Easy to prepare. Seconds to score. Minutes to analyse.

The technical intelligence in the eSystem removes the challenges of running online written tests and exams. Couple this with the ease of setting them up – and the automatic marking of online assessments, it leaves you firmly in control of your assessments.

Designed with flexibility in mind, you choose the question style you need.

Our eSystem manages both online and paper-based written exams easily too. Candidates can take their formative or summative digital exams on their preferred device, securely. And if you are running paper exams, assessments are created within the eSystem and then the scanned results are imported back into the software.

“The contribution Speedwell has made to improving the speed and accuracy of our OSCE and MCQ assessments has been invaluable.”

Gaynor Jones, UCL Medical School
