With the Exam manager an existing Slide page can be run in Exam mode, i.e. a Registration page is displayed with optional registration questions and password.

Cases to include can be selected manually or by random, a session time limit can be set, participants can be selected, and much more. A link to the session can be emailed to the participant. The participants can get instant feedback in the form of suggested/correct answers, and a moving average chart for numerical questions.

Submitted answers can be reviewed in a detailed results table, MC-questions charted graphically, all answers checked one-by-one, or downloaded as an auto-corrected Excel sheet.
