Finding the right coaching is a vital aspect of any student’s academic journey, as it can be instrumental in making their journey towards success more manageable. As the number of students participating in competitive entrance exams increases annually, the pressure and competition among them also rise. The support and guidance provided by coaching institutions can aid young minds in overcoming obstacles and getting closer to their desired career paths. Here, we see how Think Exam’s online test platforms help coaching institutions effectively guide students forward in their academic pursuits.
Helps Conduct Online Practice Exams Easily
Practice exams, also known as mock tests, are simulated versions of the actual entrance exam that are designed to closely mimic the format, structure, and difficulty level of the real exam. The key to successfully cracking entrance examinations is to take as many practice exams as possible. Think Exam enables instructors to prepare customized tests through its quiz creator feature. This benefits students in many ways, some of which are given below.
- Familiarization: By taking practice exams, students become familiar with the format and structure of the actual entrance exam, which helps reduce test anxiety and increase their confidence on exam day.
- Time management: Quizzes created on our online platform can be set to a particular duration. This will help students understand the time constraints of the actual exam and develop strategies for managing their time effectively during the test.
- Identifying weaknesses: Think Exam’s online assessment platform also gives students immediate feedback on their results. This provides students with an opportunity to identify their weaknesses and areas of improvement, which can then be targeted through additional study and practice.
- Adapting to the online format: With the rise of online exams, taking practice exams online helps students adapt to the online format and overcome any technical difficulties they might face during the actual exam.
- Improving performance: By taking multiple practice exams, students can monitor their progress and improve their performance over time.
Enables Creation of Customized Tests
Think Exam’s online assessment platform enables instructors of coaching institutions to customize the tests they create in the following ways.
- Define the name and add images to the test or quiz
- Describe the marking scheme and set time limits
- Add and import questions
- Modify settings such as movement, restrictions, and mandatory fields
- Assign the created test or quiz to a specific candidate or group
- Provide clear instructions and guidelines for solving the questions
- Explain the marking scheme for correct, incorrect, and partially correct attempts, sections, and questions
- Include tips and tricks to simplify the evaluation process
- Specify whether calculators are allowed
Enables Automatic Grading and Result Generation
Think Exam’s online test platform uses advanced algorithms to grade exams quickly and accurately and generate results in real-time. This can greatly benefit coaching institutions in several ways:
- Quick and Accurate: It eliminates the need for manual grading, which can be a time-consuming and error-prone process. This allows coaching institutions to grade large numbers of exams quickly and accurately, which improves efficiency and saves time.
- Consistency: It is consistent and objective, which eliminates the potential for bias and human error. This ensures that all students are graded fairly and accurately.
- Real-Time Analytics: Automatic grading and result generation by Think Exam’s quiz creator feature allows for real-time analysis of student performance, so coaching institutions can quickly identify areas where students are struggling and provide targeted support.
- Customization: The grading can be customized to the specific needs of the coaching institution. For example, it can be set to grade different question types, such as multiple choice, short answer, or fill-in-the-blank, and assign different weightage to different sections of the test.
Provides Active Links to Share Tests
Our online assessment platform enables instructors to share tests with candidates via active links. They are hyperlinks that are embedded in a web page, email, or other digital document that, when clicked, take the user to another webpage or location. They can be in the form of a text or an image that, when clicked, redirects the user to a different webpage, a downloadable file, a form, or other online resources. Given below are two significant benefits of using active links.
- Multiple Options: Active links provide coaching institutions with the flexibility to share tests with candidates in a variety of ways, such as through email, external websites, and access codes. This allows institutions to choose the method that best suits their needs and the needs of their students.
- Control and Security: By using access codes, coaching institutions can ensure that only authorized individuals can access the test, which improves security and reduces the risk of cheating. When access codes are used, only individuals with the correct code are able to access the test. It ensures that only authorized individuals have access to the test questions and answers, and prevents the test from being shared or leaked to unauthorized parties.
Provides Advanced Settings for Tests
In addition to the above, our online test platform also gives instructors some advanced settings for tests and quizzes. These settings help them customize the tests and control the examination experience. These settings include:
- Difficulty level: Instructors can adjust the difficulty level of the created assessments to match the level of their students or the desired level of difficulty.
- Controlled atmosphere: A controlled atmosphere can be created for the exam by disabling the use of external devices or disabling internet access during the exam.
- Scoring schemes: Precise scoring schemes, like assigning different weightage to different sections of the test, can be defined for the created assessments.
- Restrictions: Our quiz creator feature also allows instructors to restrict certain actions during the exam, like disabling the use of back and forward buttons or setting a time limit for the exam after which the test will automatically close.
- Shuffling: Instructors can shuffle the questions, sections, and answer options within a subject or the options of multiple-choice questions in the test to avoid cheating.
- Mandatory fields: Some fields in the test can be defined as mandatory fields. Students will have to mandatorily answer such fields before the test can be submitted.
