Examination Management System
The Examination Management System (EMS) is specially designed to make the examination process as easy as possible. It has been used for over ten years to test the knowledge of personnel at all the major airports in The Netherlands.
With the EMS, examinations can be taken on paper, on tablets (such as an iPad) or on computers. In order to ensure that every individual examination is unique, questions on a specific topic will be randomly selected from a larger pool. In this way the possibility of cheating is eliminated.
The use of tablets permits larger groups of employees to take examinations simultaneously in a classroom-like environment, but also makes it possible for examinations to be taken during work breaks. Alternatively, employees can take their examinations at home, on their own tablet or computer.
The system keeps track of employees who have taken an examination and shows their results in management reports. Furthermore, the system highlights when future examinations are due for individual employees (for instance, in the case of refresher courses that are required every two or more years).
