It is extremely taxing for teachers and professors to set question papers for every test. They must ensure that there is a balance between easy and difficult questions, and they must see to it that the questions are not repeated from previous test papers. As you have to keep so many things in mind, there are chances of making errors. Here is where the Addmen question bank software can be of help.
The question bank software comes as the third module of the Addmen OMR software, i.e., the question paper generator software. This software helps you to create question papers within minutes. However, before you can do this, you need to have questions in the software's database. This you can do easily by creating question sets even before you buy the software.
You can create sets of question papers by using Microsoft Word or Excel. Here you need to create a table of 7-8 columns. The first column should be dedicated to the question. The next four to five columns have to be used for answer options and the last column is where you type the correct answer.
The same can be done for subjective questions, although these would not have answer options or correct options.
The questions can be in the form of images, mathematical equations, diagrams, charts, etc. too.
Once you get the software, these Word files can be transferred and saved into the software.
After this, you can index and tag the questions into separate categories; as per subject, topic, chapter, difficulty level, etc. You can also allocate marks or value to each of the questions.
As the questions along with the categories are already saved in the Word file, all you have to do is choose the layout of the question paper.
You only need to tell your test requirements and the software would sort through the question bank and create a question paper accordingly.
The question bank software is a boon for those who have to create question papers on a regular basis. You no longer need to type the questions every time you need to set a question paper. The software does the work for you. The question bank software will definitely save lot of your precious time.
