Generate tests and packages them for easy distribution. Exam Pro is a sophisticated software tool that will assist you in designing secure exams or tests to be printed or to be used online. It allows you to include different kinds of questions in your exam, as well as to assign a maximum answering time and a score to each question.
Exam Pro is very intuitive and easy to use. It allows you to save your exams as files with the “.exm” extension, and reopen and edit them later. Exams are stored using an encryption algorithm, so that they cannot be copied or stolen. They are also protected by two passwords – a general and an administrative password. When you create a new exam, you can use the "question designer" to start developing your test. It lets you select the type of question, its number, its score, and the time allocation. Possible types of questions are Multiple choice single answer, Multiple choice multiple answers, Fill in the blanks, True or False, Yes or No, and Essay type descriptive answer. Besides, the program allows you to add image, audio, and video files to your questions. You must also define the correct options and answers.
Exam Pro provides a "Security Settings" window, where you can configure many parameters related to your exams and questions. For example, you can assign a name to the exam, and a custom message to be displayed when opened. You can also establish the maximum number of times a student can open the exam. With regards to the time, you can set a maximum global time for the exam, and whether the question timer and the exam timer will be shown or not. Other minor settings will let you decide whether the examiner allows a calculator to be used or not, and if the program should shuffle the questions in exam mode or not.
By default, the program starts in "design" mode, which allows you to create exams and design your questions. However, you can toggle to "exam mode”, allowing a student to make use of the trial version of the program to present a "Computer Based Test" (CBT). Furthermore, the program can create "study cards", based on your questions and answers. They turn out to be very helpful for the students when preparing for a test. Unfortunately, this Pro version of the program seems to be too expensive, especially compared with the Standard version – $59.95 against $995.00.
