Automated item generation tools that are user friendly and easy-to-use

Generate Items in a User-Friendly Interface

Why manually write one item when you can build hundreds of items in one convenient model?

Popular Features:

Graphical User Interface (GUI)

With its simple navigation and drag-and-drop item building tools, Scorpion AIG’s graphical user interface (GUI) is easy for non-technical team members to use.

Asset Library

Load your own data sources to build your items. From images, videos, and glossary terms to first names and pronouns, create custom data sources and variables for your templates.

Psychometric Reviews

Psychometrically review the pool of items you created using Automated Item Generation, then test them and make adjustments to your item pool as needed.

Custom-Code Enabled

For those individuals who want to go beyond the GUI, Scorpion allows custom coding for AIG models. However, while coding is supported, it’s certainly not required.

Works Seamlessly with Your Existing Setup

Using Caveon AIG doesn’t require a rip-and-replace attitude—simply integrate your new item bank.

Item Type Support

There’s no need to overhaul your existing item and exam designs to use AIG. Scorpion’s AIG tools allow you to design your model, adjust the variables, and begin production.

Intuitive Interface

Scorpion’s AIG features are very easy for SMEs and non-technical team members to use. No need to put a developer to the task of generating your items.

AIG allows for increased efficiency on your team


Give your development team the tools to supercharge their efforts and reduce inevitable human error by using AIG to generate your new items. Save your team’s valuable time and effort for the review process.

Automated item generation saves your testing program money in the long run
