The RedyRef Drivers License Testing solution called SelfTest, comprises of 3 components: the Administrative Console (AC), Examiner Consoles (EC) and Automated Testing Stations (ATS).
SelfTest is a Windows based software suite designed to take advantage of the existing statewide LAN/WAN environment, and can be enabled to communicate directly to existing databases and state systems to retrieve pertinent user information and statistics, as well as to pass testing results into the state’s driver management and licensing system. In view of the “Real ID” program being implemented through Homeland Security, SelfTest can be integrated with a number of security features and peripherals to aid state personnel in verifying identities and streamlining the registration process.
SelfTest is designed as a ‘thick client’ application, with resident software installed on all component PCs allowing the system to continue to function even in the event of a WAN failure, whereas a testing site may lose connection to the state backbone, and is able to defer transmission of critical data and statistics up the chain until such time as the connection is restored.
The central component of the SelfTest solution is the Administrative Console application. The AC application allows the designated state coordinator to control all aspects of all tests administered through the SelfTest solution, including addition, modification, and removal of questions; changes of testing parameters and algorithms used to create and randomize specific tests; and the ability to compile and review reports of testing results both by testing location as well as statewide.
The Examiner Console (EC) application, installed at each Testing Location (site) allows the designated examiners to assign one or more tests to an applicant, to define the testing language and whether the test is to be voice prompt assisted. Additionally, the EC application tracks all tests at the local site, allowing the examiner to oversee the progress of individual tests and provides the ability to review an applicants’ entire test, including answers selected versus correct answers, if desired. The EC application allows the examiner to produce and review statistical reports for the site, as well as providing the ability to retrieve individual testing results for auditing or verification purposes.
The EC application coordinates all communication to and from the AC as well as to and from any statewide systems or databases, as designed.
The public interface of The SelfTest system is the Automated Testing Station (ATS). The ATS application is designed to present an assigned test or series of tests to an applicant, and locks out access to any system or OS functions outside the testing software.
The SelfTest solution is designed to function on commercially available hardware, has low resource requirements and does not utilize any custom or proprietary hardware components, making it very easy to maintain and operate. This open architecture also allows for a variety of procurement options, with the Software not being dependent on specific hardware.
