Tampa, FL, June 11, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Link-Systems International, Inc. (LSI) announced today that WorldWideTestbank v4.3 -- the market-leading platform for the creation, organization, delivery and grading of online placement, assessment and homework content -- is available to the public.
"Our ongoing relationships with educational institutions and publishing companies guided the development of the features included in the new release," said Vincent Forese, President of LSI. "We understand student retention and persistence is a moving target, so we work closely with all parties vested in these interests to keep our offerings competitive. We encourage everyone to visit www.worldwidetestbank.com to review sample questions created by our subject matter experts and share feedback with us."
The WorldWideTestbank is a mature, market-leading and powerful platform for the creation, organization, delivery and grading of online placement, assessment and homework content. The system consists of four components: The LSI Metadata Manager, which allows meaningful metadata to be attached to both imported and native content; Bernoulli - the algorithmic engine which allows the creation, editing, and import of free-response and multiple choice content; The LSI Workflow Editor, which allows publishers and institutions to create "canned" assignments, as well as allowing faculty end users to create customized assignments; and The WorldWideTestbank Viewer, which displays templates to the student user. The WorldWideTestbank parser and answer tolerance dashboard automatically grades responses and makes data available to a variety of grade books.
Some recent new features include, but are not limited to:
Author-specific customizable feedback for all answer types, including their open response answer-palette, drawing utilities, numeric response, multiple-choice, and multiple-select answer types.
Addition of co-dependent boxes. If a question requires multiple answers, the student may enter the correct answers in any order to receive credit.
Instructor-controlled point deduction. Instructors may "ding" students for using any of the help features, such as their Guided Solution, or using more than one attempt to correctly answer the question.
Creation of question pools. Instructors may build pools of questions. The system will randomly select questions from this pool to display to the student upon opening the assignment.
Short Answer/Essay type questions. Students may submit a short paragraph or a complete essay to be graded by the instructor.
