Onscreen testing

Find out more about onscreen testing, an alternative to traditional, paper-based assessments.

An onscreen test is run on a computer. The assessment is more enjoyable for the candidate and more flexible for centres than paper-based testing, but is designed and validated with the same rigour as a traditional test. You can download free, sample tests to help familiarise your students with the look and feel of an onscreen test.

We offer onscreen tests for BTEC and Edexcel Functional Skills qualifications.

  • The Pearson Onscreen Platform is used to deliver onscreen tests. To choose the version of the onscreen platform that best suits your needs and to find out more about installation and how to start delivering onscreen, go to the Pearson Onscreen Platform page.  

Key benefits

All onscreen tests offer:

  • free software installation, training and technical support
  • improved accessibility and less paper-based administration
  • on-demand testing: tests can be taken when learners are ready.
