What is the difference between Exam software and Exam Pro software?
Exam and Exam Pro softwares are windows applications for creating question banks and for conducting exams. Exam and Exam Pro softwares are not web based. They need to be installed on the user's computer.

Exam and Exam Pro softwares offer a complete solution for Computer Based Test (CBT) You can create your own unique exams/tests and administer them. Exam and Exam Pro softwares keep all the records of conducted exams, score reports and Student's Answer Sheets.

Exam software (cost $150) is suitable for individual users who have only few computers to install the software. Total number of licenses you need is the total number of computers on which you are going to install the software.

Exam Pro software (cost $2500) has all the features of Exam software with additional packaging feature. Exam Pro provides royalty free distribution rights. This means you can sell your packaged tests or install your packaged tests on unlimited number of computers. The package wizard packages all your tests and creates an executable program. Your packaged tests are completely yours. There is absolutely no mention of Exam Pro in your package. The packages are totally customizable by you where you can set startup image, company logo image, background image, background color, fonts and style and many other attributes.

If you have fewer than 17 computers, then Exam software is the best choice. If you want to conduct exam on more than 17 computers, then Exam Pro software is the best choice.

How to use packaged tests in the intranet environment (within the organization)?
Following example shows you how to use the packaged tests in the intranet environment (within the organization)

Suppose you have a computer lab with 50 computers connected to a network server. Your server name is test-server (IP address: 192.168.3.10). You have already created your packaged test called "myPackage" using Exam Pro software. And you have installed "myPackage" on this server in "c:\Program Files\mytest" folder. So your executable file name is "c:\Program Files\mytest\myPackage.exe"

Share "c:\Program Files\mytest" folder (right click the folder and select "Sharing..." menu, and select "Share this folder". Goto "Security" tab and allow the users to read and write this folder.

Now all the 50 computers connected to the server can access your packaged tests.

Just create a shortcut on the client computer's desktop pointing to:

\\192.168.3.10\mytest\myPackage.exe

or

Double click on "My Computer" icon on the client computer's desktop and enter the following in the address location:

\\192.168.3.10\mytest\myPackage.exe

All the Student's Answer Sheet (.sas) files will be created on the server as \\192.168.3.10\mytest\student-id-time-stamp.sas for each student. This way you get the centralized administration of the examination.

Later you can import all the Student's Answer Sheet (.sas) files into Exam Records (.rec) file and export the data in different formats which you can use to import into other applications like Microsoft Excel or other databases for further analysis.

How to use packaged tests on website?
Following example shows you how to use the packaged tests in the Web Portal environment.

Suppose your organization has a web portal. You create individual login for every student enrolled into your organization. You also have individual login with admin privileges for teachers. For the sake of example say you have 2000 students enrolled and you have 20 teachers.

For the above setup you need one Exam Pro (cost $2500) and 20 Exam (cost $150 each)

Following will explain how this whole stuff works. Since our software is not web browser based you have to do few things to achieve the required goal.

You install Exam Pro software on one computer and install Exam software on 20 computers where teachers develop their question banks (i.e. .exm files).

1. All 20 teachers develop their question banks (i.e. .exm files) from their individual PC/laptop.

2. Once teachers have created their exam (.exm) files they copy those .exm files to a network drive if they have those .exm files on their local hard drive. If they have all those .exm files already on the network drive then no need to copy files.

3. Now using Exam Pro software from the computer where Exam Pro software is installed teachers create packaged tests. Teachers log in to the web portal and upload the packaged tests into the respective folder.

4. Through web portal teachers send email to the required number of students and instruct them to log in to the portal and download the packaged tests from the respective folder. Also instruct students to upload their Student's Answer Sheet (.sas files) to another read only folder. This way teacher receives all the .sas files from all the students into one folder in the web portal and they can generate the reports on those .sas files for further analysis.

5. Students log in to the portal, download the test on their computer, take the test and finally upload their Student's Answer Sheet (.sas files) to the portal.

Do I need to purchase multiple licenses of Exam Pro?
You just need to purchase only one license of Exam Pro and install Exam Pro on only one computer. Then create your packages which you can install on unlimited number of computers. If you want to be able to create question banks from multiple computers, then you just need to purchase additional licenses of Exam ($150 each) for the required number of computers. You need to purchase multiple licenses of Exam Pro software ONLY if you want to install Exam Pro software on multiple computers.

For example, suppose your school district or organization has total 100 computers, out of which 10 computers are being used by teachers/instructors for creating question banks. Now you will need one license of Exam Pro ($2500) and ten licenses of Exam ($150 each) Once teachers/instructors have created their question banks i.e. exam (.exm) files using Exam software, then upgrade those exam (.exm) files to Exam Pro format using "Upgrade" tool of Exam Pro software. Then create your package using Exam Pro software. You can install this newly created package on your 100 computers (or unlimited number of computers) or you can put your package on the network server and unlimited number of computers connected to the network server can take the test simultaneously. You can even sell your packaged tests to your customers.

In the above example if you want to have the ability to create the packages from multiple computers within your school district or organization, then only you need to purchase multiple licenses of Exam Pro software.

Do I need to have any other database or software to store the data?
No, you do not need any other database or software to store the data. Exam software does not need any back-end database. Exam software writes the encrypted data into a file with extension .exm. When student takes the test, Exam software writes the data into a file with extension .sas. Everything is file based. To backup your data, you just need to backup these files.

