Question Bank Analytics – An Overview
Now, learning and assessments can be conducted online, in a highly virtual manner, thanks to cutting-edge technologies such as online examination systems, on screen evaluation systems, online question bank management systems, etc. These innovative solutions have transformed the education ecosystem substantially.
In this blog, we are going to discuss more about question bank analytics, why these are essential for businesses and institutions.
Before we delve into question bank analytics, let’s understand what a question bank is.
A question bank is the collection of questions that are crafted based on the subject, syllabus, skill sets, and difficulty levels, etc.
There are online question bank management systems that cater to the end-to-end process of question bank creation, execution, and distribution.
Question Bank Analytics helps institutions and organisations gauge the relevancy, proficiency and performance of the existing question banks.
The institutes store thousands of questions in the Eklavvya question bank, the questions stored on Eklavvya portal can be sorted subject, topic, difficulty and mark wise in the question bank tab of Eklavvya. These question banks are exportable if the institute needs to keep the question bank in digital format at their local PCs.
While repurposing the questions, it is important to analyse the question bank available with the institute in an online exam portal, Eklavvya supports the functionality of Question bank analytics, that lets the administrator keep track of available questions in the system efficiently.
Here are the certain question parameters that can be used to sort the questions available in online examination system-
