Planning to publishing to delivery

Exam supports the full scheduling process. From the import of students enrolment to exam delivery, including invigilation management and attendance monitoring.

Draft publishing is also supported and can be shared with different stakeholders across multiple locations, with notifications of changes.

Putting students first

Exam principally has student satisfaction in mind. Each student profile is considered to create the best personal exam schedule possible for all, including seating plans and accessibility or alternative requirements.

Schedules built around constraints

Exam helps ensure schedules work around your invigilator and venue capacities.

Invigilators
Exam uses constraints and a survey tool to reach ideal invigilator schedules designed around their availability and workload.

Venues
Various room properties such as fitting, utilisation, splitting and proximity are considered when creating schedules.

Decision support

Import, export and build the Exam model