Back to Top

Can I move question bank from one computer to other?
Yes, it is very easy. As all your questions are stored in exam (.exm) file, you can just copy exam (.exm) file to other computer along with any attached graphics and audio/video files. Our competitors use third party database product to store the data and moving database from one computer to other becomes very complex task for the end user. To solve this problem we decided to write the data in exam (.exm) file and files can be moved very easily from one computer to other computer.

Back to Top

Does Exam and Exam Pro software produce unique examination every time?
Yes, when you open exam (.exm) file and start examination, Exam and Exam Pro software selects the questions randomly to generate unique sequence of questions. However you can turn off random selection in security settings. Further, Exam and Exam Pro software gives you ability to merge the questions from different exam (.exm) files, import from plain text files and allows you to print your question bank.

How is Exam and Exam Pro software different from competitors?
Other Test Engines available in the market support only English language. Exam Software supports all languages. You can add graphics, audio and video clips to your question to make it more visual. You can set "General" and "Administrator" password for exam (.exm) file to avoid unauthorized access to question papers. You can set "Usage Restriction" security feature, email notification, question timer and exam timer. Results of examination are stored in encrypted format, so cannot be tampered. When the Test/Exam is conducted you will get Student's Answer Sheet (.sas) file, which contains complete behavior of the student. Exam and Exam Pro software talk using text-to-speech technology. Because of all these features Exam and Exam Pro software are best selling Test Engines in the market. See the product comparison for more details.

I am in the teaching profession, how is Exam Software useful for me?
Exam Software is very useful for Teachers/Professors. As in the teaching profession, you are responsible for writing question papers. In conventional old method, you write the question paper on paper, keep question paper separate from answers and all these things you have to keep in locker to avoid unauthorized access. Using Exam Software you create question paper and everything will be written to a single exam (.exm) file in encrypted format. You can set the General and Administrator password to avoid unauthorized access to your question paper. You can carry your question paper just by putting exam (.exm) file in your briefcase. If your school/institute has computers in the lab, you can conduct the examination on computer. Every student will be given a unique sequence of questions. If you want to conduct the examination on paper, you can print the question paper. Moreover you can merge the questions from different exam (.exm) files in few clicks.

Back to Top

We are a recruiting firm, how is Exam Software useful for us?
Exam Software is useful for recruiting agencies and companies for evaluating candidate's depth of knowledge before hiring them. You create exam (.exm) file for specific Skills Test, set the file for one time usage and email exam (.exm) file to the candidate or put the file on you web server. Ask your candidate to take the Skills Test and email you back the Student's Answer Sheet (.sas) file, which contains all the student's responses. (Note: Candidate can download the free trial version of Exam Software from www.exam-software.com which has fully functional Exam Mode) Online skill test providers charge you per candidate per test. Why pay unnecessarily for every test, which you can manage with Exam Software.

I am a parent of school going kids, how is Exam Software useful for me?
You can improve your kid's educational skills by taking exams at home, not by sitting hours next to him. Just allot him the question paper which you can create using Exam Software. Using "Merge" utility you can issue unique test to your kid. You can conduct exams unattended using "Usage Restriction" feature. Every time you start the examination, program shuffles all the questions and selects them randomly from the database, which reduces the chances of memorizing the questions. You can keep the exam records in .rec file, which gives you ability to monitor the performance of your kid.

How is Exam Software useful for schools to manage the examinations?
Suppose your school has a computer lab with 25 computers connected to a network server. You can create question paper and put the exam (.exm) file on the network server. 25 students can simultaneously open the exam (.exm) file from server in Exam Mode and take the examination. There will be 25 Student's Answer Sheet (.sas) files, one for each student. These Student's Answer Sheet (.sas) files will be created on the server because your exam (.exm) file is on the server. Thus you will get centralized administration of the examination. Later you can import Student's Answer Sheet (SAS) into exam records (.rec) file, where you can query the exam records for highest score or lowest score. You can take print out of exam records of individual student or all the students. Exam Pro may be economical if you have many computers, because you can install packaged tests on unlimited number of computers.

Another example, suppose your school district has total 500 computers, out of which 10 computers are being used by teachers for creating question banks. Now you need one license of Exam Pro ($2500) and ten licenses of Exam ($150 each) Once teachers have created their question banks i.e. exam (.exm) files using Exam software, then upgrade those exam (.exm) files to Exam Pro format using "Upgrade" tool of Exam Pro software. Then create your package using Exam Pro software. You can install this newly created package on your 500 computers (or unlimited number of computers). You can even sell your packaged tests to your customers.

I have data in plain text (.txt) file, can I import this data in to exam (.exm) file?
Yes, you can use "Import" utility to import the data from plain text (.txt) files to exam (.exm) file. Import utility is very useful for customers who already have their data in electronic form. Convert you existing data into plain text (.txt) file and use "Import" utility to import into exam (.exm) file.

What happens if I lost my software, the originally downloaded installation file and the registration key?
Generally one should backup the originally downloaded installation file and save the registration key in safe place in case you need it in future to avoid using our paid service.

Since we charge our customers only one time license fee and provide updates/upgrades free of charge and there is no support maintenance fee, in case you lost your downloaded installation file and/or the registration key and/or trying to move the license key to another computer without first removing the license from the original computer and whenever you request for the download link and/or registration key we charge "download link and registration key retrieval fee" to cover the expenses of the manual intervention to help you with the download link and the registration key. This fee would be $25 for Exam software and $250 for Exam Pro software. A separate new invoice will be emailed to you for making the payment for such services on demand.
