The Qedoc learning software helps with a number of different parts of the exam revision process.
Any test preparation or exam revision guide will tell you that one of the most important ways to learn is to write
down what you need to learn yourself into notes, and then constantly rearrange, summarise and rewrite them.
This is a corollary of the wisdom known well to all teachers: that the best way to learn
something is to teach it.
By using the Qedoc Quiz Maker to create an electronic revision programme for yourself, you are by
no means "losing" the time it takes to type everything in. On the contrary, the process of
composing learning material will in itself actually help you learn. In addition, turning your
revision material into questions and tests will help you think like an examiner - and that
is another very important step towards exam success.
Variety is another key to a good revision programme. As many different methods must be employed
as possible. The Qedoc learning software provides an unusually rich variety of question types
(currently around 40 and rising). The test randomisation routines provide another source of variety.
It is critical to be able to see progress during your revision, otherwise it can seem daunting
and never-ending. If you have "computerised" part of your revision programme with the Qedoc learning
software, the Qedoc Quiz Player will keep long-term track of your performance. Divide up your revision
questions into sections (or levels), and the Player will track each level separately, noting how
your accuracy increases and how many times you have done each section, as well as the revision time
actually spent on each section.
In future versions of the Qedoc learning software we will be implementing a further tracking
system for strong and weak questions. It will be possible to create tests which adjust to emphasise
your weak points as you progress, rather than giving you known material again and again.
At the end of the day, most real exams are timed. Timing is a crucial part of taking exams which many
students neglect to practice. Timing doesn't just mean finishing by the end. It means pacing yourself
as you go, alotting smaller time sections to individual parts of the exam, and being rigidly strict
with the schedule so that you don't run out of time at the end.
The Qedoc learning software helps with timing as well, because you can optionally add timers to your
testing material. Depending on the type of exam you are facing, you could even create a mock exam
using our software. In the earlier part of your revision you can leave out the timers. Adding
a timer to your existing question sets at a later stage is easy and quick, and you can constantly
adjust the timer or take it away again.
The Qedoc learning software is available to you at a price strategically calculated by our most experienced marketing experts to suit the typical student budget: zero. Zero, that is, provided you share your learning materials with us and the world.
