ExamBuilder Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about ExamBuilder's features:

Chuck K.

Easy to use and GREAT support!

2020-03-03

I've been administering a program using ExamBuilder for 10 years and have found it to be a very stable platform for online testing with best in class customer service.

Pros

ExamBuilder is a pretty intuitive tool to use whether it is used "stand-alone" or integrated into other systems using their available API. Once we integrated with our web site using the API we implemented with SSO which made for even easier access for scheduling and taking exams.

Cons

We were able to accomplish everything we needed with information from existing report but it did require some external management.

I wanted to make sure that you're aware that the video training component is available. If you need help with it, or would like to learn more about how to use it, please contact us at support@exambuilder.com or use the chat feature on our website!

You can upload your videos, PDFs, audio files, and images in the Media menu item on the left navigation bar on your account. Once your media has been uploaded, you can add your videos to the exams for the students to watch before they receive questions, you can add them to your training library, and you can add one of your training files to an individual question inside your exam. Your choice!

Overall very impressed with ExamBuilder

2020-03-10

My training program spans the globe and it’s important for me to have an easy way to push out updated training and exams as quickly as policies change.

Pros

This helps me compile better stats when I run reports by region for management. The variety of statistical analysis reporting available is the best!

Cons

Even though the exam questions support multi-language content, the interface is in English.

Fantastic, Easy-to-Use Software for our Certification Program

2020-03-03

And a bit shout out to [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] in particular!

Pros

Easy to design exams, easy to administer, open REST API makes it possible to automate the scheduling for our certification exams.

Cons

Would love to see an option that would allow us to add time to in-progress tests for more than one student/test-taker at a time (i.e., bulk add time).

Perfect Solution for Certification Testing

2020-03-09

Exambuilder helped us switch from administering exams on paper and using spreadsheets for tracking to securely conducting exams online with built in results tracking and automatic scoring.

Pros

I like the ability to review statistics on individual questions which helps us ensure we have developed the exam questions correctly.

Cons

I use the reporting feature to create a topic list of areas for study focus when I student fails an exam.

Perfect for online assessment

2020-03-17

We have been using EB for years now, and implemented several assessments every year, to thousands of people.

Pros

The software offers all the options you need to allow assessment creators to make their creativity come true.

Cons

Reporting is very very weak, meaning that you can "export" data but you need to work using it.

Response from ExamBuilder


I am a little confused by your comment regarding reporting. ExamBuilder reports are the crown jewel of the application. We provide very detailed analysis of the student data and offer many different types of reports that can be filtered by demographics. If you have a question about a certain report or how to use it -- or how to read it, please don't hesitate to reach us at support@exambuilder.com. We are always happy to show off our reports an demonstrate what they can do for you, management, and for your whole organization.

2020-03-03

End-user interface and customisable elements would enhance the offering.

Pros

The UI of the admin/trainer portal

Cons

The user portal did not match the admin portal in UI. Some of the features/reports aren't as customisable as I would like.

Exambuilder use for emergency medical services continuing education

2020-03-04

Scheduling and maintaining EMS and fire continuing education for 150+ employees who are on a 24 hr on/ 48 hr off schedule was challenging to say the least.

Pros

Adding and deleting students, creating exams and scheduling them, and running reports is intuitive and straight forward.

Ease of Use

2020-03-12

And last - the most important part is - [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] - She's is the best representative you have!

Pros

The upgrades are always easy to follow and not a complete relearning experience. The reports work for our benefit and don't require extra effort.

Cons

Some how, and I am not sure how, if a person doesn't submit before the 48 hour mark, it's still connectable and active exam in the system. There should be a flag or an email sent to the instructor to inform them that the student went past their allotted time. I haven't seen this in a long time so it's probably already been addressed. So - if that's the case, I find nothing I dislike about this software.

Excellent piece of software

2020-03-06

Great tool. We use it for qualifying technicians and confirming that they have learned the information.

Pros

The ability to do data analysis enables us to fine tune our exams to promote learning. With the tools provided we can easily pinpoint poorly worded and confusing questions, determine if training was effective and track individuals who need additional training.

Cons

Our computer department maintains very tight security. We frequently need to have them create additional paths so that the images can be viewed. This makes them unhappy.

Best value and saves massive time

2020-03-03

Exambuilder has allowed us to create specific content applicable to our industry, business, and location. it has given our company the ability to communicate important information in an efficient and timely manner.

Pros

Before Exambuilder we used to shut all the machines down, collect all the employees in one room, teach the training class, hand out tests, physically score each test.

Cons

I love that Exambuilder gives you multiple different ways to create tests. There are a few test types that I have not used mostly because I haven't taken the time to understand how to create them. I have certain go- to tests that I like to use. This shows the flexibility of the system that you can create simple training and tests or more complex and detailed training and tests.

Response from ExamBuilder


Great feedback, thanks! Since the system is 100% computer-graded, spelling counts for fill-in-the-blank question responses. We allow for up to 10 correct answers from students in order to accommodate misspellings or alternative answers. Regarding exam activation: The system doesn't know when you're going to activate an exam, and many of our clients continue to add questions or make changes up until they schedule the exam for their students. So a flashing reminder wouldn't be practical. We don't allow you to schedule an exam until it's activated, though - so that's the best reminder. Good feedback on the exam properties - setting a default for exam properties might be a feature added in a future release. Regarding languages: We do not offer translation of exams, however, you can write exams in any language you wish. ExamBuilder supports all languages.

ExamBuilder Review

2020-03-10

Any time I have an issue or question, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is always quick to respond with solutions and answers.

Pros

The software is incredibly easy to use from adding new users to creating an exam.

Cons

My least favorite or the issue that seems to come up the most is editing an exam when it has been activated. This is usually to correct a typographical error prior to testing, but going through the activate vs deactivate to edit process gives me the most trouble.

Response from ExamBuilder


ExamBuilder does allow administrators/exam authors to edit text and change answer responses even after an exam has been activated. What you won't be able to do is delete a question from an active exam (or change a question type altogether once an exam has been activated.) This is so the system can preserve data integrity. The exam data would be skewed and inaccurate if exam questions were editable in those way after an exam was activated.

Something you can do: create an exam and then schedule only yourself and maybe some colleagues (SMEs) to take the exam first -- look at any anomalies -- and make your changes before you schedule your student population. I don't know if you already to that - but it might cut down on edit issues. Please feel free to contact us through the chat feature on our website to discuss further. Thank you!

Great Solution

2020-03-09

More extensive testing of personnel to upgrade the readiness of my team.

Pros

The system is completely intuitive - no learning curve at all.

Cons

The only thing I can think of is that they don’t allow for a public exam link for anonymous exams. Each test-taker needs to use their own login…but that’s not really a con since it’s actually better for me to see the names of the individuals who took the exams and who still needs to take them.

Excellent Exam Administration Product

2020-03-09

Excellent customer service. Always quickly jumping on a problem our student has brought to our attention.

Pros

Our exam takers appreciate the ease of use of this system. Our administrators are able to quickly fulfill orders and assign exams - as well as cancel, add time to exams, reset practice exams, etc.

Cons

We would like for the practice exams to reset themselves whether the users pass or fail.

The PDF max size is 20MB, that's pretty big - and usually quite adequate for anyone's purposes.

Since the system is 100% computer-graded, essay questions don't fit the model, but we have several other question types - including a fill-in-the-blank option.
