Many awarding organisations and Ministries of Education are grappling with how to transition from paper-based marking to e-marking. Even though the use of e-marking is expanding at pace, being already used to mark the majority of school leaver exams in the UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Slovenia, there are still lots of misconceptions around it. In this article we have dispelled the most common myths surrounding e-marking.
As we strive to improve assessment processes with the use of technology, we must ensure that accessibility for all is first in line. This blog explores how the design and delivery of digital assessment can ensure all candidates have equal opportunities to demonstrate their potential.
As the needs of the modern workforce evolve, we are seeing a shift from knowledge-based learning to developing work-ready learners with practical skills. This blog explores some of the key reasons for this shift, what it could mean for the future of education, and the need to develop more authentic assessments in line with this change.
Considering making the change from paper-based marking to digital can seem like a daunting prospect. Overhauling the way your organisation marks exams requires change to your processes, examiner recruitment and training and exam sessions but change that brings benefits. So is it worth the disruption to implement e-marking and what could it mean for you and your organisation?
As AI technology rapidly advances, so does its use across industries. The release of ChatGPT has recently taken over the internet and sparked debate as to what this means for the future, and how it can be used. This blog explores the use of AI and ChatGTP from an education and assessment perspective, and whether traditional methods of assessment are fit for purpose as we move into this new era of technology. The way we think about assessment is evolving, and with AI as a key influencer in this shift, we must adapt our approaches.
With formative assessment coming to the forefront, it's imperative we adapt the way we assess to demonstrate candidates' true capabilities. By working with NCFE, a leader in vocational and technical learning, we developed a new capability within our e-marking technology offering to enable continual assessment needed in T Levels.
With more exams moving online, the widespread challenge of exam malpractice in assessment takes on new challenges as some traditional security measures are no longer as effective.

Working alongside clients helps us to accurately identify cases of collusion, develop the solution at scale and at pace, and evolve in line with organisational and market needs.
Assessment malpractice is an age-old challenge every qualification provider faces – and when mishandled, it can lead to major consequences for everyone involved.
