john-fremer-1Caveon, the high-stakes testing industry’s leading exam security provider, announces the promotion of John Fremer, who served as President of Caveon Test Security from 2006-2009 and President of Caveon Consulting Services from 2009-2021, to President Emeritus. A Caveon co-founder with more than 40 years of experience in the field of testing, Fremer will continue to advocate for sound test security practices through publications, projects, presentations, and collaborative activities, taking a prominent role in guiding Caveon as they continue to meet the ever-changing needs of their clients. 

“Since Caveon’s inception, John’s impact on our company and our industry has been legendary,” said Steve Addicott, Caveon’s Chief Operations Officer. “For nearly two decades, John has focused his experience and expertise across hundreds of client engagements to protect important, high-stakes test programs by improving how they prevent, deter, detect, and respond to test fraud.”

Fremer’s extensive experience in the industry includes management-level positions at Educational Testing Service and The Psychological Corporation/Harcourt (now part of Pearson). He is a Past President of the National Council on Measurement in Education (NCME) and a former editor of the NCME journal Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice.

Fremer also served as President of the Association of Test Publishers (ATP) and the Association for Assessment in Counseling (AAC). He was co-chair of the Joint Committee on Testing Practices (JCTP) and of the JCTP workgroup that developed the testing-industry-wide Code of Fair Testing Practices in Education, one of the most frequently cited documents in the field of educational measurement.

Fremer is a co-editor of Computer-Based Testing: Building the Foundations for Future Assessments (2002, Erlbaum); author of “Why Use Tests and Assessments?” in the 2004 book, Measuring Up: Assessment Issues for Teachers, Counselors, and Administrators; a co-editor with Jim Wollack of The Handbook of Test Security (2013, Routledge); and co-author with John Olson of Lessons Learned in State Assessment Programs in Preventing, Detecting, and Investigating Irregularities in State Assessment Programs (2015, CCSSO, TILSA).

“When it comes to work, I try to be where the action is,” Fremer said. “In that spirit, I especially look forward to assisting my colleagues as they help our clients face ever-increasing demands. Over the years, we have learned so much about developing and running secure testing programs. That makes us a shoulder to lean on and a voice worth listening to. We want to use that experience to make testing challenges easier to cope with. My goal will be to see that we continue to get better, as we have these many years, at improving tests—how we make them and how we use them.”
