New version of Gilly 0.91 is available, it is compatible with Confluence 3.4 (which was released in Oct) and also adds a new feature to allow subscription to exams from confluence which was requested by few users who used 0.91

A new menu item Available Exams is also added in the Dashboard and Browse menu to view available exams which can be subscribed. This is going to help the use cases where you will setup few exams upfront for your employees and they can take the exams anytime they want.

Proctoring agency support in EduBrite Assessment Solution

This weekend we released our proctoring agency and test center support for the Assessment and Certification solution. This would be of immense help to those who want to experience the huge benefits of conducting online testing and assessment as a SaaS model but at the same time want that extra security to ensure that all tests are taken fairly.

The use of the proctoring agency feature is extremely simple. EduBrite sets up the information regarding the proctoring agency and its test centers in consultation with the company or institute who wants to conduct their assessment. While setting up the exam, one or more test centers from the available list can be designated for this purpose. Test center administrators would need to unlock using their username and password for a candidate to take the test.
