ExamDeveloper collaboration platform

Completing your exam development cycle on one platform

Our testing services team uses ExamDeveloper™ to collaborate with subject matter experts on content writing, and then to manage content throughout the exam development cycle. It can also be used as a stand-alone tool if you already have in-house content writing experts.

ExamDeveloper integrates much of the functionality for test development all within a suite of highly-secure web-based tools. The system allows remote collaboration, reducing the development costs of your examination. It is also configurable, to maximize cost savings while increasing productivity and exam integrity.
