Demo Flows
Before you are due to complete a real assessment, we recommend you familiarise yourself with WISEflow through a demo flow. This will help you check that the software is installed correctly and you can familiarise yourself with the available tools.
The different types of demo flows are:
  • FLOWassign: Here you can test the upload of a PDF-based assignment (no lockdown browser required).
  • FLOWmulti: Try out different interactive question types and if the lockdown browser is correctly installed (requires that the lockdown browser is installed before starting the demo flow). Starting the demo will close all running programs on the computer.

    Please be aware that we will simulate loss of internet connection during the test.

  • FLOWmulti – Advanced: Tests with a set assignment containing the more advanced type of interactive questions (no lockdown browser required). This can be set to a custom assignment with more relevant question types for your institution.
  • FLOWlock: Try to write an assignment in the lockdown browser. You can also try the webcam, drawing tool, and other available tools (starting the demo will close all running programs on the computer).

    Please be aware that we will simulate loss of internet connection during the test.
