ADE®, Castle’s item authoring, and banking tool offers a powerful online platform for reliable, thoroughly documented, and secure item and test development. Fully integrated with our test delivery system, ADE® allows Castle psychometric staff to work with client representatives to manage examination forms through development, delivery, and maintenance in a seamless manner. The tool supports geographically dispersed, asynchronous examination form creation, review, and approval, thereby eliminating travel expenses in many instances. Through ADE®, examination forms are assembled to test specifications, and item performance statistics are readily available. Unmatched in the market, ADE® is highly configurable and user-friendly, reducing training time and increasing productivity. Recently, a client shared upon becoming an ADE® user, “this is the most elegant piece of software I’ve ever seen”.
Castle PASS is a secure internet-based test delivery system. Developed and maintained by Castle’s software engineers, the system leverages today’s testing technologies to support a variety of delivery options. The proprietary software is used exclusively by Castle clients and is hosted by Castle. Castle PASS is maintained in state-of-the-art redundant architecture and is hosted in an enterprise-class data center that ensures the reliability and security required by the most demanding credentialing organizations.
And, because Castle has designed our system to be Internet-based delivery rather than computer-based delivery, Castle PASS never exposes more than one item at a time during the entire test administration process. The test center is never presented the entire examination all at once as is the case with other vendor systems.
Castle Connect® offers clients an online credentialing and candidate management system (CMS) that serves as a single point of access to connect the candidate, credentialing organization, Castle, and other stakeholder partners to facilitate a client’s various credentialing needs. Castle Connect® also offers you a configurable and cost-effective solution for program and data management.
In addition to our test delivery system, Castle offers you the best internet browser lockdown tool available anywhere. Castle ContentLockTM, designed in-house by high-stakes testing experts, provides optimal testing environment security during a testing appointment.
