On the other end, this generation is all about – click, select and submit! With interactive, fun, and engaging online exam & assessment tools, children don’t get nervous, instead they tend to focus better on questions being asked via fun multimedia visuals & audios. In certain instances, where children are not able to operate the system due to physical disability of hand, they can utilize features such as voice to text converter & carry out exams!
