Enabling access in assessment – how do we get there? | January 24, 2023

How do we further access in assessment?

How do we make assessments flexible and accessible?

Assessment is a key part of the student onboarding process, but for many it’s a lot more difficult than it first may seem. As online assessment becomes more and more commonplace, as well as online study, the necessity for making it accessible for students is becoming essential.

Inspera believes in making sure that every student has access to assessment platforms across the world – but how can we make this possible? And how can we make it as flexible as it can be?

And the cherry on the cake – how can we optimise the student experience on these platforms while we do it?

Tune in to The PIE Webinar to find out, as we discuss accessibility, flexibility, and equality in the assessment world.
