What's going on?Abitti.dev is a collection of open source code used in the Abitti exam system. As the documentation is in English, so is this page.
The digital Finnish Matriculation Examination is getting better and better! Recently the exams have gone through some new technical improvements (i.e. more user friendly and accessible interface, new assignment types). Thanks to them, the exam format can now be used in more simple and intuitive way.
Even more good news
The rendering code of the exams, the Exam Engine, is now available as open source for anyone willing to develop better training exams for students and teachers. By releasing the source code we encourage all interested technical developers to jump onboard and start creating new training exams that are technically coherent with the actual Matriculation Examination. Now all potential assignment types can be applied to the training stage as well.
And finally some great news
By releasing the bright and shiny source code we take the first step towards creating a community that shares an interest in developing technically better training exams. Thus we can offer better service for both teachers and students while they are preparing themselves for the big and bold Matriculation Examination.
We are extremely happy to invite you to join us! Feel free to dive into the wonders of the Exam Engine.
