What is ScoreKeeper?
ScoreKeeper is a web-based tool used by test administrators to manage test batches, download test materials, and view test scores.
What if I do not want my candidates/employees to see their scores?

What is Ordinate Technology?
The patented Ordinate technology is based on years of research in speech recognition, statistical modelling, linguistics, and testing theory. The technology, which powers the Versant testing system, uses a speech recognition system that is specifically designed to analyse speech components from native and non-native speakers of English. In addition to recognising words, the system also locates and evaluates relevant segments, syllables, and phrases in speech. The Versant testing system then uses statistical modelling techniques to assess the spoken performance.
