Researching & gaining information about online assessments is fine, but when it comes to walking the path of transition, things get messed up. “Real to virtual” transition is a major concern for faculty. Luckily, it can be achieved quickly with a reliable cloud-based student information system. The virtual path asks for replacing the following protocols of schools with the given e-protocols.

Exam center online exam classroom

  • In an offline school examination setup, students are supposed to go to the exam center for successfully being a part of the examination.
  • Here, with virtual exam software, students are supposed to reach the online exam classroom! The next step describes how-

Hall tickets e-tickets with Ids and passwords

  • To enter the hall, students have to submit/show their hall ticket to the exam monitoring teacher or authority.
  • To enter the virtual exam center, the User Id and password becomes the “hall ticket”! Students are given unique Ids with passwords; they need to login to the system using credentials and a device for internet connection, of course!

The chronology of events is easy. Unlike paper-pen based offline exams, online exams save time, effort, and unnecessary hassle of exam conduction & make the entire journey super smooth.

  • Question papers are set by teachers based on the teaching curriculum & syllabus
  • Students get connected via a speedy internet
