Test Scramblizer, Ramsay CorporationTest question scrambler

The newly developed Scramblizer by Ramsay Corporation allows online administration of test questions in a randomized order, so each test taker sees a different arrangement of test questions. The scrambling of test questions discourages cheating while allowing the use of computers in close proximity. With each test showing the questions in a different sequence, memorization of answers is discouraged in order to avoid communicating those answers to others. The tests are machine-scored without the possibility of hand-scoring errors. With the answers on each item reported in their original order, test administrators can easily compare test-takers’ results.
