Summing Up

With that said above, it will be completely fair to mention that Testofy is not just another online assessment platform but it is also compliant and adheres to the new education policy in India.

AI-based assessments are going to become a mandate in days to come. It is like a disruption and specifically a positive one which will revolutionize the education system very soon. But, it is not all rosy for every institute to comply with or build the required infrastructure to adhere with the new education wave that is going to blow the old school education system and examination structure. Thus, having a solution before it is too late will be worth a dime spending later. 

With the new education policy penetrating in more and more organizations/institutions, they would feel the need to switch to a digital or online assessment platform. With Testofy’s AI-based proctored assessments everything comes under one umbrella.
