Question bank software to improve performance

At the heart of the eSystem is our advanced question bank – enabling you to improve the performance of your questions and assessments.

You can set up the question bank with as many groups as you need – and each group can have an unlimited number of subgroups.

At your fingertips you’ll have a package of statistics for each question and exam, which allows you to weed out the questions that aren’t performing. You’ll be able to easily identify questions that haven’t been used in a while, ones that need updating due to ambiguous language or unreliable distractors.

And you’ll even be able to identify who authors your best questions as well as see at a glance who changed which question and when (as well as what the changes were, naturally!)

Advanced blueprinting features allows you to match learning outcomes to the proposed assessment, ensuring that your exam covers all areas of the syllabus at the right level of difficulty.

Our advanced question banking and blueprinting functionality allows you to raise your exam standards each and every time.

“We are very excited by how the eSystem will change the way we author and share
questions, develop exams and provide feedback to learners and curriculum management.”

Dr Valérie Dory, McGill University, Faculty of Medicine
