Janison Exam Management (JEM) is the exam services arm of the ASX-listed education technology company Janison, created when Janison bought LTC in 2019.

LTC was an Australian exam and testing management company established in May 1988 which served educational institutions, professional bodies and individual candidates from all over the world. It was purchased by the Janison Education Group in 2019 and has since been renamed Janison Exam Management.

Invigilators are exam supervisors who oversee traditional in-person paper-based exams and assessments.

A proctor is an exam supervisor who oversees an exam which is being delivered to a candidate remotely online. Proctors typically use a webcam and other computer-based tools in order to do this.

Hybrid service means a combination of our services are used to deliver an exam, for example a mix of online remote proctoring, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and pen-and-paper exam invigilation. Hybrid service also refers to our scanning services, in which we scan in multiple choice-based exam papers for clients’ optical mark recognition (OMR) systems, as well as our data processing.

This can vary greatly depending on the size and complexity of your exam. As a general rule of thumb, we ideally recommend giving us a minimum of two weeks’ lead time. However, our experienced team is highly flexible and we’ve been able to arrange some exams on short notice in as little as 24 hours. To discuss your needs, contact our team.

To arrange an exam event, we need to know your exam dates, what kind of delivery and supervision services you require, candidate numbers, candidate details, location and any equity accommodations.

Our office reception is open from 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday.

We operate in more than 300 venues globally. Our world-wide network of exam managers and invigilators can set up an exam event in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Europe and the UK (we have even set up and run exam events in Sudan, Africa!). To find out if we cover your location, contact our team.

We keep in mind numerous considerations when selecting our venues, including easily accessible location, sound and acoustics, quality lighting, floor space and appropriate furniture. We take candidates’ safety very seriously and follow our own COVID plan.

Please first check with your educational institution. You also must have photo ID to sit a remote proctored exam.

We understand that exam day can be stressful. Our invigilators are sensitive to the pressure candidates are under and are highly experienced in keeping a calm atmosphere and doing everything possible to ensure your exam runs as smoothly as possible, from the moment you arrive at your venue.
