TestNow™, an OpenEDG Testing Service

TestNow is an online test delivery system owned, developed, and maintained by OpenEDG, the Open Education and Development Group. The system has been designed to make it as easy as possible for test candidates to take OpenEDG C++ Institute exams online, directly in a web browser, and provide both the security and integrity of the exam through the use of the AI-developed monitoring algorithms.

OpenEDG C++ Institute exams available via TestNow are administered worldwide via OpenEDG Online Proctoring Service and through the network of OpenEDG Testing Service Partners (schools, colleges, universities, and training organizations). Before taking an exam, please read these Testing Policies and consult Exam Information to ensure which delivery mode applies to your exam. By default, the OpenEDG Online Proctoring Service delivery mode applies to all the C++ Institute's entry-level exams taken by candidates through testing programs not affiliated with a school, college, university, or training organization.
