There was a big question mark about letting applicants complete ability tests online remotely. Was the applicant actually doing the test themselves. To combat this it was recommended that all applicants invited for interview were retested on the day of the interview. Sounds like hard work!!
There is now a online tool called Verify which enables online ability tests while combating the outlined problem. It offers a new superior approach to unsupervised online testing.
