Excel in your examinations – with our new ‘spreadsheet’
Having 22 different question types at your disposal, examiners working with our software already have plenty of choice to adjust their digital exams to their needs. Nonetheless, we listen to the suggestions and needs of our clients and the fluidly changing requirements for digital examinations. That’s also why we decided to add yet another question type to our high-quality examination software’s arsenal.
One could say the new function coined ‘spreadsheet’ is a turbocharged version of the already existing question type ‘MS Excel’ because of the additional features. To be specific, we created this new function to enable examiners to fill in numbers, text or formulas directly into the individual spreadsheets. Users can now also lock specific columns and cells for participants and only make specific ones editable. “It is entirely up to the exam creators how they use this function. They can also let participants enter their own formulas – for example to help calculate percentages”, says CEO Bernhard Waglechner.

Just like with other popular question types such as ‘multiple choice’ or ‘numeric’ we programmed this one in a way that it generates the result automatically. The content creators only have to input the correct answers in form of text, numbers or a number range and also define the number of points to get. The rest is done by our system; saving precious time not correcting the participants answers.
Inspired by the financial sector
We developed this exciting new question type because of an expanding demand within the finance sector. These question types really cater for the accounting and controlling sector, but obviously not exclusively, and really ensure that a lot of the heavy lifting is taken off the examiners and thus saving them time. We believe that fulfilling new demands and adapting our software to changing customer needs in the digital examination space helps us create the best tool out there.
