Multiple-choice Quiz Tests
A faculty teaching a course can launch one or more Multiple-choice Quiz Tests for that course. Only a student registered for that course can log in, answer the questions, and submit his / her answers.
As soon as a student submits his / her answers, he / she receives a report of his / her performance in the Test, as well as his / her total score. These serve as valuable feedback to the student.
Time-limited Quiz Exam
This is identical to Multiple-choice Quiz Test, except that the faculty specifies (i) the pass percentage, and (ii) the time within which a student must submit his / her answers, after beginning to answer the questions comprising the exam, by way of loading the exam. The student gets timed out, if he / she does not submit within the specified time. Furthermore, if the student has passed, he / she is automatically issued a Pass Certificate.
The questions served to a student are randomly picked from out of a Question Bank. A student can take the exam at a time of his / her choice. Time-limited Quiz Exams are not proctored.
A faculty teaching a course might have conducted a conventional offline exam, in which the Question Paper is on paper, and the Answer Scripts submitted by students are also on paper.
An Offline Exam is used to bring on record such a conventional offline exam, as well as exams that can only be conducted on-premise, such as laboratory exams.
For each question in the conventional offline exam that was conducted by the faculty, the faculty will need to input the awarded marks, as well as comments on the students' answers, into the corresponding Offline Exam.
