Edco Exam Centre
The Educational Company of Ireland (Edco) have been one of the leading publishers of school textbooks for almost 100 years. Always a company to embrace new technology, Edco enlisted Combined Media to create an online testing facility to compliment their post-primary textbooks.
The Edco Exam Centre system built by Combined Media provides multiple choice tests to students based on information from popular Edco textbooks for junior and leaving certificate students.
There are various tests per book depending on the subject. These formats include:
- Chapter test, which is five random multiple choice questions based on a chosen chapter from the textbook.
- Global test which asks ten randomly chosen multiple choice questions based on the entire book.
- Diagram Test. Used for example in the science books where you would label different parts of the human body.
- Drag and Drop. Used for example in the business books to test knowledge of models
The tests are marked instantly, making them an ideal revision exercise.
The tests are styled in an attractive and user-friendly manner making it accessibility to students of all ages.

The website testing facility has proved very popular and Edco are continually updating books on the website to make it a more comprehensive testing facility.
