BPP University started their collaboration with Inspera in 2017, via a pilot, which involved nine exams with varying student cohort sizes, from 20 to 200, across BPP University Schools. The pilot was designed to test Inspera Assessment in a wide range of conditions to evaluate the system’s capabilities in light of the university’s diverse requirements: home vs on-site; computer lab vs BYOD; auto-marked questions vs manually e-marked questions.
BPP University was the principal partner to Inspera in developing functionality for moderated marking, a marking quality-control process, widely used in the UK HE. Since then, the implementation has been expanded towards law and business exams that are manually marked, facilitated by the moderated marking functionality in Inspera Assessment, released in 2019.
BPP University have been very ambitious in their goals on e-assessment, but have also taken time to do rigorous planning and development of the implementation project, with gradual rollout milestones towards their 100% digitisation target.
