OWL version 6.0 includes important under-the-hood upgrades to make the test management system more responsive and more scalable. This release also includes important changes to the user interface to make the OWL TMS more flexible and increase compatibility with mobile devices. While all OWL hosted users will have access to the upgraded system, changes to the user interface will be most apparent to System Administrators, Test Administrators and Instructors. We realize that changes to the interface can initially be uncomfortable for our users. However, we think that you will quickly become familiar with the the new layout and we hope that you will see the benefits of the new simplified interface.
