In this article, we will provide you with a few of the most important issues related to online enrollment exams for users and their best solutions.
What are the differences between online enrollment exams and traditional exams?
Online examinations are different from traditional examinations in examination methods, supervision, scoring, feedback and other processes. The entire online enrollment examination is conducted online, which means that candidates can take the test at any time and any place, and candidates from different regions can have the opportunity to take the test, which greatly promotes educational equity. In addition, online examinations rely on technical support, and manual input will be reduced.
How to quickly collect candidate information?
Exam organizers can create a form to collect candidate information. For example, in Online Exam Maker, you can create a form which should contain useful candidate information relevant to the exam. It should be noted that the validity period of the form should be fixed. Finally, you can send the link to the form to the candidates, and the candidates only need to click on the link to register for the exam. The page can be redirected, which means that after candidates fill out the form, the page will automatically jump to a new page, such as the payment page, test page, your official website, etc.
How to notify candidates of the exam?
Users can send emails or send exam links to candidates inviting them to take the exam.
How to ensure the fairness of the online enrollment examination?
The development of technology provides a guarantee for the fairness of the examination. In Online Exam Maker, you can enable face recognition to prevent others from taking the test instead of taking the test; screen lock to prevent candidates from switching screens to find answers during the test; automatic detection of motion and voice to automatically detect whether candidates are cheating, etc.
How to upload test questions in batches for online exams?
Online Exam Maker provides users with test question templates in word and Excel documents. Users only need to create test questions according to the style we provide, and then upload test questions in batches. We provide a free question bank that can store a large number of test questions, and there is no limit to the number of test questions.
How to quickly get the results?
We provide users with two ways of automatic correction and manual correction. Online assessment software can automatically correct objective questions. For subjective questions, you can set manual correction or keyword automatic correction. If all your test questions are automatically graded, candidates can get the results immediately after the test.
Will online admissions exams replace traditional exams?
As an emerging examination method, online enrollment examination has been widely used in some fields, but it still needs more experiments and practice in other fields. Traditional examination methods still play an irreplaceable role in some fields, so online enrollment examinations and traditional examination methods should complement each other to meet the needs of different fields.
