Assessment is still an agreed form of testing one’s learning capabilities and improving their chances of development. The continuous shift in educational strategies has shown us the importance of outcome-based learning methods that could rely on the application of learned theoretical knowledge.
But the question arises on which assessment tool to employ and what to foresee for conducting a test. Which testing method would help the students to identify their learning progress? How can you resolve the concerns of institutions regarding the reliability and security of the assessment tool?
The pointers below explain the features and workings of DigiAssess. Let us look at it in detail.
Analytical tools for evaluation
When we talk about scores and grades, we are in turn evaluating our progress as we learn new concepts. So how can software assist you in identifying your growth as a learner?
DigiAssess provides reliable reports and detailed progress curves for students based on their performance in each course. Students can go through their learning graph to understand their position in each subject and seek assistance for the concepts that they struggle with.
Student analysis in turn helps in course analysis and identifies the gaps in each course outcome. Analysing learning and course outcomes can improve the content delivery methods and later the program-related curriculum based on the student's feedback.
Extensive databases stored in the software prove as a beneficial tool in constructing valuable recognition and documentation as required by National and International accreditation norms.
Once the teachers have the mean score and high to low scoring by each student, they can initiate assistance and support sessions to improve their learning outcomes. Having an accessible longitudinal student progress record is thus a healthy tool for assessment.
Security and advanced safety
The foremost question that arises about education assessment tools is, are they reliable? Can we trust the process? Will it be safe to store questions and answer scripts in them?
Well, DigiAssess answers all your doubts. The cloud-based storage helps the answer sheets to be stored in the software and used for analysis. The encryption and decryption feature builds more confidence in the safety of the solution. Students can log in to the test using their face ID which prevents any form of proxy. Students can submit the answer scripts to the databases, which are secure within the portals of each institution. Teachers can retrieve the scripts and the system creates individual reports for each student based on their scores after each test.
Onsite digital assessments use minimal network requirements which allow the institutions to have a reliable process. As the exam starts, the user’s device is locked and blocks switching to other tabs for searching answers. This increases the credibility of the assessment process.
Question banks accessibility
Preparing a test requires the faculty to cover topics from low to high difficulty levels, various Bloom’s Taxonomy and Webb's depth of knowledge in order to improve the understanding of every student. A question bank draws questions from each topic and categorises the questions based on their difficulty level.
Does it mean that question banks could ease the work of experts and teachers? Yes, you are right. It helps teachers and subject experts review the questions and add them based on a default checklist. They can easily identify the topics that need more focus and highlight the gaps in teaching and learning based on the student scores.
Using the feature of option randomisation & question randomisation, each student receives a different set of questions. Reports and analytics of DigiAssess give individual performance graphs for students which show their progress to themselves as well as teachers. They are provided assistance in the areas their graph shows a declining trend.
DigiAssess gives an overall view of student learning and faculty teaching efficiency through reliable reports and longitudinal analysis. Customisable and decentralised question banks are a unique feature of DigiAssess, seeking to unite the assessment tools in one place.
Know what you choose
As we have run through the basic checklist for an assessment tool, you are now ready to decide which ones to employ for your institution. Our team at DigiVal believes in building a secure and collaborative space for institutions and students, to rely on and seek support during, before and after the assessments.
Software features like built-in reports and analytics and mapping the learning outcomes help the staff to direct the best methods for students who need them and bring the low-performing students to the higher rungs.
Integrating evaluation and accessibility has become the focus for DigiAssess. As we provide empathetic support to students, our features assist more than that. The analytics are an optimal way of improving the curricular and subject effectiveness and altering the curriculum plan for increased engagement.
