ExamView Provides Free Test Banks to Help Instructors Get More Out of Exams

If writing tests sounds about as fun as running your fingernails down a blackboard, ExamView is for you. With ExamView, you can easily assess, analyze, and track learner performance. It includes a free test bank that makes it a breeze to write exams using questions from the content providers you trust. 

ExamView also allows instructors to write and modify original items if they cannot find what they need in the test bank. You can save favorite questions, share test banks with colleagues, and administer fair practice tests as well. In short, ExamView makes both writing and taking assessments as easy as possible. 

ExamView is powered by Echo360, one of the most trusted names in e-learning. Echo360 drives superior learner outcomes through a proven e³ philosophy placing instructors, students, and administrators at the epicenter of education to deliver quantifiable results. Continue reading to learn more about how to use ExamView and its included test bank to increase your free time and make a bigger impact with your assessments.


How Can a Free Test Bank Lead to More Effective Questions?

Writing assessment questions isn’t why most teachers enter the profession, and they might not have the passion for it required to compose an effective test. Access to a free test bank allows instructors to spend more time on other aspects of the job, reducing feelings of burnout and improving your mental health. Furthermore, the best free question banks include items written by professionals with proven applications for everything from nursing to K-12 education. 

The ExamView test bank puts hundreds of thousands of items at your fingertips. You can create summative tests using the test bank entirely or include custom-made content you can create in minutes. It’s much more convenient than pulling questions out of a book and wondering if your learners are using the correct edition. 

ExamView can automatically modify test items in the test bank for you too. With dynamic content, you can generate multiple iterations of test bank questions to evaluate the same concept. Similarly, you can use the bimodal feature to toggle between multiple-choice and short-answer test bank items, immediately changing the difficulty level of any test.

You can choose from all sorts of item types when you access ExamView’s test bank, including true or false, multiple-choice, multiple-response, numeric-response, matching, completion, short-answer, and essay questions to review, re-teach, and reinforce student learning. Few other test banks empower instructors as ExamView can.

How Can I Leverage the Free ExamView Test Bank in My Classroom?

You can use the ExamView test bank to write assessments, but creative instructors will also get a lot of use out of it in their classrooms. Seamless integration with LMS solutions and other educational software allows you to automatically launch practice questions from the test bank during presentations and get instant feedback through phones or clickers. You’ll then be able to adjust your teaching accordingly, focusing more on challenging concepts while speeding through less difficult material. Interactive content like practice questions encourages learners to follow along as well.

ExamView’s test bank isn’t just for writing an end-of-unit or end-of-term summative test either. You can administer a practice test to help learners identify their specific areas of opportunity and discover strengths they never knew they had. This can guide their test preparation based on need rather than a generic, one-size-fits-all approach. It’s almost like having a personalized test prep manual for every student. 

You can use ExamView’s test bank to easily create worksheets and other assignments for students too. You can assign the same worksheets to the entire class or personalize assignments based on how learners are performing. If a student misses class, test banks make it easy to create make-up assignments so they can catch up. 

Other test banks might run out of items if you tried to use them for all of these purposes, but the ExamView test bank is versatile enough for all of an instructor’s needs and more. Many instructors wonder how they ever got by with just the items in their textbooks. 

Does the ExamView Test Bank Include Nursing Test Banks?

With ExamView’s test bank, you have access to more than 12,000 specific titles from more than 65 publishers. If you’re a nursing instructor, you can focus on content provided by top names in nursing ed such as Wolters Kluwer and Human Kinetics. Additionally, you’ll have access to NCLEX practice questions to help nursing candidates prepare for both versions of the test. 

Of course, ExamView won’t limit you to nursing test banks. You can also make use of K-12 items on topics such as biology and health as remedial material or just a general refresher. Nursing emphasizes patient interaction, so the ability to collect immediate feedback from learners will prove helpful as well. 

Continuing education is essential in nursing as new treatments and procedures become available. The ExamView test bank is frequently updated, ensuring that your learners always have access to the latest nursing information. If your learners are preparing for any type of recertification test, ExamView can help them study.

The test bank is a robust tool for nursing education but isn’t limited to any particular industry. The ExamView test bank includes items geared toward compliance, manufacturing, hospitality, higher education, and more. In addition, K-12 teachers will have access to more than 15,600 assessment items aligned to federal Common Core standards. It’s never been easier to write an effective test. 

Is ExamView More than Just a Test Bank?

ExamView is powered by Echo360 and was developed using our e³ philosophy, which is based on equity, engagement, and evidence. 

Equity means that all learners enjoy equal opportunities with ExamView — it is accessible to everyone. For example, you can generate up to 26 versions of the same test whether you’re exclusively using test bank questions or not. Likewise, a question randomizer strongly discourages cheating since “B” might be the correct response on one student’s exam and not another’s.

Engagement means that the content is interesting and draws learners in. Embedding items from the ExamView test bank into video content and conducting live polls are strong examples of promoting learner engagement. Making content available outside of the classroom can promote engagement too, and ExamView is accessible on a variety of devices. 

Evidence means that you receive the analytical data you need to determine how well learners are performing so you can make informed decisions about your instruction choices. Unlike other free test banks, ExamView provides data segmentation so you can evaluate individual learners as well as groups and classes. Furthermore, you get tracking tools to help you identify which content areas are solid and where reinforcement might be needed.

All learners deserve fair assessments, and a great test bank helps facilitate that. If you’re tired of struggling to come up with the perfect test for your learners, contact us today. We’ll walk you through a demonstration of all the features ExamView and its associated test bank have to offer. You’ll be amazed by how easy it can be to write a test!
