Difficulty Level – Make things less difficult for tutors

Difficulty level of a question refers to the ratio of incorrect to number of times asked. Suppose a question is asked 6 times and the number of times answered correctly is 2, the difficulty level of a question is 67%.

Question View

We can further analyzed from the incorrect answers the most common wrong answers was given 4 times, that shows us the most common doubt/myth about the question asked  and as a tutor we would save on the future occurrence of a situation by giving more details on the concept of the question and clear the common doubt.

This analysis helps us(tutors) project the chances of question being answered correctly if asked.  As a smart paper setter always decide on the demography of the successful candidates based on the setting of paper.

Looking in to the difficulty level of the questions in the bank we can easily decide on the combination of questions in order to get the desired number of successful candidates and also clearly filter out the cream.

This makes the paper setting as per our wish less difficult!

Question Bank – The Creation of Real Wealth

Once the user opens an account with SpeedExam, the very first question that arises is of creating a question bank and how to initiate the online tests, because for each tests we need relevant questions without which the software is not properly utilized.

The original/organic content is always the core of the institution; the content is the best weapon to fight competition. We have stressed more on creation of original content and not providing ready-made question banks for taking tests. This is the reason why we have deliberately designed SpeedExam, so that the optimum use of organic content can be done by the institution.

Initially, it sounds difficult & tedious to take this path (creating organic content) but when we get the results, we would defiantly feel astonished. The effort once taken would pay us for years to come.

Let us have an idea on reducing the complications in creating question bank

We have, with our more than 3 years experience in managing more than 50000 questions, learned how to reduce the complications in creation of question banks.

1. Name the sections with proper details.
2. Create an exclusive login for data entry operator & avoid access to administrative details.
3. Import your questions from excel file.
4. Use Math Editor and special characters for writing equations.
5. For questions specifying tabular data use HTML Editor.
6. Always take backup for your question bank. You can also restore your questions by importing excel files.

Hope these ideas would help you to create your USP.

We have mastered in data-entry work taking at-most care of the intellectual property of an institution and can accurately enter the questions from text file, word, PDF, or even hand written content. We would love to assist you for your data entry work as an additional service.

Happy Testing 🙂
