DigiExam – The most used assessment tool for the Swedish National Exams!

We are very proud to be the most used digital assessment tool! In the report from the Swedish National Agency for Education, a summary on the National Exams that were performed digitally, it has shown that more than a third of the country’s high schools and municipal adult education schools performed their National Exams in Swedish and English with DigiExam. Also among the Swedish schools that performed the National Exams digitally with their 9th graders, DigiExam is a widely used platform with a fourth of the schools using us.

Another experience from the report is that a large number of the schools in Sweden use digital assessment tools in their ordinary teaching. We think that this is great news and it connects well with our idea to support teachers by simplifying the assessment process, which saves valuable time for the teachers. From a student perspective, using a digital tool enables them to perform under the best conditions, when it matters the most.

The latest release of the Invigilator view allows a teacher or course administrator to share the exam overview with a colleague or exam supervisor. Either by co-sharing the entire exam process from exam creation, activation and co-grading of students’ answers. Thus an even more traditional usage – by giving an exam supervisor the viewing rights to monitor student progress during the exam, without compromising exam integrity.

Additionally, word gaps and simple answers can replace traditional MCQ in some forms of assessments, the add media functionality allows external links and resources, and the locked or randomized question order does not only fit high stake exams but give teachers additional tools to an increased usage of DigiExam.
