Assessment Management System: Why Do You Need It?

Thursday May 7, 2020

 ‘Education is not just about going to school and getting a degree. It’s just about widening your knowledge and absorbing the truth about life’  –Shakunthala Devi

Whether you learn or teach, assessing where you or your student stands are an integral part of every learning process. This is usually done through tests and traditionally tests are either verbal or written. Written tests are more popular due to their convenience.

When technology intervenes, we expect a better way, which in the case of assessments is by means of Assessment Management Systems

Let’s delve deeper…

What is Assessment Management System?

Assessment Management System is basically technology leveraged to assess what your child has learned, through different types of questions such as ‘Fill in the blanks, Multiple Choice Questions, Match the list, Yes or No questions’, etc…

It incorporates personalized adaptive testing modules that run in a systematic and continuous mode to get best results.

Different Types of Assessment Questions

Question types include

1) Multiple Choice Questions(MCQ’s)

  • With a single answer
  • With multiple answers
  • True/False

2) Match the following

3) Fill in the blanks

  • Short answers

4) Order the following

5) All these assessment questions have pre-defined answers

As these questions have fixed responses, automatic validation is possible

Now that you have a general idea about the technology, let’s see what it’s benefits are….

Benefits of Assessment Management System

  • Teachers can check students ‘understanding level after teaching a topic
  • Teachers can provide proper guidance after assessing the tests
  • Students can attend self- assessment to analyze their level of understanding

The online Assessment Management System will be a helping hand for you, as you can teach the portions in school and the students can have their tests at home.

  • Assess Student Learning Process Systematically and Monitor the progress to give them Real-Time Guidance
