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

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.

High-Resolution Images

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.

Test Assembly

Test Assembly and Blueprints

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. This includes the use of blueprinting functionality where Examiners can apply blueprints when creating a test, and this can be used in a variety of ways allowing flexibility to pick questions per paper, per session or per-candidate. Our multi-part paper feature enables exams to be run in separate sections or on separate days and for marking and results to be combined.

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.
