OWL offers many features to automate and improve your assessment process. Automation features within the test management system include user imports, self-registration, dynamic feedback and event triggered messaging. Some users take automation even further by taking advantage of the OWL TMS authentication API to upload users. Using LDAP or ADFS server verification, users benefit by having only one user id and password to remember and institutions can maintain a single, secure storage mechanism for user identification across multiple systems. System integration enables site licensed or dedicated SaaS customers to move student/examinee, class and scoring information to between OWL and their student or employee information systems.
We are excited to offer OWL Integration with Learning Tools Interoperability, the standard protocol developed by the IMS Global Learning Consortium that allows services like OWL to integrate with your Learning Management System (LMS) as single-sign-on tools. Learn more about the IMS Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) Implementation Guide. If you are interested in exploring this option for your organization please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Save valuable administrative time by allowing students and candidates to register themselves for your online testing. This feature is great for placement tests, self-assessments and certification exams. OWL offers test administrators numerous options for managing the examinee self-registration process including open and closed registrations and the option of requiring a confirmation email.Watch a Video on Auto Registration
Improve the efficiency of communications throughout your assessment cycle by adding notifications to your OWL Assignments. These are emails that are sent automatically when triggered by an OWL system event, and message templates can be customized with system variables. For example, you can automatically notify the administrator when someone registers for a test, email raters when a response is ready to rate, or send an examinee an email allowing them to view their grade or rating.
OWL's Test Conversion Services allow you to re-purpose your favorite tried and proven test content. We want you to have one place to go for all your online testing needs. That is why OWL Testing Software allows you to import your ready-built tests from an expanding list of content publishers. OWL's built-in QTI (Question and Test Interoperability) Import Tool allows for effortless migration of your previously created test content to OWL from many other common learning applications. If now is time to upgrade your paper-based tests and teaching materials to OWL's web-based platform, conversion of your existing materials can be headache-free.

OWL Testing Software customers form a network of schools and language professionals who freely share language test content with each other. We call this free test content the “OWL Community Library.” These are FREE Simulated Oral Proficiency Interview (SOPI) type tests, as well as, listening and reading tests that your faculty can start using immediately. And, unlike a library book, you never have to return these tests. They are yours to keep in your OWL online test item bank. You can customize the items for your curriculum and requirements using the OWL Test Management System. The library includes canned language skills tests for many of the most popular languages—including Spanish, French, German, Japanese and Italian, with more being added to the test library all the time.
