From a challenge...
Inverde wanted to automate the process of taking a theoretical and practical exam to obtain a diploma in the context of forest, green and nature management, for example a “chainsaw operator” exam.
...to a solution...
We developed a tablet app and management portal. The system pushes the daily agenda to every examiner. Next, students can do the theoretical exam on the tablet. The examination result is shown immediately based on different levels and an automatic scoring mechanism. The students that passed the theoretical exam can proceed with the practical exam, of which the score is filled in by the examiner on the tablet.
Given that internet coverage is poor in rural areas and forests, the system works completely offline, with synchronization over WiFi. For every successful exam, a diploma is automatically generated by the back-end system.
The tablet app made sure more exams can be taken within the same amount of time. But most importantly, the administrative workload has decreased tremendously. Where all filled examinations needed to be manually reviewed and translated into a score and diploma in the past, these processes now happen automatically.
