Learning is an investment. Instead of losing these investments, an online learning platform, SFJules, is aiming to create a viable platform for teacher and student collaboration.
An Online Learning Platform Which Aim Is To Develop Computerized System For Students
In a time when we are constantly hearing about being more efficient and more effective, the online education space is becoming increasingly important. In a new paper, Quester (pronounced “wave”) has published a paper on how software, by integrating with learning results, can become a valuable resource that can help with taking a standardized knowledge test. This is similar to what Amazon has done with “on demand” tutoring and optimizing teachers’ time for course preparation and other content needs.

Quester, which is based in San Jose, California, currently has a site with 130,000 registered users who are signed up to take multiple-choice tests of academics such as the National History exam and the UPS task application. The test-taking website allows students to choose what type of college they want to attend, the type of field they want to work in and the employment market to find.
When signing up for the website, users will get an application form where they will answer questions about their education and their personal interests. Through this app, the student will then fill out a series of questionnaires regarding their interests, college preferences and answers to a wide range of assessment questions. After submitting the assessment, they will then be assigned a score for each choice.
According to founder and CEO of Quester Javette Veen, the organization is dedicated to using automated assessments to augment the knowledge already being put forward by students. In the past, successful programmers and entrepreneurs often used to be made as an example. Quester wants to take advantage of the fact that they can help students in the same way.
As of September 2019, Quester’s platform is considered successful in terms of increasing test participation rate. According to Veen, the company is sharing the results of their past test-taking with each other so that they can find out how the student demographics could be better placed to take and/or improve the education process.
“My parents met through an online testing preparation center. They get married and have a son and daughter. They want their children to do well in school so they went for the open enrolment system to teach them. My mom just wanted better education. When we studied and took the tests, the [online testing centers] were trying to satisfy a market that has very little knowledge about how the assessment works or what to expect. The Quester platform is designed to answer questions that are set by a skilled career developer. Teachers know how to create success stories for students. They know how the machines process numbers. The machine just brings the knowledge for the students. We take advantage of online testing to enrich students’ test results. We teach teachers how to direct the students to take the correct questions to ensure they do well in exams. The smart machine assigns students to several intervention segments that include engaging activities like role playing games, exercises and group activities. At the end of each session, the teacher evaluates how the students did compared to past test-taking habits. An intervention process means short positive assessment tasks designed for students to be more resilient and focused on increasing engagement and performance. We give career options to students. They can develop to be employed in certain fields such as electrical engineering, computer science and finance. The Quester platform is built to help students follow through with their studies, while also helping teachers look for different career paths that their students can follow”
