What is computer-based testing?

A computer-based test refers to delivering exam assessments online on computers as an alternative to using pen and paper. In this context, we speak about computer-based exams using our computer-aided facilities, and our exam venues all over Switzerland.

We have been providing computer-based assessments since 2006 and were awarded in 2015 by Cambridge English (Part of the University of Cambridge) for the pioneering role and excellence in offering Cambridge English computer-based exams.

Today, we provide on-site computer-based testing for exams like Cambridge English, IELTS, Linguaskill, and TCF throughout Switzerland.

Why choose computer-based exams over paper exams

We have here a few relevant points for you!

  • Candidates receive faster access to results online within 2-3 weeks after taking the exam (which means they get their certificate in 8 weeks)
  • The online timer and help functions (i.e., word count) allow students to get the best performance (less stressful for most students not having to go through their text)
  • Exam-takers can edit their answers during the exam and highlight important parts (makes it more practical than having to erase and rewrite)
  • Candidates can adjust the volume for the listening part to suit their needs as they use headphones (less distraction, less stress, more focus)

And now we have even more dates available for Cambridge English Exams! Check the exam dates for 2024. Are tese dates not convenient for your class? We can find a more suitable solution. Get in touch with us!

You can choose from locations like Zürich, Winterthur, Luzern, Basel, Lausanne, Chur, Bern, St. Gallen or Geneva.

What sets on-site computer-based exams from remote-proctored online testing apart?

On-site exams

Candidates sit their exams in a location and at a time we provide. Therefore, candidates go to a location to sit their exam on the computer. They are supervised in a prepared exam hall. All they need to do is to arrive as requested and write the test on the computer.

Remote-proctored online testing

Candidates do not take their exam from a designated place/time but decide themselves where/when they would like to take their test. Candidates are still guided to and through their online exam assessment step-by-step, but they are responsible for their "exam room" being set up as required. We still take care of the administrative side of things from the registration to the result, give clear instructions and guidelines, and guarantee full security and data standards.

One of the most highly reliable online exam solutions is Linguaskill, which boasts the added advantage of being powered by AI.

Why Linguaskill?

New technology like Artificial Intelligence (AI) allows organisations to provide assessment anywhere and at any time while guaranteeing full security standards. Here are just a couple of benefits for candidates and organisations:

  • fast results (from 24 hours to 3 working days)
  • exam can be taken anywhere
  • exam can be taken at anytime (every candidate is different, some can focus better in the mornings, others in the evenings)
  • it is a worldwide recognised exam by Cambridge
