Learning and Assessment Software for eLearning


Anand Software and Training, an innovative eLearning provider, released “Learning and Assessment Software  (LAAS)”  to help provide eLearning tools to students, institutes, and organizations.  The software is a complete solution for offering content and assessment exams online, be it an academic institute or an organization. The software consists of four modules as mentioned below:

    1. Author module
    2. Content module
    3. Exam module
    4. Reporting

The author module offers authors a means to create users, groups, exams, and content. The author may import or create a list of candidates and assign the select candidates to one or more groups. The groups may in turn be assigned one or more content/exam modules created by the author. Granular control of candidates, content, and exams is provided in the software. As may be seen in the figure above, it consists of  Author options, Exam Options, Group Options, Candidate Options, Content Options, and Import/Export. In a typical flow chart, the admin creates authors, and then the author(s) creates content, exams, and add groups (or classes) to one or more exams. 

The Content module delivers content in various forms, including plain text, rich text, pdf, and multimedia. The content may be organized hierarchically. It is also possible to embed youtube videos in the content, without the need for reproducing or reformating the youtube videos. Also, Microsoft Office documents may be delivered with the content engine.

The exam module is responsible for delivering assessment tests to the candidates as chosen by the author. Questions may consist of simple text/html, pdf, exhibit-based, or multimedia. Several exam configuration options such as disabling some navigation buttons (for example, you don’t want the candidate to go back or provide a review) are provided.  As may be seen in the picture above, several features such as text resizing, full-screen view, night view, bookmarking, etc provided.

The reporting module analyzes and provides the results in the format that is configured by the author. The overall pass, category wise or sub-category-wise scores may be displayed. It is possible to provide conditional pass criteria such as declaring an overall pass only if a candidate passes certain categories or sub-categories. The statistics are available on the server-side for further processing and analysis.

Note that the software is specifically designed for delivering content and assessments to students, and not a school management software that is widely available elsewhere. Rich features are built into the software for content creation, assessment, and reporting.  Download a free trial version of the software from the product home page, Learning and Assessment Software.

About SimExams CBT: CBT, short for Computer Based Test, has replaced traditional paper-pen test in most cases. In CBT, a candidate answers the test on a personal computer (PC) using the keyboard and mouse to “flip through” and “answer” your test questions that appear on a computer monitor. Usually most of the computer based tests are MCQs (Multiple Choice Questions) wherein the candidate is required to find the best answer(s). Most of the educational institutes and test centers have adopted CBT in one form or the other to provide administer candidate evaluation.

The Computer Based Test Software combines the CBT Author and CBT Exam Engine modules to create centralized question database which can be populated and edited by various Authors.
The Author Engine enables an author to perform several activities including Creating, editing, and/or deleting a test/Groups and Candidate profiles, Questions.
Exam Engine module allows candidates to import the exams provided by the author and then take the exams.

You may download free trial version of the Computer Based Testing Software from the website, and try the same. CCNA Exam Discount Offer
