TestReach is an enterprise SaaS solution used to run online tests and examinations. It is transforming how examinations are used in financial services by providing innovative and easy-to-use functionality to create, run, mark and report on tests.
TestReach also includes the option to run exams using remote invigilation. This is where the exam-hall environment is recreated online, and a candidate sitting an important exam or test is monitored over-the-web by a trained TestReach supervisor in real-time. This can be used on a ‘spot-check’ basis to enhance compliance with test rules.
TestReach takes corporate assessment to a new level in terms of depth of functionality, flexibility and ease of use, and ensures you have the robust data to prove regulatory compliance is understood and adhered to in your organisation.
Financial Services Companies use TestReach for All Assessment Requirements
TestReach enables organisations to have a streamlined process for the creation and running of compliance tests and exams. With our remote invigilation option, you can also verify that the correct person presented to complete a knowledge test and that there was no cheating, meaning that the result of the exam is an accurate reflection on what the person knows. This is of crucial importance in the area of regulatory compliance.
By running tests before, during and after training interventions and events, including monitoring confidence levels as well as knowledge, the company gains great insights into the effectiveness of training and any knowledge gaps that need to be addressed. You can then more effectively align the competencies and skills of employees with key performance indicators.
TestReach enables organisations to run applicant screening tests in a fast, flexible and innovative way, which is a great bonus in a competitive job market. The use of TestReach remote invigilation allows financial services companies to run recruitment tests for any candidates at any location worldwide, giving candidates flexibility while preventing impersonation and cheating.

Our end-to-end exam management system enables you to author and create tests easily and deliver them on any device. Our detailed marking module will auto-score questions and issue detailed reports and analytics. You can use the option of remote invigilation to authenticate and monitor the candidate, which increases the validity and security of the exam, and the value of your certification.
Assessment Tools from TestReach
Collaborative Question Authoring
TestReach enables financial services organisations to streamline the creation of regulatory knowledge and compliance questions and easily manage and structure the question bank. No matter how many writers are included in the authoring process, or where they are located, our clear workflows enable a structured approach to the review process.
Secure Computer Lockdown and Randomised Questions
The use of randomised papers and questions, test timers and secure computer lockdown enable organisations to run secure tests that give valid results. With TestReach you can automatically generate test papers according to certain rules applied to questions, so that each person sitting a test gets a unique paper but at the same difficulty level. This reduces the chance of conferring and again gives a better reflection on the actual knowledge of an employee. By locking down the computer while the exam is on, the candidate cannot click out of the TestReach application to check facts online or copy your valuable content.
Secure Exam Delivery & Remote Invigilation
For high-stakes exams, organisations can deliver exams online using our integral remote invigilation, which enables candidates to sit a secure exam from any location, while being monitored over-the-web by a trained TestReach invigilator. This can be used on a ‘spot-check’ basis to enhance compliance with test rules, and increases the validity of results and compliance reports. This is convenient for candidates who can take their exam at home or in their office. This is also very useful for international recruitment, and you can read more about our recruitment solutions here.
Marking, Moderation and Reporting
The majority of TestReach question types can be auto-scored, but for exams that require manual marking TestReach has a comprehensive marking module, supported by a range of comprehensive reports and all activity is audit-trailed. There is a full suite of analytics to present statistical information on results data, as well as multiple candidate feedback options. With our open API, this data integrates seamlessly with your existing systems.
