Is there an option for instructors to create print tests from WPLS?

Not at this time. We will assess the demand for this in SS17.

    Hi,

    Would like to emphasize the importance of the print test functionality provided by our Digital Solutions in Asia:

    • Not all institutions have sufficient space to offer WileyPLUS Learning Space in a proctored environment to govern the integrity and successful deployment of high stake examinations.
    • Furthermore majority of the institutions are governed by examination boards which implement very stringent requirements in Asia.
    • Examples: Ensuring Student verification, not accepting digital delivery due to unpredictability of downtime, type of questions & answers required

     

    • Majority of our adoptions are conducted in a blended learning environment, instructors conduct classroom discussions utilizing our questions in WileyPLUS.

     

    • The auto generation of solutions, when preparing test scripts is a important functionality that directly addresses course needs for academics; test and assignment requirements.
    • Normally several test sets are prepared in order to address any unforeseen circumstances, e.g. valid absentee or multiple sittings due to large cohorts of students.
    • This is an important tangible benefit: Saving prep. time for academics, which currently is not mentioned or not even possible for some of our competitor systems.

     

    • During examination boards across Asia, one requirement is to provide sample tests, assignment and even examination scripts which are randomly picked and marked by external examiners. The Print Test functionality again plays an important role to serve these requirements.

     

    • Most of the private institutions across Asia, offering distant learning or off campus courses from UK & Australia universities conduct exams boards after all major examinations. This is normally done by the University validation unit.Hope that this explanation will help prioritize this option in the near future.

     

    Thanks & Regards

    Raj

    The school requires "proof" (a copy) of test that is conducted online.
