Improve Your Testing Experience with Internet-Based Testing (iBT)
To improve the testing experience for institutions and test-takers, CLEP will transition its 33 exams from the current eCBT platform to the more sophisticated Internet-based testing (iBT) platform. Test-takers will be able to register for exams and manage their personal account information through the My Account feature on the CLEP website. This new feature will simplify the registration activities that need to be performed by test center administrators (TCAs). iBT automatically downloads all pertinent information about the test session from My Account. The check-in process will be more streamlined than in eCBT. There is no longer a need for TCAs to collect profile or payment information as is necessary in eCBT.
Key Benefits of Using iBT
Here are some of the many benefits you will enjoy using the new iBT platform:
- Sophisticated testing platform with contemporary design
- Stable performance with reduced software challenges
- Simplified TCA check-in process
- Reduced time for administrative activities on test day
- Test platform integrated with the CLEP website
- Automated software distribution to replace shipment of CDs
