All the tools you need to run world-class medical exams

We’ve been supplying exam software to Royal Colleges and Medical Schools for over 30 years. We understand what’s needed to ensure your MCQ and OSCE exams run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

Today’s Medical Schools are facing increasing pressures on budgets, time and resources. This, coupled with the complex nature of running high stakes medical exams, means institutions are increasingly investing in exam management software to help streamline processes and free up time.

The software can either be client or cloud hosted. With cloud hosting you scale as you need, whilst we manage the servers, security and software updates. Plus, it works on a wide range of devices and operating systems. This enables you to deliver exams on any Ipad, Android device, Windows PC or Apple Mac.

Additionally, it’s compatibility with paper exam delivery systems means that its possible to continue to run paper exams alongside online exams if you need to.

Deliver OSCEs the way you need

Setting up and running OSCE examinations can be complicated and stressful. With different clinical scenarios, plus the allocation of candidates and examiners to different stations to consider – it can be a logistical nightmare.

The eSystem removes the complexity of running clinical skills assessments. It’s intuitive interface makes it simple to set up eOSCEs with as many candidates, stations and examiners (including multiple examiners for the same candidate at the same station) as you need. And the event tagging functionality allows you to run OSCEs over multiple days, circuits, sessions and locations.

The blueprinting features ensure its simple to check that learning outcomes and clinical scenarios are covered.

During the assessment, examiners enter the candidates mark into a secure web interface on a tablet. This can be done online (providing visibility and assurance the exam is progressing and data is being captured) or, if Wi-Fi is not available, via our offline app.

The app stores the information until the tablet is online again. In addition, there’s the benefit of a review screen at the end of the exam so the examiner can review all stations and check they haven’t omitted anything.

The eSystem’s flexibility makes it possible to easily deliver OSCEs in a way that best suits you.

Performance insights

Anyone involved in exams is keen to see feedback into performance. Whether you’re an examination manager seeking information on questions and exams or a student wanting prompt results with feedback to assist your learning.

With eSystem’s in-built analysis tools it’s easy to provide performance insights on every question, station or exam. And, equipped with this information, exam managers are able to make improvements to future assessments.

Providing feedback to students is simple. With eSystem’s student feedback reports you can provide detailed and timely feedback. The personalised reports allows them to see their performance by station or learning outcome and so on. Furthermore, they can also see how they compared against their peers.
