New Releases - High Security Browser Made Just for Testing and Assessment
Question Mark Corp. has released Perception Secure Browser (PSB) for delivering high-value content, such as exams and tests, over the Web. It is like any other browser except that all the menus, icons, control keys and the "right-click" options have been removed. It initially links to a specific URL; then limits navigation to the links within the Web page displayed.
PSB stops users from printing information, copying it into applications to pass onto others, or viewing the source of the HTML documents. Tests can be displayed on a full screen without the buttons and menu items usually displayed in a browser. While taking the test, PSB prevents accessing URLs and other programs on the PC. It runs with Windows 95, 98 or NT. Prices are structured according to the number of users, with special discounts for schools, colleges and universities. PSB is designed for use in conjunction with Question Mark's Perception software suite for online assessment. Question Mark Corp., Stamford, CT, (800) 863-3950, www.questionmark.com.
