OUR CLIENTS TYPICALLY
ALREADY INVEST HEAVILY IN
LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT AND REALISE THERE MAY BE A BIT MORE TO
IT THAN JUST DASHING OFF A FEW MULTIPLE-
CHOICE QUESTIONS
EVERY SO OFTEN .
We wanted to be available for any organisation involved in those kinds of tests but inevitably we have had to focus on those clients who believe that assessment is important enough to invest time and effort in , not to mention some budget as well .
That rules out anyone who just wants to write a few questions and hand them out to their students . So , our clients typically already invest heavily in learning and assessment and realise there may be a bit more to it than just dashing off a few multiple-choice questions every so often . For any organisation like that , we have a range of options from paper-based testing to online computer adaptive testing and pathways for Digital Transformation that adjust to the organisation as its capacity for change evolves over time . What they all want is automation to manage the complex record keeping and workflow processes involved in assessment and then to produce better , more reliable tests that have a beneficial impact on learners and with test results you can believe in .
As a tech start-up , can you highlight some of the key challenges you ’ ve encountered ? of clients as possible . We feel we are getting that right and our engagement with different customers has proven that to be the case . However , reaching those clients and engaging with them can still be challenging and I guess , as is the case for most start-ups , building a customer base and building revenue remains an important focus for the business . But you just have to keep going and we can , and we will . And we can now see positive signs on the revenue side and great feedback from clients that tells us we ’ re doing something right !
