Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce Training (CWT): e-Assessment - a new journey

The project explored developing new assessment strategies to make use of a digital format, and deployed open-source web-based infrastructure to develop lifelong learning ideas and thoughts. This involved the creation of a communications strategy, training internal support for assessors, training assessors in effective technology based systems, and encouraging integrated working across sector subject areas to cascade best practice for continuous improvement.
