Digital assessment (Remindo)


Remindo allows you to perform summative and formative digital assessments. Exams are performed on Chromebooks in a secure environment. Practice tests can be performed either in a secure environment or on students’ personal devices. Remindo’s features, like more supported question types, direct feedback and analytics, will help you improve the quality of your assessments. You will also be able to work more efficiently by doing things like creating a database of questions and reusing them. The Alpha, Beta, and Gamma halls of the Educatorium will accommodate up to 650 students to be assessed on Chromebooks at any one time. Smaller-scale secure assessment locations are now also available at the faculties of Veterinary Medicine; Law, Economics and Governance; Humanities; Science; Geosciences; and Social and Behavioural Sciences.
