OWL Testing Software Introduces Affordable Online Test Delivery Software for Individual Instructors and Small Businesses
Pittsburgh, PA (PRLog) 10 December 2012 – OWL Testing Software, a premier provider of Web-based test management systems for more than a decade, announced today that they are launching OWL Individual Instructor. This new product offering allows teachers and small businesses to deliver online testing to examinees at an affordable price through the company's web-based software. With this new product, OWL is responding a market demand for efficient online test delivery without the financial commitment of an enterprise-level test management system. Individual Instructor is available or a low monthly subscription price by visiting the OWL Testing Software website.
“We recognized a need in the market for a quality online testing tool at a price that would make it accessible at to teachers and small business owners.” explains Chris Dalessandri, OWL Testing Software president and CEO, “There are many assessment situations where installing a complete test management system is unfortunately not attainable. That is why we have expanded our offering to include a product to help these instructors deliver quality testing.” Mr. Dalessandri continues, “In the interest of developing a test builder and delivery system that is responsive to the individual teacher's needs, we polled existing teacher/users and conducted extensive beta testing with instructors throughout the world. By focusing and refining many of the most commonly accessed features of our software we have created OWL Individual Instructor -- a dependable way to deliver online testing to a finite group of examinees.”
OWL Individual Instructor leverages many of the fundamental benefits of OWL Testing Software. Perhaps most important is the ability to deliver a secure online test that students can take from any Web-enabled workstation. In this way, instructors can deliver their test using any computer from any location – the classroom, a student's home, a library, community center or, if available, a computer lab. The product features an easy-to-use single page test builder allowing users to quickly build or reuse items from their test bank. Online assessment items can be created using five different question types – multiple choice, true/false, yes/no, check-all-that-apply and short answer. Test items can include images; multiple choice selections may be randomized; and questions can be delivered in a defined or random order to meet the classroom needs. With the virtual keyboard, students can respond to short answer questions in more than 200 languages.
“OWL users are looking for a tool that not only enhances learning and automates assessment but also adds efficiency to their administrative tasks.” Mr. Dalessandri continues, “Teachers find many of OWL Individual Instructor's automated features beneficial. For example, with Individual Instructor, all test items are auto-scored. An online roster builder makes it easy to quickly set up classes or list of up to 100 examines. And, familiar gradebook reporting allows the instructor to monitor class progress by logging in from any secure browser.”
