The importance of an online exam platform

The advancement into the digital era has been inevitable for organizations to prosper in today's times. The covid-19 pandemic fast-tracked this, making schools advance their current syllabus not only to face the immediate threat of the pandemic but also to build a system for the future.

The online mode of education is largely dependent on technology, and as a result, many educational institutions have transitioned to online test-taking (both remotely and on-premise) as opposed to traditional pen and paper examinations.

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 of the national exams that were performed digitally 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 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's perspective, using a digital tool enables them to perform under the best conditions when it matters the most.

Why schools are switching to online examinations

Reduces carbon footprint

Online examinations have a positive impact on the environment. Pen and paper examinations not only require a lot of paper to print question and answer sheets, but it also requires the students and educators to be physically present, potentially resulting in an increased carbon footprint from the logistics of getting to and from the examination location.

Offers flexibility

Paper and pen exams have become obsolete because of the covid-19 pandemic. However, the online exam is here to stay - even after the pandemic has ended - due to the many advantages it holds over in-person, pen and paper, and physical examinations.

Saves time

Online exams not only save time for students by reducing the time it takes to write the exam and eliminating the time it takes to travel to and fro the examination location, but the educators also benefit greatly from the online setting and the features of the technology (such as automatic grading, reusing old test templates, etc.)

Saves money

Since everything is online, there are no associated printing or logistics costs. Educational institutions will also be able to save money on examination facilities and a reduced number of facilitators and invigilators to invigilate the exam. While an online exam will still require some expenses such as administration, and IT support, it’s dramatically less than that of a pen and paper exam.

Scalability

For pen and paper examinations, the more people who will write the exam, the bigger the challenge to facilitate it. In comparison, an online examination system is very easy to scale. Setting up an exam for 10 or 1,000 students takes almost the same amount of time and effort.

Convenient

Last but not least, online exams are convenient for everyone. Educators can create and re-use old shared templates from their colleagues, use automatic grading, as well as co-grade with colleagues. Students can select exam times that suit them best and since the exams are online, do it from pretty much anywhere. Students can also get their results almost instantaneously.

Secure

Security is and always has been a challenge with exams, especially with more high-stakes exams such as bar exams, SATs, or college/university final exams. While an online examination system is not perfect, they solve a majority of the challenges with cheating. There are fewer risks of leaks since there are no physical papers, randomly selected questions from question banks can be utilized, and features such as device lockdown, ID verification, and credibility reports ensure high exam integrity.
