TCExam

TCExam

TCExam is a free, open source FLOSS Computer-Based Assessment software system for electronic exams (also known as E-assessment, Computer-Based Testing or e-exam) that enables educators and trainers to author, schedule, deliver, and report on quizzes, tests and exams. It is web based software that runs on a number of different platforms including Linux.

Compared to the traditional Pen-and-Paper Testing (PPT), TCExam simplifies the whole process of evaluation reducing costs and improving quality and reliability of the examinations.

TCExam comes in a variety of languages and is already used all over the world by top universities, schools, private and public institutions, independent educators and research centers.
