How To Make & Conduct Online Exams with Online Exam Software

When you opt for assessing students online with Pesoft’s software, you have the option of conducting exams online by creating a test on your software & making it available at a particular point of time by making the appropriate settings for the same. Let us get to know the steps that are to be followed:

Step 1: Login/ Sign Up with Pesofts Software for Assessment Online

We give you the opportunity of accessing our entire software with all the features for free. If you like it, you can go ahead with making the payment by choosing a suitable plan. Once paid, you’ll get access to our software.

The best thing about our system for online exams is the white-labeled feature that makes you the master of your software for virtual assessment. You won’t see our name anywhere. We promise.

Step 2: Insert questions Either Manually or Automatically

Once you get access to our software, it’s time for you to create the exam. Before adding questions, it is of utmost importance to choose the exam subject, the time at which you want the students to access the test & the day too. If you’ve done this, now you can frame questions in any format, be it MCQs or formula-based or image-based questions. Questions can be added in both formats, manually and in a PDF form, automatically.

Step 3: Create The Test by selecting the “Create Test Button”

After you’ve uploaded the questions, the next step involves creating the test by choosing the “Create Test” button. Before clicking on the button, don’t forget to fill in the answers to the questions. That’s also necessary.

When the students attempt these tests online, they can navigate easily with the arrow buttons. The answers that they mark are displayed in different colored tiles & therefore, this lets them keep a tab on the number of questions they have to attempt.

Step 4: Make The Necessary Test Settings

You have the liberty to set up necessary instructions such as the time at which the test will be available, the duration within which the students will have to complete the test & the day at which it would be available. With these settings, the test would automatically get over & students will no longer have the option of attempting it after the stipulated time limit.

Step 5: Give Students Access to the Unique ID & Password for giving exams.

Give your students unique ID & passwords to get access to the tests. After they log in with the credentials given by you, they’ll have to submit their ID & undergo the essential security checks by allowing the software to access their camera & microphone. Once the necessary formalities are over & the proctor verifies the student’s identity, they’ll be able to start the test.

If in case the students experience some unexpected problem, they do not have to worry. Pesofts’s 24/7 customer support will figure that out for them. The exam would immediately pause at that time & once the problem resumes, they’ll start from where they left. Test takers would also have a complete view of the entire question paper when starting with the test. Further unlimited number of students can attempt the test at a particular point in time. Our software is capable enough to handle the load.

Step 6: View Results After The Completion of Test

After the students complete their test, the software generates a report based on the answers that you have saved & after comparing it with the options opted by the test takers. The choice is yours. You can either let the students see their score after they complete the test or if that’s not what you want, the software will prepare a detailed report of every student, which you can display whenever you want. The detailed information would also give the exam conducting agencies an analysis of the overall performance.
