Cambridge International has worked with Inspera Assessment to produce a set of on-screen progression tests. After a successful two-year pilot, Cambridge Lower Secondary Progression On-screen Tests in English, maths and science are now available to schools as an alternative to paper tests.
At Inspera, we have a successful track record of implementing large-scale digitisation processes. Our work with Cambridge International demonstrates this.
Cambridge International provides world-class qualifications and education programmes to nearly a million students in more than 160 countries. It gives students across the world the skills they need for life, so they can achieve at school, university and work.
As part of its broader digital assessment strategy, Cambridge International approached Inspera for support in the development of its tests. The organisation wanted to make several of its classroom-based diagnostic assessments available on an on-screen platform to sit alongside the existing paper versions.

The tests were launched in April 2018, using Inspera’s ability to integrate components along the user’s journey. Cambridge International’s planning and registration module hands over to Inspera for test delivery and auto-marking, and this instantly hands data back to Cambridge International for reporting and analysis.
To overcome some of the challenges Cambridge International faced with STEM subjects, we introduced a major enhancement to our platform: full integration of the widely used GeoGebra tool. This will benefit all of Inspera’s customers. Using the GeoGebra integration, they are now better able to create stimulus and interaction types that are particularly suitable for STEM-related assessments.
