iGiveTest is a comprehensive solution for creating, administering, and providing thorough analysis of tests on the Internet and Intranet.
It is a quick and professional way to create and organize tests for employees, students, and people in training.
Using iGiveTest, you can ask any kind of question (true/false, multiple choice, short answer, essay, questions with more than one correct answer). You can choose how to mark each question (for example, 2 points for a correct answer, 0.5 points for a partially correct answer, and 0 for an incorrect answer).
iGiveTest also supports the creation of psychological tests, quizzes, and all kinds of questionnaires, where as a rule there are no right or wrong answers.
Using the questions editor, you can easily list all your questions and format the text, add graphics, formulas, animation, and audio and video files. Ability to create templates allows you to set up a style for your tests consistent with that of your website and gives your test a professional look. (For a reasonable charge, we are always ready to create a professional looking template for you.)
A bank of questions makes it extremely easy to create tests. The questions can be conveniently divided into different topics, where each question has its unique number and can be sorted, filtered, and organized by different criteria and parameters. The bank of questions makes test-writing a piece of cake.
In the iGiveTest system, a special import system is developed. It allows you to almost automatically import questions (plain text only), created in any text editor.
You can place an introductory text at the start of the test or before any question (theoretical background, instructions, or explanations). After the test-taker has answered, you can provide an explanatory message (for example, point out mistakes, explain the right answer, give an example, show a proof, etc.)
Each test can present questions in random order. You can display one question per page or all questions on one page. Besides grading tests by points or by the number of correct answers, you can define your own grading scale (for example, the traditional 13-grade system A+, A, A-, B+,B, B-,C+,C,C-,D+,D,D-,F, the 5-grade system A,B,C,D,F, or any other system).
You can create a password to access a test, assign a test to a certain group of users, give access to a test only during a certain period (determined by date and time), and define an exact number of attempts to pass a test. You can also provide a guest access to the testing system, and define guest permissions.
For every user you can make a database record in the testing system, set certain permissions to access and change information, and assign the user to any group or class. You can create administrators, instructors, operators (for entering questions), regular users, and guests, and set their permissions accordingly.
You can automatically send out testing results to any group of users by email. You will have the ability to change standard email templates or to create templates of your own. A convenient system of making templates will allow you to write your own message in the email and include only the desired information about the result.
The reports manager allows you to view testing results for each user or group of users, at a glance and in detail (when the test was taken, how long it took, the answer to each question, points earned for each question, points for the entire test, and so on). Also, you can read and give or change marks for the essay answers.
After the test you can gather statistics from the answers to each question. The page for collecting statistics allows you to view detailed information about how the answers were chosen. For instance, how many times each answer was chosen and what percentage of the users chose particular answers, how many times an answer was chosen correctly, partially correctly, or incorrectly, and how many questions are yet to be marked (essay questions being marked by hand).
"Active-Sites Web Hosting and Development required a robust testing solution for our client in order to provide its clients with an online proficiency testing resource for cardiology practice administrators. Tests are given to employees which deliver a Continuing Education Units (CEU) certificate in the form of a downloadable PDF upon successful completion of a test. iGive Test is a wonderful open source application with solid out of the box features, attractive and easy to use interface, and well structured source code which allows our developers to add additional functionality as needed in order to mold the application around the business model."
