Certiverse Announced as International e-Assessment Award Finalist
Innovative virtual test development system short-listed for Most Innovative Use of Technology in Assessment
CHICAGO, April 25, 2022 / PR Log / – Certiverse, the first-of-its-kind online exam development and delivery platform, was announced as a shortlisted finalist for the sixth international e-Assessment Awards presented by the e-Assessment Association.
Founded in 2008 and comprising over 2,900 members worldwide, the e-Assessment Association is an international, not-for-profit membership organization representing all industry sectors with an interest in e-Assessment. The e-Assessment Awards program holds a unique and truly global position, as it encompasses all sectors of education from schools, through post-secondary and higher education, to workplace training and professional exams.
Certiverse is a finalist for Most Innovative Use of Technology in Assessment for its software platform, an intuitive online system leveraging machine learning that allows test sponsors and contributors working remotely and asynchronously to create high-quality exams using a fraction of the traditional time and cost.
Although the past two years have seen a great advance in the uptake of organizations switching to use some form of online assessment or remote test development, Certiverse was founded in 2019 with the intent to democratize certification with greater ease of access using a virtual system.
“Certiverse was proactively designed to meet the changing needs of education and the workforce that have only come into greater focus,” said Certiverse CEO/co-founder Ruben Arturo Garcia. “As a global company, we’re honored to be recognized for our work by this expert international committee.”
Professor Bob Harrison, Chair of the Judges said, “This is my second year as Chair of the judging panel and yet again it has been an enormous privilege and a tremendous source of inspiration to see how collaboration between educators, assessment bodies, technologists and commercial interests have worked together, despite the challenges of the pandemic. These awards demonstrate the capacity and capability within the world of e-assessment to use technology to improve the assessment process and make it more accessible, reliable, valid, relevant, and cost effective.”
Certiverse will make a final presentation to the e-Assessment Association on April 26 and the winner will be announced at the International e-Assessment Conference and Awards Gala Dinner in London on June 21.
