The deans have been eager, as they can see the benefits. And once the users have transitioned to digital examination, they would not go back to the old system – there is no question of that. The use of digital examinations has risen steadily.
When implementing digital exams, we experienced that we could gain higher quality with less time spend. Usually, it is the other way around. Digital exams have basically changed the way we work and have made it much easier to share the responsibilities connected with the assessment process.
The administrative staff have been praising digital examinations. Security, speed, management and access to materials are highly complimented.
Working with Inspera has been fun. The reason I say that is that we have had a great relationship. They were open to developing the system to match our needs. But also, being realistic about what could and could not be done and how long it would take.
Some students didn’t want to take the exam online simply because they were nervous. All of the students who did it online reported great satisfaction. All of the students who didn’t do it online, later said they wish they had done it. That is really interesting when you think about it.
Since 2008 Inspera has successfully delivered more than 5 million online high-stakes assessments for the Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training, making Norway a global front-runner in implementing a comprehensive national framework for evaluation and assessment.
Whenever we talk to principals, ICT staff, and special needs teachers, we got a positive response. People are satisfied.
We selected Inspera Assessment out of a number of vendors because they meet our needs and requirements. They offered a stable platform and excellent customer service. We have had an incredible experience working with them, and they have been one of the reasons we have been successful.
Since 2015 Inspera Assessment has been supporting digital examinations for the University of Gothenburg in a mainly Bring Your Own Device setup which Inspera Assessment has supported in a secure and smoothless way. The project has been met with positive uptake by all staff groups, and students are overwhelmingly satisfied.
Academic staff is satisfied with the improved efficiency of marking that was introduced by e-assessment implementation, and the administration staff is having a vital tool in handling a high volume of data in the critical time of the exam period.
