Exam software to manage paper assessments

Every institution has its own timeframe for moving their exam tools and assessments online. That is why we have software specifically to support paper  assessments.

MultiQuest is our classic multiple choice exam software – written specifically to run on individual PCs and work with paper marking sheets and OMR scanners. Each exam is run as an individual event and the scanned results are imported back into the software. After the exam is finished, you can see the performance of that exam and its candidates. MultiQuest also works alongside our eSystem software – allowing you to get all the benefits of an advanced question bank when running paper and/or online assessments.


CliniQuest enables you to run effective paper-based objective structured clinical exams (OSCEs). This software is installed onto individual PCs and simplifies the OSCE process. The paper marking sheets are scanned using an OMR scanner and the results are imported back into the software. It allows you to run complex practical exams and gives you accurate scoring and reporting for each exam.

Don’t let a lack of sound software to run your paper multiple choice or OSCE assessments hold you back.


“We have been using Speedwell’s MultiQuest and QuestionBank for a number of years and have found the software very intuitive and adaptable to our needs. The system has allowed us to deliver hundreds of successful exams during this time. We have always been happy with the level of service and support provided by Speedwell. “
