Test Security IssuesThis is the final set of items to be used by UPS and other Aon Hewitt clients; items that will help UPS find the most qualified applicants for the job.Ways to reduce test security breaches include:
Limiting access to the web siteKeeping your Admin ID and Password confidentialKeeping User IDs and PINs secure after generation
Administering the assessment in a controlled, secure environmentMaking sure printers are not available on the computers used for test administrationProviding a reasonable level of monitoring while applicants take the test Test security breaches weaken the measurement accuracy and legal defensibility of the test
Some applicants may have an advantage over others if they have access to information about the test that will help them to score better
Test scores may no longer accurately reflect applicants’ abilities and thus the degree that applicants are qualified for the jobSlide4
Test Security Issues (continued)To the extent that measurement accuracy is compromised, your organization:
Will not necessarily be able to select the best applicants for the jobHas an increased vulnerability to legal challenges based on the use of the testTo ensure a fair, valid, and reliable selection process, test security MUST be maintained at all timesSlide5

TroubleshootingHelpful Contacts at Aon Hewitt:
Client Support Desk (for technical help): 1-800-596-2859My Admin ID/Password doesn’t workAre you at the correct URL?
Admin Site - https://gate.aon.com/adminTest Site – https://gate.aon.com/candidateThe applicant cannot loginReminder, the User ID is 8 letters/characters, the PIN is 4 numbers – check for zero “o”, and 1 and “L” or “i” changes
Is the registration expired?
Was the User ID and PIN given to someone else in error?
Applicant completed the test, but I can’t find the results
Reduce the filters you are using on the search screen. – Try using the date completed only, or the applicant ID
Did the applicant click on “I am finished”? - Use the applicants screen to locate the record and check for a date in the tested column… if there isn’t a date – it isn’t scored.
Click on the Registered Date, verify responses are complete, save and score the test.
