Assessment Tools from TestReach
Collaborative Question Authoring
TestReach enables medical colleges to streamline the creation of medical questions and easily manage and structure the question bank. No matter how many writers are included in the authoring process, or where they are located, our clear workflows enable a structured approach to the review process, before a question can be approved and added to the bank.
Range of Question Types
TestReach has over 50+ question types which facilitates the creation of very immersive and engaging medical assessments. Multi-media questions using high-resolution images, videos and audio, alongside image labelling questions, drag & drop and many different variations on auto-scored question types mean any clinical situation can be assessed in an in-depth manner. Presenting clinical case studies alongside multiple answer options is also straightforward, using our innovative interactive candidate canvas.
For detailed examination of medical photographs such as X-Rays, TestReach has the facility to include high-resolution images in questions with no loss of detail. The candidate can easily zoom in closely on any area of the image to inspect it more closely.
Medical schools have to run many hundreds of different types of examinations per year, for thousands of candidates. This requires a robust test assembly solution that automates the creation of exam papers, according to the required difficulty rating, topic or clinical situation. TestReach has a wide range of functionality to make the process of assembling exam papers straightforward, accurate and secure.
Exam Delivery Options
TestReach enables medical schools to run computer-based assessments online or offline, depending on internet connectivity levels. Exams can be run in test centres or on mobile devices. For non-clinical exams, you can run exams online using our integral remote invigilation, which enables candidates to sit a secure exam from any location, while being monitored over-the-web by a trained TestReach invigilator.
Marking, Moderation and Reporting
The majority of TestReach question types can be auto-scored, but for exams that require manual marking TestReach has a comprehensive marking module, supported by a range of comprehensive reports and all activity is audit-trailed. Our results moderation tool allows for straightforward review and adjustment of results. There is a full suite of analytics to present statistical information on results data, as well as multiple candidate feedback options.
