A digital test is an assignment type that is created online and allows for students to take the test either remotely or on location. Ans offers many possibilities and partners with several integrations to ensure that digital tests can be conducted more securely no matter where the test takes place. A digital test can either be done individually or as a group.
Benefits of a digital test
- Variety of question types
The question types that can be used in a digital test are not limited to the traditional question and answer or multiple choice types. Currently, 14 different question types can be used when creating a digital test.
- Secure a digital test
Ans offers several options to make your digital test more secure, including specific accessibility permissions and the proctoring integrations Proctorio and ProctorExam. You can also enable the lockdown browsers Safe Exam Browser or Schoolyear.
- Monitor the taking session of your digital test
When a digital test is active, it is possible to monitor the progress of participants. On the taking page, you will see an overview of the participants that have not started the test yet, participants that are currently taking the test and participants that have submitted the test. You can also see the percentage of participants that have completed each exercise.
- Use flow when creating your digital test
Flow can be used to make unique tests per student by randomly picking questions from a question group. Flow can also be used to further prevent students from getting previous exercises.
- Accessibility options
In the settings of your digital test, you can enable specific access permissions such as restricting the taking session to a certain location or setting a password, choose which utilities students may use such as Spellchecker or a built-in calculator and enforce a certain type of navigation such as one-way navigation.
- Students with learning difficulties
We offer several possibilities to help facilitate students with learning difficulties such as the option to enable Readspeaker and allowing certain students the right to extra time during the test. Students also have the option to increase the font size and contrasts of colours during a digital test.
To help prevent plagiarism, we offer the possibility to use the plagiarism integrations Turnitin and Ouriginal.
- Variety of automatically graded questions
When creating questions for your digital test, you can use several question types that can be graded automatically to save time while grading.
