Guru Examination System

The Guru Examination System is a system exclusively aimed at third-level institutions to manage the processes associated with examination papers and external review. Principal features include:

Examination Paper Submission and Flow Control: Guru drastically reduces the administrative workload for all individuals involved with the examination paper process. Academics can submit examination papers remotely, from any location or device and receive external examiners reviews directly to their Inboxes. Local academic office staff can process papers quickly, passing them for viewing to external examiners - no more envelopes or complicated digital setups!
External Examiner Interface: Guru provides a "one-stop shop" for all external examiner activities, including examination paper review, final report submission and management of financial payment details. Having everything in one place, combined with a notification system provides a more streamlined user interface for external examiners.
Quality Enhancement: Guru enhances quality across a range of areas; by standardising and automating examination paper templates, by keeping permanent archives of external examiner reviews/reports and responses, by improving the quality of the final paper presented to students, by providing proper accessible digital archives to students with impairments and many more.
Paper Security: Guru eliminates the risk of lost courier packages and ensures that all examination papers only have the absolute minimum number of users interacting with them. Full audit trails are in place to show every user who has viewed or interacted with examination papers. Digital security is ensured through strong encryption approaches, combined with best practice models such as Two-Factor Authentication.
