We have a fantastic online assessment software system that allows centres to deliver external assessments securely online.
We have just upgraded our online assessment system to allow for a better experience for both you and your learners.
The new system is available now and can be accessed from the link below or from the usual link above on the ‘login’ option.
If you were approved on our recent online assessment system, your username will be the same in our new system, however you will need to reset your password using the “can’t access your account” link on the main homepage. If you’ve not been approved previously, you will need to complete the online assessment registration form below.
There are also updated guides and a webinar below, to support you with using the new system.
Please contact our Customer Support team if you need any further assistance.
Saving you time...
You can have full control over scheduling and managing the assessments of learners, independently and in a secure environment, including:
- enter all learners at the click of a button
- search easily for learners using their names.
Making your life easier...
We want the assessment process to run as smoothly as possibly for you. That's why our online assessment system allows you to:
- deliver NCFE online assessments to learners on an internet-connected computer, or offline (prior download is required)
- prepare learners using practice assessments in the same format and environment as live assessments
- stop and re-start assessments for Reasonable Adjustments and emergencies
- void and re-schedule assessments due to non-attendance or change in circumstances
- request time adjustments for learners if required for approved Reasonable Adjustments
- view the calendar as a drop down selection.
