Exam Professor offers everything a teacher needs to successfully give assessments to their students.
In the event of an Internet outage, students will always be able to pick up where they left off. With Exam Professor, student answers are saved in the cloud each step of the way.
You can specify the amount of time you allow students to complete an exam. Students will see a bright green timer that slowly fades to red as the time runs out. Once a student begins an exam, the timer continues on even if the student logs out.
With Exam Professor, students will not be able to share answers easily. You can also specify how many questions to present from a larger pool.
Create private and public exams
Through a private login, all student activity is tracked, scored, and available later to view, print, or export. Or, you can make exams public and allow students to take assessments anonymously. You specify the passing score and the number of retakes allowed, if any. If you sell access to your exams, students can self-register and begin their exam instantly.
You choose what students see
You choose what type of feedback a student receives after an exam is graded.
Teachers can choose to receive email notifications the moment a student completes their exam. Students receive email confirmation displaying score, take number, time stamps, and if a passing score was reached.
Since teachers are the busiest lot we know, we made adding questions as simple as 1-2-3.
Jump in - the water is warm!
Create exams and treat them as pools of questions. You can then quickly copy questions into new exams, or randomly offer a select number of questions from these pools so that no two students receive the same exact test or retake.
Type, tab, enter, drag & drop, sort, filter, and order
No mouse necessary when entering questions. With our unique interface, you merely type your question, tab to the next field, type an answer, enter to save, and repeat. Your hands never leave the keyboard and the page never refreshes - it's fast!
If you misspell words, we will point them out for you and offer a list of alternatives. Through unicode, we support all major languages plus thousands of characters and symbols.
Once you have entered your data, you can drag your questions and answers in any order, and organize them to your liking.
Upload images (JPEG, GIF, or PNG) and attach to each question in your exams.
Students will be able to see your media as thumbnails in their exams, which expand to the original size.
Get the stats
Need to see which question is missed most often? Use Exam Professor to give formative assessments, see which questions your students are getting wrong, and be able to adjust your teaching practices to the concepts your students are not grasping.
Want your data back?
What you put into Exam Professor is all yours, of course. Exam Professor is not proprietary with your data and everything is exportable as PDF or Excel, including graded exams, exam keys, blank exams, and question statistics.
Getting students into Exam Professor has never been easier.
You can add additional teachers to an account and add them to the student manager group, allowing them to add, edit, and delete student accounts.
Group your students into classes. You can also add students to more than one class, making it easy to find student data quickly.
If you can export a list of your students as Excel or CSV (comma separated value) list, then entering them in our system is as simple as copy, paste, import. You can also import teachers in the same fashion, which makes setting up an account for your school or organization a simple affair.
Students can self-register at the exam engine, or you can do it for them through the teacher portal. If you open an exam to self-enrollment, all you have to do is tell your students the web address to your hosted exams, and we will handle the rest.
Students self manage
Students can log-in to the exam interface to take exams, update their profile, view reports, or change their password, thus easing the burden of student management.
Managing thousands of students and hundreds of exams has never been easier.
We help you keep organized
When you load an exam, you see instantly who has already been enrolled, and more importantly who still needs to be. To assign a student with an exam, you simply drag them (or many) from one column to the next. If your students are paying for access to an exam, they will be automatically enrolled during the self-registration process.
Send enrollment info
Send out individual or a mass email to students telling them where to log-in, what exam they are assigned to take, how many times they can take the exam, and what is a passing score.
Add individual retakes
You can assign additional retakes to all students, or individually on an as-need basis. If a student is paying to take an exam, you can set the price for each additional retake of their exams.
Reset exam history
In case you wish to erase a student's exam history, which is perfect if you are giving things a dry run.
