What we’re doing in e-Assessment

Our e-Assessment delivery is continuing to grow as a result of being awarded the government’s framework contract for the provision of computer based testing services last year. Recently we have:

• Launched a booking and payments for the Standards and Testing Agency (STA) professional skills test for prospective teachers. This UK wide test is used to make an assessment of maths and English for those people looking to enter the teaching profession. Since it launched on 1 October we have gone from taking around 35 bookings per day to more than 700. In this contract we are increasing the number of centres offering the test to 69. We’ll also be opening up offices in Madrid, Frankfurt and Paris to offer the test in those locations. We will start delivering the test from 1 December.

• Started to transition the Life in the UK test onto the government framework.

• Launched new tests for the Civil Aviation Authority and the CITB SLE tests for apprentices.
