Pearson VUE and IDEMIA advance ID verification in computer-based testing
Minneapolis, MN, March 18, 2019 — Pearson VUE, the global leader in computer-based-testing, and IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity, have partnered to develop and deploy enhanced ID verification solutions across Pearson VUE’s robust range of secure global test delivery options, used by leading credentialing organizations around the world.
This partnership aligns two market leaders in their pursuit of effective and accurate identity verification for both in-person and remote testing, which further expands Pearson VUE’s ability to protect the integrity and value of high stakes credential exams. IDEMIA’s in-person verification technology, currently deployed in Pearson VUE’s highly secure Professional Centers, automatically checks multiple security features embedded in a test-taker’s identification document to ensure it has not been altered or is not counterfeit.
Additionally, IDEMIA will provide Pearson VUE identity verification technology for remote online test-takers by scanning their physical driver’s license or government-issued ID. This information is then instantly compared against the data in the IDEMIA document library to validate the authenticity of the license or ID, efficiently authorizing the candidate’s identity to prevent identity manipulation.
Pearson VUE and IDEMIA are showcasing these new applications of enhanced ID verification for both in-person and online proctoring, using Pearson VUE’s new online proctoring solution, OnVUE, at the annual Association of Test Publishers conference in Orlando, Florida.
The power of working with IDEMIA is that they help us expand how we verify candidates’ identities from the very start of the registration process through the testing event itself, seamlessly bringing additional security and authorization levels to prevent fraud in high-stakes exams. At Pearson VUE, IDEMIA solutions have proven effective across our test delivery models from our centers to online exams.
As the global leader in identity security, IDEMIA is pleased to provide the highest level of identity verification for Pearson VUE’s testing solutions. IDEMIA’s proven physical and digital identity solutions bring a new level of security to computer-based testing. By partnering with a known leader like Pearson VUE, IDEMIA further increases its leadership in identity proofing and authentication.
