We recently published a case study on how the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) are using Questionmark to do certification testing.   It’s a great example of how online assessment management can make the statistical review process more efficient. By combining the easy-to-use authoring tools available in Questionmark Live and the statistical reporting features available in Questionmark Perception, PHECC have created a streamlined process that ensures valid and reliable items.

PHECC is the Irish EMS regulator, responsible for certifying all pre-hospital emergency care professionals including Emergency Medical Technicians, Paramedics and Advanced Paramedics. Having valid and reliable assessments is a crucial factor in this work. Volunteer organisations such as the Red Cross also use PHECC’s exams to certify staff on a voluntary basis. Since introducing Questionmark, PHECC have been able to dramatically increase the number of exams they have been able to provide, and they are now fully booked six months in advance.
