Release ConTest v3.3

ConTest version 3.3 is now available!

This new release brings ConTest up-to-date with respect to data security and offers a few very interesting new functions. One of these is the ‘Retention Service’ that allows the clean-up of ConTest eliminating test and/or participant data older than x years automatically. Another new feature is a log and search function for imported student numbers which highly benefits managing the Participant Import.

In short, ConTest v3.3 is a security update with some new features and we recommend all users to upgrade their current version. And if you are not a ConTest user but interested in the automated processing, analysis and reporting of tests, then we’d be happy to introduce ConTest in more detail to you!

Release evasys v8.2

A new version of evasys is now available for current and new users of the system! This version 8.2 holds various new and improved functions.

For starters, the features of the new HTML report have been enhanced. Filtered results (such as the results of different groups) now may be compared with eachother in the diagrams of the report.

Furthermore, the VividForms Editor (for questionnaire design) offers better navigation and a WYSIWYG display of the design template for online surveys. Also, the filter settings of a questionnaire now allow to display or hide certain answer options (so not only complete questions) depending on how a previous question has been answered. A completely new feature concerning questionnaire design is the ‘Piping’ function: the text of a given answer may be reused in the question or answer texts of a following question.

In addition, the SSO (Single Sign On) configuration has been streamlined and the integration with learning managements systems such as Canvas has been made easier.

More details and other new features are presented in the What’s New document that may be downloaded here.

Cloud Standard, Cloud Premium or evasys Suite?

evasys is available in different variants and therefore it’s necessary to determine which edition best suits the anticipated use when acquiring the software: the traditional evasys Suite or one of the two Cloud versions (Standard or Premium).

A good insight into the differences between the three editions is given by the Comparison List. This brochure is now available for download, here!

What is valid for all variants: evasys is fully scalable and suitable for educational institutions of any type and size!

Of course we’d be happy to discuss with you which evasys edition is most suitable for your organization.

Clean up evasys with the Data Retention Module

Catering organizations who have been working with evasys for a longer time and are requiring a system clean-up due to a surplus of obsolete data, we present the Data Retention Module, now available on a licensing basis.

This plug-in, developed by Consilium, enables the automated deletion of evasys elements by means of configurable retention rules. Thus, you may for instance delete ‘all courses from periods before 31/12/2017’ or ‘delete all surveys that were closed 600 or more days ago’. Furthermore, complete subunits may be removed and it’s also possible to separately clean up questionnaires and course types.

The data deletion runs in the background and may be scheduled during hours when the system is being used less intensively (e.g. at night and in the weekend).

With the Data Retention Module you keep evasys lean & mean, and it’s easier to comply with GDPR and other data regulations. You’ll find more information in the brochure and of course we would be happy to discuss with you how the Data Retention Module can best be deployed in your evasys environment.
