One of the most well-renowned independent K-12 schools in New York, The Hewitt School, and Edtech-startup DigiExam, announce their successful effort to relocate teacher administration to a digitized examination system.
Alike top ivy-league contributing independent NYC schools- Dwight School, The Browning School and Birch Wathen Lenox-The Hewitt School choose to implement DigiExam in order to reduce teacher’s test creation and grading time, enabling them to return to their mission of teaching.
The use of pen and paper is rapidly becoming obsolete and unnecessarily time-consuming. 95% of students in U.S have access to a laptop or tablet, and schools choosing the 1:1 model are increasing. To meet the demand and lifestyle of students today, the education sector reaches out to find cloud-based and digital solutions. DigiExam provides a platform for digital test creation and grading. Some of the platforms most appreciated functions give teachers the possibility to share test-questions between each other, automatically correct answers and co-grade thus saving up to 50% on admin time.
Director of Educational Technology Jeremy Sambuca, realized that The Hewitt School needed to be forward-looking and adapt to their students technological lifestyle. And while remaining true to their mission, Hewitt works hard to provide girls with the tools, skills and know-how they will need to become tomorrow´s innovators, inventors and leaders.
Jeremy began searching for a system to cut down on the most time consuming task for teachers grading. The system needed to be safe, effective, easy to use for both students and teachers, and of course cheat-proof.
– “Students at The Hewitt School are exposed to technology at an early stage. Its important to build an interest and understanding, since it´s the future they will study, work and live in. With DigiExam we can offer our students a way of taking tests, that is much more natural to them” – Jeremy Sambuca, EdTech Director, The Hewitt School
With the DigiExam U.S expansion, schools can now take the first step towards an effective and efficient digitized examination solution.
– “Our close relationship with The Hewitt School opens many doors for us. We are proud and grateful that such an innovative and well-renowned school choose DigiExam to digitize examinations.” – Johan Hagglund, CEO DigiExam
