  • Students can always check their grades

    • And report possible errors

  • The teacher can easily calculate final grades

Simple grade export into excel for the teacher

How to conduct an exam


Automatically graded (to a great extent)

Stressful feeling of a failure

Everything can be submitted as a file

Easier to read

Questions are selected randomly


Tedious checking of students work

Stressful waiting for the result

Easier to write

Sometimes difficult to read

Should be printed in several versions

How to conduct an exam?

Proposed security measures
Proposed security measures

  • Every student needs to enter a password in order to start the quiz

    • A course itself can be protected by an additional password

      • Enrollment key

  • Quizes are available only in a certain time window

    • An additional time limit for viewing a quiz can also be set

  • Questions in each quiz can be randomly selected

    • Each student has his own set of questions

    • Answers in multiple choice quizes can also be shuffled

  • Quiz can be made invisible for students until an exam starts

    • Quiz hiding is done manually by the teacher

Bright future
