ABC from Assessment21

Assess By Computer is a suite of software tools for all aspects of setting, taking, marking, invigilating and administering exams. Under our unique Human-Computer Collaborative philosophy, the computer does the routine work, leaving the human in control of the important judgements. ABC runs anywhere, any time, on any computer system. We have five years experience of diagnostic, formative, and summative assessment, including high-stakes university final examinations.

And there's a bit of natural language engineering tucked in there somewhere...
