The first national tests were delivered over the course of 4 days, with about 1,250 students taking the exams per day and 5 schools participating.
To support the Lund Municipality education community, the ICT Coordination team consisted of 6 full-time professionals. The decision was made that only ICT team staff were given access to Inspera Assessment in order to plan and deliver the exams in the initial implementation phase. ‘The way we excluded the teachers in the beginning, until we showed them everything that is possible with Inspera Assessment, won us crucial support later on. Help from Inspera at the start, when we first rolled out the national tests, was a big success factor’, concludes Pernilla Svensson.
The initiative “teachers training the teachers” has now been implemented. In addition to that, Inspera has been running regular training workshops with the ICT Coordination team to train them to provide first-line support to schools and their individual ICT staff.
‘Whenever we talk to principals, ICT staff, and special needs teachers, we got a positive response. People are satisfied’, says Pernilla Svensson.
