Teachers can set their own exams using the Trelson (previously ChromEx) platform for their students to access on a Chromebook.
There are some great benefits to using Trelson:
- You can set it up yourself to be run in your lesson, no need to ask MIS to set anything up
- Chromebooks are ‘locked’ so students can’t access the internet
- Students can log in with their normal details so no need to remember an extra login
- At the end of the exam, the work is instantly saved into the Google Drive of the teacher who set up the exam
Setting up an exam
Teachers can just head to this link and log in with their college Google account to get started – https://assessment.trelson.com/#/exams
Full instructions on Trelson can also be found in this presentation.
Note – The video below hasn’t been updated since Trelson was rebranded from ChromEx but the method remains the same. Just the colours and branding may differ.
How does a student take the exam?
A student just needs to select ChromEx in the bottom left of the Chromebook BEFORE logging in.
Then when they are asked to log in to the ChromEx platform, the just need to use their normal college Google credentials.
