The Exam Bank takes pressure off lecturers when it's time to form exams
Since abundant questions for each course and objective are already available, the school or lecturers does not have to be under pressure when the time to form exams comes.
Secondary, lecturers won’t have to trouble themselves with formatting each exam paper as the formatting is handled by the system.
2. Syllabus/Course outline Coverage:
Sometimes lecturers may not cover the whole syllabus of a course. Hence when forming exam questions they tend to be selective on which questions to ask, leaving out the objectives which weren’t covered in class. With the Exam Bank, however, lecturers will be compelled to cover the whole syllabus, knowing that it will be easy for exam reviewers to see which objectives have been covered and the number of questions that have been administered for each objective.
3. Enforcing high examination standards:
The school will institute a certain period during which lecturers should formulate a specified number of questions for each of their course(s). This period will, ideally, be on holidays or anytime when lecturers are not very busy with classes. This will help lecturers to fully concentrate on the exercise of forming the questions, thereby ensuring that the questions formulated are precise, tied to course objectives, and of high standards.
4. Possibility to tell students what to expect:
In some schools in countries such as Russia, students are told at the beginning of the semester all the questions which they should expect in an exam for each course. If a course has 360 questions, for example, all of these are given to students to practice. During an exam, only a limited number o f questions e.g. 50 (out of the 360) are administered. This helps students to be more focused during their studies.
