In April 2021, PWGSC began implementing Inspera Assessment. At the start of the implementation phase, the team took part in Inspera training sessions to learn about different parts of the platform, as well as experimenting with its various functionalities before going live.
In September 2021, PWGSC started delivering assessments using Inspera's platform. Within the team, one person oversees authoring, two are in charge of planning and up to 15 people may be called upon to grade assessments. Maria Dumitrescu, Regional Director, then managed quality control of authoring and grading.
The format of the exams varies but usually comprise a question per topic for which the candidate needs to give their response to a scenario. Usually, the questions are text-based and don’t include images or diagrams.
