The team decided to use sprint planning to achieve the maximum performance and let a product owner to directly influence the workflow and make adjustments. As far as BeAxi:Web was relatively a short-term project, the SCRUM manager had chosen one-week sprints to minimize risks and boost the productivity of the team. The daily meetings with the customers were conducted to keep them informed about the status of the project. Such an approach had been chosen due to the specifics of the project. BeAxi:Web was a “two-fold” application, meaning that the team has to consider the experience of the students, who would pass the examinations, and University’s employees, who would manage the exams. The developers had to ensure that on both sides of the equation there would be an intuitive and reliable interface for the best user experience and maximum effectiveness.
Students obtained a convenient service for passing the exams remotely while the University’s employees a useful tool for creating and managing different types of quizzes. At first, university employee creates an exam in the Exam Manager, deciding the type of questions and their quantity. The questions may include multiple choice questions, gap questions, dropdown menu questions, or ones that require from a student to watch a video, listen to an audio recording, or look at a picture. Afterward, a student can login to the website, using his or her credentials, and pass the exam. The project is flexible and adaptable and can be implemented by other educational establishments as well. There is also an iOS version of the service, BeAxi:iOS application, which has slightly extended functionality.
