Eraslan College | Case Study

Eraslan College is an educational institution located in İzmir, Turkey. Eraslan is a leading institution in the education sector in Turkey with 25 years of expertise for different levels. It offers a highly-qualified education from kindergarten level to high-school level students. Besides, they give particular importance to protecting the high quality of education. Therefore, the college conducts entrance and scholarship examinations for selecting the most talented students for each level.

Objectives

After the emergence of the Covid-19 crisis, Eraslan College had a break from face-to-face courses for each level and began to offer online courses. Their modern approach and experiences in education led to a rapid transition to online courses. However, the college needed to start a strategic collaboration for online student assessment. Because of this need, Test Invite ensured the student assessment software to Eraslan College and facilitated a secure, and easy-to-use assessment environment for both students and teachers.

In this conceptual framework, the most critical issue for Eraslan College during the Covid-19 situation was online exam security for periodic exams in planned semesters. In addition, detailed exam reports were also important for a fair assessment of students' learning outcomes.

Solutions

At the beginning of the collaboration, Eraslan College used Test Invite Assessment Software for periodic exams during the 2020/2021 education year. Approximately 400 students from fifth grade to tenth grade participated in the online exams in 9 months. However, after this successful process, the college conducted their entrance exams with Test Invite. Approximately 350 students applied for the scholarship and joined the Online Entrance Exams. Thus, the expected hitches because of the pandemic were minimized with the online exams and the high-level attention of students to the learning process could be protected during the online learning.

Our Approach about Orientations of Teachers and Students

Before the assessment processes, Test Invite Assessment and Customer Support Team conducted an in-depth training process for teachers at Eraslan College. This process contained orientation about online assessment with teachers, training about Test Invite Assessment Software usage, and briefing about the test security protocol in Test Invite. Besides, our team created some trial simulations for both teachers and students. In this way, the engagement of both parties to the online assessment had eased just before the process.

Besides, Test Invite Team provided live support before-during-after exams. All people were added to the organization account of the college as an organization members at the beginning of the process including students. Thus, all students can reach and become familiar with the assessment system for a semester time. Test Invite Team created demo links before the exam processes and sent these links to the teachers for testing the whole exam process. All of these orientation processes were supplied by Test Invite without any cost.

With the Test Invite team, which we had the opportunity to work with during the remote education period, we successfully measured the weekly achievement assessments of our students with realistic and reliable evaluation systems. We conducted our School Entrance Exam with which we enroll large amounts of students to our school every year, in an environment close to reality, with the remote access of our proctor teachers, with the assessment software of the Test Invite team that provide instant proctoring support.

Test Invite, thanks to features such as remote proctoring, screen recording, screen limitation in case of risk, video and audio recording, has helped us to maintain our academic honesty principle in the online exams we conduct. Throughout our collaboration process with Test Invite, they were always accessible and providing technical support for each of our exams.
