What is SecurExam?

Securexam is a test administration tool that CSCC has employed in our testing center to make our College's online testing services more secure. Securexam provides us with two major security features:

  • Securexam prevents students from accessing web pages outside of the Blackboard exam.
  • Securexam automatically enters the password into Blackboard so the student never needs to see or be exposed to it.
