MEET THE MODERN AIG

The allure of lightning-fast item bank expansion has tantalized testing programs for years. Unfortunately, the promise of an AIG solution that’s actually easy to use has eluded us. This changes now. 

With Caveon AIG, you can harness the power of SmartItem™ technology to easily generate thousands of unique items, then export them into your existing development and delivery systems. Enhance your program’s test security, conserve valuable resources, and transform an item pool into an item ocean at the push of a button.

BANG FOR YOUR BUCK

Caveon AIG can enable your testing program to…

BEEF UP SECURITY

Lots of challenges that plague testing programs, such as the effects of cheating, testwiseness, and content theft, can be mitigated by a large enough item bank. But growth can be a challenge, too. Physical and economic limitations make it difficult to rapidly expand an item pool. Caveon AIG makes it possible to enhance your security by reducing content exposure.

MAKE GREAT PEOPLE EVEN BETTER

If you are investing in experts to write your exams, why not supply them with tools to supercharge their skills? Caveon AIG can make your best resources more effective, so you can get the most out of your most valuable people. Leaving the learning curve behind, Caveon AIG improves development efficiency while the sleek interface frees SMEs and item writers up to to create exceptional items. 

DO MORE WITH LESS

Caveon AIG is the most cost-effective way to rapidly expand your item pool. The sleek Graphical User Interface (GUI) means reduced training time. Reduced training time means more productive development. More productive development leads to longer-lasting item pools. Pull out your calculator and you may find that AIG will save your program money from start to finish.

GROW SUPER FAST

Caveon AIG harnesses the power of SmartItem technology to generate thousands of unique items. First, design your item, load it up with data to vary the item crop, then watch it transform into a thousand different fractals at the push of a button. Leverage a large item pool to build your tests and grow your program as fast as you want.

ENJOY ITEM WRITING

Don’t just be an item writer, be an item designer. This AIG’s intuitive user interface gives you the freedom to get creative with your item development process. Instead of wasting your time training your experts on how to use the tools, free them up to focus on creating exceptional items. Not only is the item-writing process easier and more effective with Caveon AIG, but it’s also pretty fun.

GET STARTED WITH ADAPTIVE TESTING

Before configuring crucial security features for test administrations, we always recommend baking security right into your test design first. Unfortunately, access to Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) and other secure test designs is really only possible with a large item bank. A large item bank has always been expensive and unattainable. If CAT hasn’t been accessible to you thus far, Caveon AIG can help you get there.

LEARN THE ROPES

We’ll provide a demo, but it’s really quite simple.

CREATE AN ITEM

The life of an AIG item begins just as any other item. You’ll use the item builder to construct your base item, keeping in mind which parts of the item should be fluid or variable. It helps to conceptualize a SmartItem by planning  your learning objective and working backward from there.

ADD SOME DATA

Once you’ve decided which parts of your item will be fluid, you’ll add data to populate those variables. Upload or manually import data to be contingent upon other elements of your item. Even add distractor data to help prevent the effects of pre-knowledge.

MAKE IT SMART

All you have to do to make an item ready for AIG is drag and drop your variables. Then you can connect the variables in whatever way you like, populating your items with distracting stem details, formulas, and more. Someone should get this item a cap and gown, because it just got smart!

EXPORT AND UPLOAD

Once you’ve made your AIG item by adding enough variables to produce a large quantity of items, simply set your number and… just like that! You’ll have a set of brand new, unique, static items that are ready to be uploaded into your existing development and delivery systems.

ALL THE FEATURES YOU WANT IN AN AIG TOOL

NO RIP AND REPLACE

Caveon AIG items will work with any development and delivery system you use. It’s easy to upload your new items into your own systems. The items are Question Test Interoperability (QTI) 2.2 compliant, meaning you can more easily transport items to other systems.

PUSH-BUTTON MAGIC

Bypass the laborious and expensive task of writing hundreds of items by hand, and simply design one great one. Caveon AIG will transform it into thousands of unique items. Save time and money and let push-button item rendering do the hard work for you.

ITEM TYPES FOR DAYS

What kinds of items do you want to generate? Your wish is Caveon AIG’s command. Build your exams by choosing from all kinds of item types, like drag-and-drop, multiple choice, matching, DOMC™, and more. Creative types, take note.

A SLICK GUI

Caveon AIG’s Graphical User Interface (GUI) is easy to use. Drag-and-drop item building and simple navigation tools make learning the tool a breeze. Take the time you would have spent training on the tool and use it to dream up new item designs!

DATA PLAYGROUNDS

Load your own data to build your perfect SmartItem. From anatomical images and glossary terms, to first names and corresponding pronouns, create as many data sources and variables as you want. Get creative!

SME-FRIENDLY TOOLS

No need to put a developer to the task of generating your items. Allow your talented item writers to easily create items on a massive scale. Coding is supported, but certainly not required.

POWERFUL FRIENDS

Caveon AIG is conveniently housed within a host of other useful exam development and delivery tools. Scorpion, Caveon’s exam development and delivery system, supports AIG, the SmartItem, DOMC, and more—all built by the only organization dedicated to test security.

PSYCHOMETRIC TRANSPARENCY

Creating a SmartItem for AIG allows you to psychometrically test your items. Review the complete batch, test them, and make your adjustments to your item design as needed. The information is in your hands.

NO SOFTWARE INSTALLATION

This secure, cloud-based app means that you can auto-generate thousands of items with no software installation required. Now your SMEs no longer need to be tech-savvy in addition to being experts in their fields. (Phew!)
