The XpressLab platform is a robust language assessment and multimedia course authoring software.
XpressLab is well suited for assessments of all types. The platform allows users to go beyond the typical constraints of text or image based stimulus content, making it easy to add audio recordings or videos directly into courseware and/or online assessments. Courses and assessments can be made from scratch or imported from an existing Word document.
Here's a look at how the platform works.
From the dashboard, an admin user can view their existing courses/assesments, create a new activity, access the Library of shared activities, import an activity and more.
Creating assessments and courses is as easy as creating a document in Word or Powerpoint. Adding a recorded audio clip and/or adding the ability for test candiates to record their responses is as easy as selecting the item from the Editing panel.
The dynamic Library allows users to share their courseware and/or assessments with users from their schoolboard or globally.
All of the sophisticated tools and activities found in XpressLab have been expertly designed to target listening comprehension and speaking skills, offering users the following benefits:
Using the platform, test candidates are able to interact with standard multiple choice, true/false, fill in the blank and essay questions. In addition, test candidates can also interact with unique response types such as recording audio as part of their answers.
Currently, XpressLab is in use in all grade 1 through 12 schools funded by the Ontario Ministry of Education. This province wide license allows teachers to use XpressLab to author course content and assess student proficiencies all within a secure web-based environment. Proficiency tests are constantly delivered to students through the XpressLab system, and teachers are able to perform their scoring of the tests through the scoring module.
While traditionally used in the education sector, Wired Solutions is actively involved in customizing the base features of XpressLab in order to meet the needs of specific initiatives of various industries including:
Wired Solutions is preparing to release a slew of new features and upgrades to the platform over the next several months. For more information on the platform, including how the system can facilitate your unique needs, contact Wired Solutions at firstname.lastname@example.org.Back to List
