„The Inspera system definitely improved examinations carried out by me. First of all, he made the following possible:
1) digitization of materials, safe storage of exam papers and access from any place in case of any questions from students,
2) re-use of tests and reconfiguration of questions, for example by the possibility of adding questions to configured tests and building a database for subsequent years in the course of conducted subjects,
3) sharing materials with other lecturers of the same subjects and cooperation of lecturers, which is especially valuable for co-delivered subjects,
4) time savings (a lot - especially in the field of checking tests, which has shortened from 2 weeks to 3 hours).”
