See how many of our features are on your checklist


A flexible system that enables questions to be categorised against your curriculum or course modules; and domains of competence, skills, or learning outcomes. These categorisations can be used when generating reports too. Exam blueprints capture the distributions of questions/stations to be used when creating exam-papers or station-sets.


Question Bank

The question bank can be accessed from anywhere by authorised users to allow questioning authoring, editing and approval. Existing question banks to be imported easily, and allow any existing fields for question selection and reporting purposes. Questions can be sorted and filtered as needed, and question performance in previous exams can be examined. Practique currently supports Single-Best-Answer, Short-Answer-Questions, and OSCE/OSPE stations. All questions and materials are version controlled to help manage amendments and historical analysis.

Exam Delivery

The exam can be pushed to the iPads from the server in a few minutes. The native-iPad app stores answers/marks locally as well as sending them to the server, allowing the exam to continue whether all the devices are online or not. Marks and exam standards can be monitored from the server in real-time.

Exam delivery


Single-Best-Answer can be marked automatically, and Practique provides innovative per-question marking for Short-Answer-Questions, which allows alternative answers to be automatically marked, then reviewed and unexpected alternatives accepted or rejected allowing hundreds of answers to be marked in a few seconds.


Standard Setting

Results are processed using Angoff, Borderline Group, or Borderline Regression standard setting with the Standard-Error-of-Measurement used to generate a  single-sided confidence interval where the level of confidence is adjustable.

Standard setting


We have incorporated several standard reports into Practique for candidate feedback, candidate history, examiner consistency, examiner history, question/station performance (classical and IRT2), and exam analysis. We are adding to the reports all the time, and are happy to add customised options. The data is also available via CSV export, or an ODBS link for use in reporting tools like SPSS, Crystal, or Excel.


Exam Papers

Sets of questions for written exams, or sets of stations for OSCE/OSPE can be generated from exam-blueprints automatically (randomly selecting questions from the question-bank to meet the requirements). This can be used with curriculum-mapping tools to select questions that are distributed according to the part of the curriculum that has been taught so far.

Exam Preparation

Workflows are provided for specifying candidates, examiners (for OSCE/OSPE), roleplayers and props (for OSCE) and the stations to be used. System automatically generates the rotations for OSCE/OSPE using the exam-blueprint, stations, candidate list, and examiner list. Changes to personnel and exam rotations can be made right up to the last minute.

Publishing Results

Feedback reports with mark breakdowns by domains-of competence and/or curriculum areas can be automatically generated using the blueprints. Graphs can be exported as PDFs and emailed on publication, or pushed into an e-portfolio.

User Management

Users can be created and edited, and assigned roles that restrict access to different parts of the workflow. The basic configuration includes Admin and Super-Admin roles.
