Updated tools for Computer-Based Testing

29 May 2013

On May 4th, Nestor has been updated to a new version. New tools for computer-based testing have been added, and existing tools have been updated as well. When using multiple choice questions in tests, you can use the default functionality available in Nestor. If you want to create essay questions, you can add an 'Essay Assignment' to a content area, which was developed by the RUG and contains many improvements. Grading and reviewing the assignment can be done from within Nestor, instead of having to download a separate file. Students can view their grades and feedback on the assignment in My Grades. Creating an 'Essay Assignment' has also been made easier, and several known issues have been resolved. Several computer-based tests have already been successfully administered since the Nestor update.

More information on new testing functionality in Nestor will be added here soon.
