LanSchool's iPad app has been out for a tick, but the latest update adds an extra that should please both teachers and pupils alike. It's a testing feature that enables professors to send tests of up to 100 questions to students who are running the LanSchool iPad Student application; from there, the test results can be shot back and displayed in real time on the teacher's console and come back graded with the ability to export or print the results. Those in charge can establish true / false, multiple choice or short answer questions, and graphics have a green light as well. Tests have to be built out using a Mac or PC, but after that, they can then be sent to iPads, computers or thin clients. You can hit the source link to download the program for free, but you'll need a current classroom license for LanSchool to get anything accomplished. Whatd'ya -- A for effort?

Update: We've been informed that in its current iteration, LanSchool can only send out one test to one iPad at a time. Bummer! Hopefully that'll be worked out in an update.

LanSchool Launches New Testing Feature for iPads

Company delivers the ability for teachers to administer test via iPad and receive graded results back to their LanSchool Consoles in real time


OREM, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LanSchool Technologies, the leading provider of cross-platform classroom management software, today announced the availability of a new version of its popular LanSchool iPad application with the addition of a powerful testing feature. The testing feature allows teachers to send tests of up to 100 questions to students who are running the LanSchool iPad Student application. The test results are displayed in real time on the teacher's console and come back graded with the ability to export or print the results.

"Assessment is such an integral part of the education process, and iPads are such a powerful learning tool, it seemed only logical that we would add testing capability to the equation."

"LanSchool focuses entirely on the needs of teachers and how to empower them to be successful in changing students' lives," said Dana Doggett, President and Founder of LanSchool. "Assessment is such an integral part of the education process, and iPads are such a powerful learning tool, it seemed only logical that we would add testing capability to the equation."

The test questions can be true/false, multiple choice or short answer and can also include graphics. Teachers can create the tests quickly and easily using LanSchool Test Builder on a Mac or a PC. They can then be sent to iPads, Macs, PCs or thin clients.

The LanSchool iPad application initially shipped with a breakthrough voting feature allowing teachers and students to use iPads as a classroom response system. The additional testing capability will now allow the iPad to become an integral part of the education environment. The free downloadable iPad application does require a current classroom license for LanSchool.
