Imagine holding the colosseum in the palm of your hand, while teaching students the fascinating story behind it. Or maybe having an innovative workshop where students can create, design and explore new ideas. These are some of the trends that researchers brought forward, and that they belive will shape the future of higher education.
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.
Up until now printing and publishing students’ exam results has been an all-or-nothing deal. Today we have released an update that gives teachers detailed control over which parts of the questions, answers and feedback that will be included.
Många av våra användare uttrycker ett stort behov över att kunna arbeta med formativ bedömning och arbeta med framåtskridande återkoppling när eleverna har skrivit digitala prov. På DigiExam är det viktigt för oss att vara lyhörda och ta tillvara på alla de tekniska möjligheterna som uppstår när skolor tar klivet från traditionella och administrativt omständliga handskrivna prov till digitala prov och en effektiviserad process.
Something teachers have missed when going from pen and paper to computer based exams has been being able to annotate and write notes in textual answers. Many of our customers work with formative assessment giving the students specific feedback to better help them understand what they did good and what they need to improve. When working with computer based exams and formative assessments the teacher need sophisticated tools to give feedback.
We recently launched a first version of “sharing and collaboration” inside DigiExam. A teacher can now share an exam from the library for others to use, or choose to share the task of grading an exam so other teachers can help out in that process.
This will enable teachers to collaborate more easily together when grading anonymous exams. Which enables teachers to perform fairer assessments of the students since they can split up the grading so each teacher grades one question, per student.
In addition to the sharing and collaboration features, we’ve also added two new user-roles to DigiExam. The Account Manager who can manage all the teacher accounts inside a school account, and the Administrator role which has full access to all exams inside a school account, in case a teacher is absent or just happens to need some help!
