VCE Designer, also known as Visual CertExam Designer, is an application used for making practice tests. It is part of the Visual CertExam Suite, which consists of another program called the Visual CertExam Manager. The application consists of several tools for creating professional practice tests for realistic simulation. Its design is geared towards users who develop practice examinations. It consists of different exam types that are commonly used in certification testing including multiple choice, select and place, fill in the blanks, list building, and create a tree among others.
Users have the freedom to customize the appearance of the test by changing the formatting with bullet points, alignment, and numbering. The application also has a feature for previewing how the final test will look like. Once the test is created it is saved in one file, which makes it easier to send or distribute to test-takers. Additionally, existing tests can be imported to the application for editing using the Import Wizard. VCE Designer also supports two image file formats, which are GIF and JPEG.
Other features of the application are the following:
• Support for creating exams based on case studies
• Print preview and printing of exams from the application’s interface
• Support for grouping similar types of questions
