Maintaining quality assurance during transition
Many testing and test delivery organisations made an accelerated transition to remotely-proctored tests in 2020, as a result of the global Covid-19 pandemic.
But what about adapting the audit and monitoring frameworks required to quality assure these tests? In the face of rapidly-changing testing environments, one specialist team set about designing a flexible audit framework adapted to different remote-proctored test environments and which could be applied across a range of RP methodologies, giving assurance on exams integrity and security and supporting continuous improvement.
Development and lessons learned
This session shares the story of the development of this innovative and critical quality assurance tool, outlining some of the challenges faced while creating new or differently-focused audit standards and also when piloting and implementing the framework.
The session gives balanced consideration to the methodological and practical aspects of the project, presenting examples of some of the challenges, successes and lessons learned in the course of the project, as well as describing the ongoing work in the area.
