Online Exam and Exam Grade Management for your Institute
Students and educational institutes benefit from exams not only because exams accurately measure a student’s progress, but because it promotes competition among students and motivates them to work harder. However, most importantly because examinations enable schools to understand the gaps in teaching, find flaws in pedagogy, and help modify the methods.
Technology has transformed the education sector in recent years. Gosfem has contributed significantly to the transformation of the education sector. One of the biggest changes in recent years was the replacement of traditional exams with online tests. We define online testing or digital exams as virtual exams undertaken on a smart device–smartphone, tab, laptop, computing using the internet. The student can give an online examination from any location across the world.
With increasing advances in technology, online exams have been accessible and increasingly preferred in many educational institutes across the world. Online testing has proven to be more convenient, more efficient, and more reliable. Additionally, it is time-saving for both the students and the teachers.
The following are some Advantages of Online Exams:
Online exams offer one of the biggest advantages because schools no longer have to spend time managing the entire process of creating, printing, delivering, and storing exams.
Flexibility to Take Exams Anywhere
A key advantage to online exams is that students can give their exams from the comfort of their own homes, a café, or any corner of the world. Students not only save time and money by not going to a test center, but it is also less stressful and easier on their mental health.
Reduced Administrative Burden
Conducting exams online reduces the administrative burden greatly. Printing the papers, distributing the question papers, and collecting the completed answer scripts are time-consuming, stressful, and costly tasks. On the other hand, using online assessment software eliminates these tasks, and streamlines the examination process, making it time and cost-efficient.
Quicker to Mark and Create Report Cards
Online tests are much quicker to moderate and mark and students can attain immediate feedback as well as ongoing feedback from their test results. This enables them to take immediate action and correct their learning curve as needed.
Online exams are environmentally friendly since they use less paper, printing, and transportation. This method of examination also eliminates the stress of storing examination records
Scalable with Worldwide Reach
Schools can offer exams to candidates across locations as they are not restricted to offering exams in physical test centers. As a result, they are able to expand their student pool across geographies and provide further education development and new knowledge to students around the world.
Online tests are also more secure since all test papers, results, and grade books are stored electronically and can only be accessed by authorized staff members.
