cito has to deal with a wide variety in bandwidths, intranet systems, firewalls, and proxy servers. Furthermore, schools use a mix of Operation Systems, Media Players, and Browser applications. Under these circumstances Cito has to deliver multimedia examinations with video fragments and sound tracks simultaneously to 200.000 candidates. How can this be done? Cito managed to develop an Assessment system for a range of Microsoft Operation Systems (W95 to XP) for both stand-alone situations and local area networks. The Cito Examination System does not need third party applications for browsing or multimedia presentation. Distribution of multimedia test packages and data return of test results can be handled by installing and returning files or by automated synchronization techniques with the central Cito Data Server. The test content is readable only during test taking by a candidate. Test packages and test data are encrypted, and transmission of files over the Internet is secured by the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
