The UK’s leading examination and assessment data capture specialist, DRS, has announced that it will be hosting its second conference specifically aimed at exploring the critical areas in the examinations industry.
The conference will provide examination professionals with the opportunity to discuss, share and examine best practice in harnessing new technology as well as exploring the vision and blueprint for exam management in the UK. Speakers who are experts in their fields from QCA, AQA, NCFE and DRS will be sharing their expertise, knowledge and experiences in the management of examinations.
The delivery of UK examinations, assessments and professional qualifications has been under some scrutiny in recent years. As the current examination system reaches capacity, Qualification and Awarding Bodies are under increasing pressure to maintain high standards of consistency and integrity. But, just how are these organisations approaching changes in policy, how are they prioritising change and how are they reacting to modernisation strategies?
DRS works in partnership with a number of worldwide Qualification and Awarding Bodies to provide efficient and effective solutions in the automation, streamlining and management of the examination and assessment process, so fully appreciates and understands the issues faced when introducing technology into the process. From exam design and production to using the latest technology to electronically display mark schemes and enable the on-line capture of marks and results, delegates will be able to see in practice the sophisticated technology and solutions available to dramatically speed up, improve the accuracy and reduce the time and administrative burden associated with examination marking.
With over three decades experience in working with the national and worldwide examination and assessment market, DRS examination processing solutions are increasing the efficiency throughout examination bodies and professional institutions, universities, schools and national and international testing programmes.
