This June, we’re getting together with online invigilation leader ProctorU to deliver breakfast briefings in two UK cities.
The briefings, to be held in London on 17th June and in Edinburgh on 18th June, will focus on innovative technologies that make it possible to deliver high-stakes tests using almost any webcam and computer, anywhere in the world .
Online courses help organisations increase accessibility to their programs, but until recently, when it came time for an exam, students had to travel to a test centre. Now, if you can study remotely, it’s equally feasible to you take exams remotely, too. Using online invigilators or proctors is a practical solution for institutions and organisations worldwide — a means of providing secure testing at a distance.
The sessions – co-presented by Questionmark and ProctorU, will explain the basics of online invigilation, discuss proven strategies for alleviating the testing centre burden and explore how the “last mile” of high-stakes test delivery can meet the goals and needs of all stakeholders.
The breakfast briefings will include a complimentary breakfast at 8.45 a.m. followed by presentations and discussions until about 12:30 p.m.
These gatherings are ideal for educators, instructional designers and managers from academic institutions, businesses and other organisations.
The sessions offer an excellent way to learn about the newest online assessment technologies and services. They’re also a great opportunity to meet other assessment professionals in your area.
If you’re new to online assessment or online invigilation, this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss!
