Simple quizzes and complex exams, IQ tests and employee evaluations, certifications and applicant testing are all supported by Adit Testdesk with ease. Forget about using pen and paper! Latest technologies allow you to build, run and grade most types of tests completely automatically.

Easy to Use and to Learn

Adit Testdesk can be used by anyone who can type and save a document in Word, fill in an Excel spreadsheet, or make a PowerPoint presentation. The newly introduced ribbon-based user interface makes Adit Testdesk look, feel, and work much like Microsoft Office 2007, making your skills in using the latest Office suite perfectly usable with Adit Testdesk.

From Simple Quiz to Formal Certification

Thought an academic exam is the most complex test of all? Not if you are developing a test! Colleges and universities are mostly conservative in using a few traditional types of questions such as multiple choices, essay, draw-and-connect and alike. Modern certification companies, on the other hand, are much more creative in presenting their customers with life-like scenarios such as case studies, or introducing questions where the right answer would depend on a variety of criteria. Adit Testdesk makes it possible to create just about any type of a test you can imagine. Simple quizzes, surveys, academic exams, employee evaluations, applicant testing, IQ tests and certifications can all be taken care of with Adit Testdesk effortlessly.

Your Tests. Your Design

You can build any type of a test, and make it look just the way you want. Custom fonts and colors are available, while the variety of objects such as tables, images, videos and audio clips will produce just the test you want. You can make tests that are time-limited, or can put a time limit on certain questions only. You can use a variety of question types, and design your own grading algorithms from simple true-false to custom scripts.

Automate the Routine

Grading a test or exam can take hours and days in colleges and universities depending on the size of a group. Adit Testdesk takes care of the grading in just seconds, grading all the questions, calculating and presenting the results completely automatically. The few types of questions that aren’t meant to be graded by a computer such as written essays or spoken answers can be still assessed manually.

Advanced Reporting

dit Testdesk provides comprehensive reporting capabilities with analytic reports allowing you to see exactly what you need, processed, averaged, or summed up for easy summaries. If you need an extra report, custom templates are available to present your tests and your data the way you need it.

Client-Server Operation

With Adit Testdesk, you can run and grade a test without leaving a chair – no matter how big the group is! Internet or intranet-based client-server operation allows running the test on multiple workstations, while grading and evaluating the results on a centralized server.


All tests, test answers, grades, and final results are always protected against any form of unauthorized access. Adit Testdesk is tamper-proof by always encrypting test files, answers, grades and results with an industry-standard strong cryptographic algorithm (AES). There are several access levels available for every test, with each password allowing for different access rights.

Types of Questions Supported

Adit Testdesk supports a variety of question types to make tests of any complexity easily possible. The available question types are:

  • True/False: Any given statement should be either confirmed or denied.
  • Multiple choice: Only one of several choices should be selected as an answer.
  • Multiple response: Selection is made out of several choices. However, more than one choice can make an answer.
  • Matching: There are two lists of choices. For each choice in one list a match should be found from another list.
  • Sequence: A list of choices has certain logic. The logical order of the sequence should be restored.
  • Fill in the Blank: Participants are expected to type in the text of an answer. The answer is assessed by regular expressions.
  • Hotspot: Some part of an image should be chosen as an answer.
  • Grid: Several multiple choice questions are presented in a grid at the same time. Participants select one choice for each statement or question presented.
  • Essay: Participants should submit a free-range text of certain length. This type of question is graded manually.
  • Gap Fill / Cloze: Test with gaps is presented. Participants are supposed to fill the gaps with appropriate values.
  • Select and Place: A group of source and target areas is presented. Participants move source areas to appropriate target positions.
  • Drag and Connect: The question presents a group of targets and a list of connections. Participants connect the targets in a right way.
  • Adobe Flash: An Adobe Flash animation of any complexity can be used as a question. The answer is returned as a variable, and can be checked automatically.
  • Spoken Response: Another manual-grade question. Participants use a microphone to answer the question.
  • Draw Point: A point should be marked on an image or a graph that has the coordinates of an answer.
  • Draw Line: A line connecting two points should be drawn. The equation describing the line serves as an answer.
  • Draw Circle: A circle should be drawn. The coordinates of its centre and the radius serve as an answer.
  • Draw Segment: A rectangular segment should be drawn. The coordinates of the end points of the line connecting the segment's diagonal angles serve as an answer.
  • Draw Rectangle: A rectangular segment should be drawn.
