Adit Software today announces the release of Adit Testdesk, version 1.3, a testing utility that provides everything for creating, running and automatically grading tests and exams of any complexity in any sphere of knowledge.
"In our life we constantly meet with tests, starting with very simple ones and up to some extremely difficult ones that can earn us a degree. We do those tests, consider them easy or difficult, good or bad, but we usually don't think of those who create tests. Here, at Adit Software we believe testmakers deserve great praise for what they do and a professional and most effective tool to help them with it. That was the reason why we created Adit Testdesk," says Denis Sletkov, CEO of Adit Software. "In a little more than half a year since the release of Adit Testdesk's first public version we've managed to create a testing system that covers all main aspects of tests' life from creation to analysis of results. What helped us a lot was constant feedback from Adit Testdesk's thankful users. Their proposals for the program's improvement are the strongest engine of Adit Testdesk development."
Adit Testdesk's tests sphere of application is virtually unlimited. Use them to test pupils' or students' knowledge in academic subjects or to evaluate the personal skills and professional competence of a job applicant or an employee. Adit Testdesk support of scripts makes it not only possible but really easy to design tests that proceed, depending on previous answers (often used in psychology), or that have interdependent scales of test results evaluation.
A system of profiles allows use of the same pool of questions with variations in different tests. Adit Testdesk's robust library with its more than 10 question types lets users create a test of any complexity level. Combine in test true-false questions, multiple choice questions, matching questions and many more. The look of the test may be easily customized, using not only text, but also images, tables and OLE objects.
In the case of tests, security plays a very important role - to be sure the answers given reflect the knowledge and not the ability to crack the test. Taking this into consideration, Adit Testdesk allows users to encrypt test files and results using the industry-standard strong cryptographic algorithm (Blowfish). Also set several passwords for each test with different access rights (both for access and for editing). When a test is run over a network, Adit Testdesk uses a client-server (TCP/IP) technology. As a result, a client receives only necessary information and has no access to a test file.
