VirtualAssessor® FUNCTIONALITY

comprises two parts:

1.

Assessor System

in which the learner accesses tests or surveys

Taking an Assessment/ Survey


The learner accesses exams, tests, quizzes or surveys via the Internet. The interface is fully customisable for your organization’s corporate identity. Access can be configured to include pre-registration or self-registration of learners.

When setting up tests there are options to allow learners:

  • flexible navigation through a test;
  • mandatory questions (that cannot be skipped);
  • immediate scores and anwers;
  • comprehensive feedback on answers;
  • viewing of test history.

Tests can also be invigilated and/or delivered in a secure testing environment that limits printing, navigation and copy functionality.
