Using PrairieTest in your course

PrairieTest can facilitate the logistics of offering computer-based exams in two formats:

  • in-person:
    • using either a computer lab with available computers
    • any classroom where students bring their own laptops
  • online:
    • with Zoom proctoring
    • without proctoring

The exams can be scheduled following:

  • a synchronous format: all students take the exam at the same time (for example, during lecture time)
  • an asynchronous format: students will be taking the exam over a period of time

Instructors have the option to:

  • pre-assign students to designated time slots
  • allow students to select their time slots
