We all know that students sometimes try to cheat, this is not a new phenomenon. At the same pace teachers implement solutions to prevent cheating, students find new and creative ways to get around it.
Cheating students is always an issue and concern, not only for teachers but also society. Just imagine medical students taking a shortcut and cheating, would you want that to be your future doctor? We’re guessing no.
Our first U.S office opened in august 2015 with the goal to connect to U.S schools. Right now we are located in New York in “Silicon Alley” following a rapid increased interest from US based schools. Every week we are happy to meet schools across USA, curious about the benefits with digital examinations.
Our highest requested feature has undoubtedly been the Equation Editor. Hundreds of teachers have been waiting to examine their students with math, physics and chemistry equations. The DigiExam engineering team have been working relentlessly to provide an easy to use and effective feature which enables them to do so. In close collaboration with science teachers we are now proud to introduce the brand new Equation Editor.
This week DigiExam was invited to share our story at the EdTech Forum in London. CEO Johan Hägglund held a keynote on how digital examinations promote learning, enabling teachers to focus on pedagogical (rather than administrative) tasks.
