Accessibility and Flexibility

Exams can be conducted anywhere. All a student needs is a personal computer with internet connection. A student does not need a long commute to exam venue as long as these requirements are met. This also means that thousands of students can take the same exams over a wide spread of locations. Gone are days, students move from one region or locality to another in the name of sitting the examination. A lot of lives have been lost in the process due to accident and other similar mishaps. In the same vein, examiners also benefit from this. Examiners do not have to bother with the laborious task of marking exams as this is well taken care of by the system. The system actually marks each exam and presents the result to the student at the end of the exam. Examiners are also afforded the opportunity to create exam online through an online examination system that can present examinations in multiple languages. Multiple exams on multiple subjects for multiple courses can also be set. Exams can also be configured for 24/7 availability. This allows candidates to take exams at their own convenience.

Cost saving

When an exam is placed online, it results in significant cost savings. The cost of paper, copying, and distribution expenses are all reduced or eliminated. The elimination of paper costs alone is extraordinary. The copying and distribution of assignments to a large class are often unwieldy and inefficient. Administrators anxious to reduce expenditures are likely to strongly favor the transition from paper assignments examinations to using online assessment software.

Time management

With the widespread availability of computers and the internet, there is a general acceptability and endorsement of this system. The lengthy formalities and processes involved in creating question papers, registering candidates for exams, answer sheet evaluation and declaration of results are completely eradicated with our platform. Each student is timed precisely and all results are generated instantaneously. In some cases, a candidate may even be able to get an assessment on failed questions.

Statistical analysis

On a statistical point of view, compared data can be stored over time. This means that different comparative analysis can be done to analyze the outcomes of exams overtime. Depending on the online exam system used, statistical data can be pulled to analyze different data and create reports.


 

The assessment

Our platform offers a powerful assessment tool where participants answer a series of system-marked questions. Assessments can have time limits and provide feedback based on the overall grade achieved. Question selection can be randomised or specific with control over final layout altered. There are also various measures that can be utilised that maintain integrity of the grades. The range of options – too many to attempt to list here – make this a very flexible assessment tool.
