Once you have created your EchoExam account and log in for the first time, you will see your content library. From here, you can create or import content, manage your courses, review results, and more!
The library is organized into sections to make it easy for you to find exactly what you need, when you need it. See a specific type of content by clicking the option on the left side of the page. Your Library contains five types of content:
- Tests: Tests are central to everything you do in EchoExam and can be used and re-used as often as needed, with as many groups of learners as needed. Creating a test in EchoExam allows you the freedom to create a set of questions that matches your needs and the flexibility to configure the settings to accommodate your learners.
- Questions: Questions are used to build your tests. These can be created directly from EchoExam, or imported from content you already have. Every question, whether it was created in EchoExam or imported as part of a question bank, is included in this section.
- Question Banks: Question Banks are pools of questions with related content and topics. Any time you import content into EchoExam it will be added as a Question Bank. You can also use Question Banks to automatically create tests on a topic based on specific criteria that you select.
- Resources: Resources are used to enhance your questions and make them more engaging and clear for your learners. You can also use resources to reference specific items in a question without needing to describe an image or audio item. There is no limit to the number of resources you can have, and no limit to the number of questions or tests they can be used in. EchoExam also offers an extensive library of over one million royalty-free stock images that you can use with your questions.
- Metadata: Metadata allows you to tag your questions back to specific difficulty levels, topics, standards, learning objectives, and more. Use metadata categories to ensure your tests include the appropriate types of content, or to automatically create tests with specific difficulty levels or learning objectives.
Each Exam that you assign will be part of a course that you are an instructor in. With EchoExam you can create courses manually or link them to courses you have set up in your learning management system (LMS). If you aren’t seeing a course that you expect, reach out to your admin to make sure that you are an instructor on the Course.
You can view the details and exams for any course by moving your cursor or using your keyboard to tab to the course you want to open and clicking Open Course. This will take you to the Course Exams.
The Exams section of the course includes the full list of Exams for the course that have been completed, are in progress, are upcoming, or are in draft.
Whenever you assign an exam, it will be added to the My Reports section. You can use this tab to review in progress and completed exams across all of the courses you are an instructor in.
From here, you can ensure that your learners are completing assigned exams and check scores for exams that learners have submitted.
