Integrate bizExaminer into LearnDash

With our LearnDash extension you can use all of the LMS features of LearnDash and handle quizzes in bizExaminer.

  • Create LearnDash quizzes as you would normally. Set up prerequisites, associate the quiz with courses and lessons, design your certificates and use all of the LearnDash features you already use.
  • Connect a bizExaminer exam with a quiz. When the user starts the quiz, he is automatically redirected to the bizExaminer exam and after he has finished the exam he will get back to the default LearnDash results view.
  • Certificates: Use LearnDash’s built-in certificates for quizzes or use the bizExaminer certificates function which integrates perfectly into LearnDash and allows the user to view his certificate everywhere via LearnDash’s shortcodes and blocks.
  • Remote Proctoring: bizExaminer supports Examity, Constructor (Examus), ProctorExam and Proctorio for monitoring remote exams.
  • Results are directly stored in LearnDash and therefore available to show in LearnDash’s shortcodes, blocks, the user’s profile etc.
  • LearnDash templates: Our plugin uses LearnDash’s templates directly and is therefore compatible with most themes and other third-party extensions.
