“What’s in it for me?”
You know what? We think that is a fair question.
Because in the end, changes – like using new software – do have a major impact on your work situation and affected employees and students deserve to know the consequence of these changes.
If you want to know how WISEflow will change your work and study experience, look below.
You can participate in paperless exam flows, where assignments are handed out and papers handed in digitally on the same platform. Everything is managed in an easy-to-use interface, supplying you with a great overview of the entire exam process.
You can also use your own computer or tablet for all exams. This can give a greater feeling of security in digital exams, as this is a unit you know and trust. If you are a student with disabilities, you can apply your usual helping software, like screen magnifiers and read-out-loud-programs. This ensures equal treatment of disabled students in exam settings.
Your paper is automatically backed up. No worrying about sudden loss of power or forgetting to click save before closing the document. WISEflow backs up your work five times a minute and makes sure a local file is available, should you experience network failure.
You can create exams and assess assignments directly in the browser.
The author module enables you to create interactive tests and exams. You can enable video, audio and aiding applications in every question if you want to. WISEflow allows for great creative freedom in the creation of exams.
In the assessment module, you can read, comment, and provide direct feedback on all handed-in exams whenever and wherever you wish. With electronic management of assessments, all you need is a computer or tablet with a web browser.
Using WISEflow means you can create and grade exams anytime and anywhere you like, allowing you greater freedom in the planning of your own work time.
Using WISEflow means gathering all your exam related tasks on one platform. Every single administrative and coordinative task.
With electronic management of assessment, you can manage and set up digital exam flows, register and administrate students and assessors, coordinate with exam authors and academics, and automate the distribution of assignments and archiving of papers, all using the same module in WISEflow.
You can even set up exams with integration to your existing student information systems, reducing the administrative burden.
Worried about WISEflow being a new and complex software? There is no need for that. Our implementation team makes sure you get the right training before using WISEflow and our support team is happy to help you with any request imaginable.
This means your time and planning resources are better used, freeing time for your other important tasks.
As CIO at a higher institute of learning, combining exams and assessments with an online platform might give rise to certain questions regarding security and scalability.

One of the foremost effects of implementing a digital exam platform is elevated levels of satisfaction and happiness among students and employees.
Enabling students and employees to use a digital exam platform during exam periods reduces the stress that is often associated with exams and assessments. Gathering every step of the exam and assessment process on one single platform allows for both the students and your faculty to focus on their academic tasks instead of worrying about logistics.
As an added benefit, a digital exam platform allows you to save money on the labour hours a traditional pen-and-paper exam requires.
Oh, and you save paper. A lot of paper.
