eMedley PA saves you time, energy, and resources by automating your entire assessment process in a central online location. It handles everything from the administration of assessments to the production of detailed reports based on the specific competencies and outcomes your program tracks. Each system is configured to meet the specific needs of your individual program.
Create interactive exams with complex question types and mapped curriculum standards. Customize the testing experience with features such as proctoring, test review, single-question-per-page, security codes, lockdown browser, and much more.
2. Student Scheduling & Test Assignment
Schedule tests using either the lockdown browser or an online setting. Students can download tests for offline test taking within the assigned time window. The student assessment module supports every scheduling need from security codes to extended time. When assigning the test, instructors can choose to use advanced features such as question randomization and configurable retakes. To ensure academic honesty, screen, video, and audio proctoring are testing options.
After students have completed the customizable test review, use a variety of automatic grading tools such as rubrics and assigned answers to complete grading in half the time. Need to change the point values for a question? Give extra credit? Curve a test? No problem.
4. Analytics & Intelligence
Use advanced reports and intuitive dashboards to assess strengths and weaknesses of students relative to standards and competencies, question quality, average performance, and curriculum improvement.
Our custom lockdown browser helps promote extremely secure testing. Maintain the integrity of your exams by preventing students from using other programs and disabling common computer features like copy & pasting, screenshotting, and printing during the exam. The browser supports on and offline testing and is supported on PCs, Macs, and iPads.
With the shift towards team-based learning, incorporating Individual Readiness Assurance Testing (iRAT) and Team Readiness Assurance Testing (tRAT) into the curriculum gives new insight into student readiness. These new testing methodologies combined with Scratch-Off Style Testing provide administrators with the most advanced testing system.
Analytics and Dashboards
Reporting and analytics are incredibly important when it comes to understanding testing behavior. Comprehensive and intelligent dashboards and reports provide immediate feedback regarding student strengths and weaknesses, question quality, and average performance across time. These reports provide immediate feedback on what is and isn’t working to ensure that testing is tailored to your students’ needs.
eMedley PA’s version control feature for questions and tests is extremely robust and allows for the creation of multiple versions that can be used and reused. Editing questions will automatically create new versions without affecting past or current tests.
It’s easy to view and compare all past and current versions of questions and tests. Performance tracking on each version of the question and test is also available.
The student assessment module offers real-time test progress updates where administrators can view students’ answers and current page as students take the exam.
Additionally, it makes the test-taking experience for students easy-to-navigate and intuitive while offering a wide range of features for increased exam success.
For more open-ended questions, manual grading is necessary. eMedley PA still helps graders, though. Our intuitive interfaces offer multiple options for approaching grading. Graders can choose to grade by student or by question. We also offer grading rubrics to streamline grading and eliminate subjectivity in grading open-ended questions.
