1. Meet students where they are
Sometimes it’s not practical or necessary to bring a whole group of students together in one room for assessment or examination. And right now, in the midst of a pandemic, it’s just not healthy.
Today’s student has an expectation that the tools they need for successful learning will be available to them digitally, on a device of their choosing. Why should “written” quizzes, tests, and exams be any different?
With a secure, online assessment tool – that can be proctored as required – students can answer multiple choice and essay-type questions from wherever they may be; on smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC.
While digital exam and assessment solutions can be used standalone, an ideal solution would be to integrate the tool with a platform that students are already familiar with, such as the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) or student portal. This way, tests of all kinds can be accessed through the principal student platform and results can be automatically synced to all relevant systems.
