TOETS is a comprehensive and flexible computer assisted assessment system that delivers an item bank, an item editor, an test editor, a management tool and of course a student assessment tool. All these tools are internet based and are using the TCP-IP protocol to connect to a database on a TOETS-server. The re-use of items and complete assessments within new items or assessments and cooperation between instructors on items and assessments are very important characteristics of this software. Central issues during the development were also the ease of use, an intuitive graphical interface and flexibility. All kinds of multimedia (sound, pictures, video, animations) can be integrated in the items and in the feedback.
