Fontys University of Applied Sciences was looking for a reliable and integrated method within the testing application to prevent fraud (e.g., use of unauthorized sources) during digital knowledge assessments. We administer these tests on a student's laptop under controlled conditions at a Fontys location. The Schoolyear product works as expected, and our partnership with Schoolyear is satisfactory.
The tooling of Schoolyear however provides our education teams a most simple efficient and effective solution to prepare and take digital exams using most common end-user client systems owned by our school or students (BYOD). The involvement of IM /IT and related costs of overhead now has been reduced until nihil. Our teachers are back in control of their digital secured exams.
Wageningen University & Research sought a flexible solution for fraud prevention during exams administered on students' own laptops. Schoolyear allows us to utilize our educational spaces more flexibly and reduce the need for fixed PC rooms.
We wanted to introduce safe and robust on-campus digital testing where at several moments 800+ students could be taking the same exam, however no combination of exam rooms had 800+ computers available at those moments. For us Schoolyear was the perfect and robust solution that we were looking for, as this allowed us to use the laptops of the students in regular exam rooms.
ROCMN has been involved in the development and testing of Schoolyear since the very first releases. At that time, we were promised a solution for securely administering digital exams on BYOD, which is user-friendly for both students and teachers. Additionally, we wanted a solution that is scalable and requires minimal effort from our technical and functional administrators. I can now say that Schoolyear has more than fulfilled these promises!
