NAATI Testing Solutions

Total testing solutions: Hosting and creation of online, hybrid and in-person tests or venue hire for your business

As the national standards and certifying authority for translators and interpreters, we understand the importance of safe, secure and reliable testing solutions.

We also understand that it can be challenging to build up internal capability to offer testing, even utilising the services of an online exam platform. It can be even more challenging and costly to manage testing, risk and good customer experience if your business or institution only runs testing a few times a year or less.

NAATI Testing Solutions (NAATI) offers your business or education institution control over the things that matter, but with expertise support to create, host, and securely deliver tests or exams without having to worry about venues, online platforms, and secure proctoring (supervision). We’ll work with your specific needs and provide guidance so you can focus on your core business and leave the testing to us – from as little as AU$50 per candidate for hosting and invigilation.

Contact us via the simple form below to discuss your unique testing needs, and we can help make your exam rounds less stressful and more secure for you and your candidates.

NAATI is a not-for-profit company, owned by the Australian Commonwealth, state and territory governments, and has been conducting professional certification tests since 1977. We ran over 22,000 tests in 89 countries in 2022 via our digital platforms utilising advanced exam and proctoring software and our dedicated testing venues in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane.

NAATI was originally formed to support the post World War II migration boom by ensuring high national standards for the interpreting and translating profession, but we have come a long way since then.

Our significant investment into our testing infrastructure to meet our own requirements has allowed NAATI to offer services to external companies that are seeking testing solutions either in physical venues or through online platforms. The strength of NAATI’s testing capability has been highlighted recently as our online testing platform providers, Televic, were finalists in the e-Assessment awards 2023.

We have hundreds of invigilators, supervisors, role players, and technical support staff that deliver testing daily, so you can be assured that your exams are in safe hands.

NAATI digital testing utilises the AssessmentQ  platform which is owned and developed by Televic Education. The platform is ISO 27001 (international standard for information security) compliant, and data is retained on Australian servers.

To ensure test security and prevent candidates from attempting to gain an unfair advantage we utilise Proctor Exam, a top 5 proctoring solution owned by Turnitin, the American-based company renowned for their anti-plagiarism tools used by 15,000+ institutions. Turnitin also meets ISO 27001 standards.

NAATI security is aligned with the Australian Cyber Security Centre’s Essential 8 maturity level 3 standard.

These platforms and their integration have been rigorously tested in tens of thousands of real-world examinations.
