As an OWL System Administrator, you may be asking 'What group do I use when I'm creating users?' Should a certain person be an Instructor? a Rater? a Proctor? all three? This article will help you make that selection and explain why it is important.
This software release represents a major upgrade and introduces innovations to the online test building, test delivery, and reporting modules of the system.
The OWL team is happy to let you know that the OWL Tester no longer defaults to using a Java applet for playing and recording Audio files nor does it default to Flash for Video playback. When it is possible, the latest version of the OWL Tester is now using HTML5 for audio and video files.
With OWL version 4.1 our developers have gone beyond introducing new features and improving functionality; they have launched a whole new way to build your tests.
With this latest version, OWL is migrating to a data warehouse storage and retrieval model. This model affords OWL users increased speed and flexibility and offers many reporting enhancements.
OWL version 4.0 provides users with an updated interface as well as many tools meant to help them easily navigate the software and build online tests with even greater efficiency.
With version 3.8, we have added enhanced file exchange and online security capabilities to help our users who create and administer online testing. OWL's new parsing report gives more advanced test creators one place to see all the system elements on their test.
OWL version 3.7 offers new features, like our new Translation Item, that can expand your language testing capabilities. And now, with OWL's Automatic Notifications and Student Self-Registration, you can have even more ways to communicate with your students.
This release helps users to improve the reliability of student response, improves the efficiency of online test administration, and improve the test authoring and editing functions.
