ConTest is a software-based solution to facilitate the processing of paper-based exams using answer sheets. It is a replacement for Sonate.

The instructor is responsible for printing the answer sheets in the correct way. When incorrect or modified answer sheets are used, ConTest will not recognize the sheets. Go to the correct versions of, and important information about ConTest Answer Sheets.

Yes, the results of your test will be uploaded to ConTest, where you will be able to view and analyse them. E-mail to receive a ConTest account and add the following information:

  • Programme / Opleiding
  • Course code / Vakcode
  • Title course / Titel vak
  • Name instructor / Naam docent

You can then create your new tests in ConTest yourself.
