You can automate the process of question paper creation using AI tools like PrepAI. Combine it with ChatGPT to collect input data and automatically design assessments in a few minutes. Here’s how you can use these artificial intelligence platforms to create quality tests, quizzes, and question papers.
Artificial intelligence has become an integral part of our daily lives. From voice assistants to social media algorithms that decide which posts we like to see, AI is everywhere around us. The EdTech industry has been growing in recent times. The advent of the Covid-19 pandemic has sped up the adoption of technology in the education sector.
According to Research and Markets, currently, the EdTech global market is worth $340 million and will touch $605 million by 2027. The corporate EdTech industry is predicted to reach $44.6 billion by 2028. With schools and educators adopting new technology to make classrooms more inclusive and student-centric, it’s no surprise that augmented reality (AR) in the EdTech market is worth $5.3 billion.
In such instances, the latest internet sensation, ChatGPT, can be a great addition to the education industry. Though we know that the developers are still fine-tuning the algorithm to minimize errors, ChatGPT is already proving itself to be a worthy contender for search engines. In this blog, we’ll look at how ChatGPT can be paired with PrepAI to create a question paper on any topic. Let’s see the advantages of using two popular artificial intelligence tools in the education industry.
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is an AI model developed by OpenAI, an artificial intelligence research, and development company. The AI model has a chat format where the user asks a question, and the algorithm will respond with a relevant answer. It has been developed using reinforcement learning (RL), where the algorithm trains itself based on the feedback provided by the users. ChatGPT responds and converses with users, rejects questions that aren’t appropriate, and admits mistakes when a user points out an issue.
The AI model can handle just about any topic, from debugging a code to sharing information about rainforests or explaining how a nuclear reactor works. Since the model is still young, the tool is not 100% accurate It prompts users to give feedback and helps them make the algorithm as flawless as possible.
How to Use ChatGPT to Generate Content?
So, how does ChatGPT help students or teachers? It provides data in a conversational format. The data can be copied and used to generate question papers for tests and quizzes. You can collect a varied range of information by asking different questions.
Instead of using search engines to search for relevant links and reading pages of data to pick what you want, you can directly ask ChatGPT to gather the required information for you. The AI model does the hard work on your behalf.
Follow the below steps to use ChatGPT to collect information about a topic:
Sign Up and Get Started
Go to OpenAI.com and create a new account to log in. Those with a registered account can log in directly.
This is a one-time process. Once done, your account will look like this when you log in to ChatGPT.
After you log in, start asking questions about the topic. Check the below images to see how you can get more information by asking different types of questions for the same topic.
This little bit of information is not enough to create a test paper, so you ask for more.
What if it doesn’t provide some basic details you need? You ask again.
Suppose you notice that a vital piece of information is still missing. You specify what you are looking for.
Examples are always helpful and can be used to create interesting questions in assessments.
And, finally, something to lighten up the mood and make you laugh.
You can continue asking questions in different ways until you gather all the information you need. Copy the data by clicking on the topic title visible in the left panel.
With millions of people eager to use ChatGPT, the platform is being overloaded beyond its capacity. However, it shares interesting messages with users, asking them to be patient and try again in a while.
How to Use PrepAI to Generate Question Papers
Now that you know how to gather information using ChatGPT, it’s time to convert the data into a quality question paper. This is done using PrepAI, an NLP-based question generation solution.
PrepAI is an advanced AI-based question generator developed by DataToBiz. DataToBiz is a data science and artificial intelligence solution provider for MSMEs and large enterprises. The company has developed AI platforms like PrepAI, HireLakeAI, SensiblyAI, Virtual Try On Platform, etc.

Reasons to Use Artificial Intelligence Tools like ChatGPT and PrepAI
Artificial intelligence can help streamline learning and assessment methods in the education industry. From automating repetitive administrative tasks to creating a holistic classroom environment, AI has a varied role to play and several advantages to offer to educational institutions and learners.
Let’s find out how ChatGPT and PrepAI can be beneficial to students and educators.
Easy Access to Data
AI tools like ChatGPT make it easy to access and collect data from different locations. You can ask the tool to provide you with information that is not available to you. For example, many platforms require you to subscribe and pay to read their articles and journals.
This can be solved by using ChatGPT as it will collect the relevant data and share it with you in its own words. Similarly, you can use the built-in search engine in PrepAI to collect information for a topic instead of searching for it on your own.
Automation is one of the biggest advantages of using AI tools. While ChatGPT automates data collection for any topic, PrepAI automates the creation of a question paper. Traditionally, you have to read textbooks, notes, and websites to mark the required information and create questions from the content. This can take a few hours or days, depending on the volume of the content and the complexity of the assessment paper. However, by using artificial intelligence tools, your job is effectively minimized. The rest is handled by the machines.
