Desktop-Like Interface

Looks and feels like a desktop application. Uses the latest web functionality to imitate desktop usability features like drag-and-drop and wizards.

Full-Featured Test Generator

Author and manage your assessment content as well as build tests using the only online test generator that supports all of the major functionality of its desktop competitors. Cognero is complete with a full-featured word processor, multi-language support, Math-ML compliant equation editor, algorithmic content support, native support for 15 question types (true/false, modified true/false, yes/no, multiple choice, multiple response, numeric response, completion, matching, objective short answer, subjective short answer, multi-mode, ordering, opinion scale/likert, essay, and custom), unlimited metadata, ability to print professional paper tests with multiple styles and versions, and more.

Class Management and Assignments

Manage your students, classes, and assignments with the ease of simple drag-and-drop. You can build or import rosters, have students self-register for a class, and move students easily from class to class. Once your roster is set, simply drag a test to a class to schedule and put your students to work.

Secure Online Testing

Cognero has an integrated secure online testing center for your students. Along with delivering traditional tests, your students can receive immediate feedback on each question and/or receive a detailed end of assignment report to help them know exactly how they are doing.

Complete Reporting System

What is the use of assessment without being able to disseminate the data derived from it? Cognero allows you to analyze how your students are performing on a real time basis and from multiple approaches to allow for immediate intervention. You can also quickly analyze your questions and perform a gap analysis of student testing.

Content Management System

Cognero has a unique set of tools to allow for the creation of products (groups of question sets and tests) for
distribution to other users. This system includes workflow management for the shared authoring environment, the ability to authorize specific users to access your content, and the ability to edit content and push changes through
to subscribers. There are also a number of design features to make high volume authoring within Cognero very efficient. All content created in this system has built-in digital rights management meaning that your content
is protected against unauthorized use.


For enterprise applications, we can custom-brand, re-skin, or otherwise modify Cognero to match your existing Web offerings to make a seamless solution for your customers. The applications of this are only limited by imagination.

Standards Compliant and Flexible

Cognero imports QTI 1.2 and exports QTI 1.2 and 2.1 to allow content to work with other systems. Equations are handled in a MathML compliant equation editor to further promote cross compatibility. Our XML is also available so that you can use content in Cognero with your own custom applications without the limitations of QTI.
