Best Practices for Setting Up Folders

Getting Organized with Folders

Questions and Assessments can be easily organized into folders for all users to access, add, review, edit, share, and manage. Users can be provided access rights to each folder and all the contents. Their access rights can be limited to view only or editing permissions. This allows great flexibility when setting up your exam management system.

Creating Folders

ExamSoft recommends setting up a system that logically arranges questions by how they will be posted to exams and assessments, or by when they will be administered. Question folders should consolidate questions by course, content, covered, or exams; whereas assessment folders should store exams based on courses and semesters. This allows users to review previously delivered assessments and make changes based where necessary.

This organization structure allows users to quickly access and manage  those assessments that are specific to the courses they teach. All assessments are arranged by course and date administered. This makes it incredibly easy to review assessments as changes are made year after year. This organization also permits exam review committees to pull up the questions used on specific exams. 

This organization structure allows users to quickly access and manage those assessments that are specific to the courses they teach. All questions are then prearranged in grouped sets based on content and level of knowledge or skill sets. This becomes handy when wanting to assess specific learning outcomes from various levels based on completed course work.
