WISEflow offers exam modules, called "flows" and supports the following exam types:
- Open book essay exam, portfolio exam involving multiple files/file types, closed-book essay exams, open or closed book questionnaire-based tests and oral examination.
There are three different ways for participants to take part in exams in WISEflow: file upload type exams, conducting an exam within WISEflow or attendance type exams.
Two flow types are available for open book assignments where participants upload their submission either as a PDF or in a different digital format. The manager determines the appropriate flow type.
This flow type is mainly used for coursework or open-book exams where the submission is a PDF file. The main submission can be paired with appendix material, where no specific file type is required. FLOWassign can be set up with or without an assignment. Participants can submit their work once a file has been uploaded and, if relevant, the required cover sheet fields have been completed.
This flow type allows submissions in various digital formats, such as PDF, Word, Excel, audio and video files, etc. When the participation period ends, the files are made available to the markers to be downloaded and reviewed.
Participation and Submission
These flow types are designed and typically used for closed-book, on-site exams to be completed within a limited period and without aids. The assignment can consist of a PDF file or multiple-choice question types. You access the exam through WISEflow and answer the exam question(s) in a locked browser.
With FLOWlock, the participant's computer is secured, allowing only the use of a text editor within WISEflow, preventing the use of online aids during on-site exams. The participants write their assignment using the editor and hand it in within the time frame (participation period) set by the manager. When the participation period ends, the markers assigned to the flow review the submissions using the marking tool and submit the assessment (marked work).
This flow type is used for exams with multiple question types, including multiple-choice, maths, interactive questions etc. The assignment can contain both auto-scored and manually scored questions. The exam can be set up with or without the use of the lockdown browser depending on the type of exam. After the end of the participation period, the markers can see the number of points earned by each participant and assess their individual answers.
These exam types do not require participants to submit anything but are designed to enable administrative support for registration of participant attendance or oral examinations.
FLOWattend is a module for the registration of participant attendance for compulsory classes, events, etc. The marker can record if the participant is present or absent and share the grade with the participant. In the overview, the participant can see the start and end date for the flow and, if made available, the grade. It is not possible for the participant to hand in on a FLOWattend.
FLOWoral enables administrative support of oral exams. The manager can schedule the examinations over several days and distribute the participants as needed. The marker can use the flow as the ordered list of participants and exam schedule. The marker can take notes digitally as the participant performs live at the exam and the notes can be shared with the participant afterwards.
