The future of testing in the crafts sector is digital!

October 2022 | Other

The introduction of digitally supported examinations in the crafts sector has already been offering many advantages in individual skilled crafts organizations for several years. The change from paper-based to digitally supported examinations is taking place gradually. In addition, the Corona pandemic has given a boost to digitization in everyday teaching and working life, and thus also in the examination system. Since November 2020, the ProNet Handwerk team has been working on how the examination process in the crafts sector can be streamlined and simplified nationwide with the help of digitally supported examinations. The goal is to establish examination software that is precisely tailored to the requirements of the crafts sector.

65 percent of German medical faculties are members in UCAN

August 2021 | Other

The UCAN network is now the largest association of medical faculties at both national and international level. The exchange of exam questions and knowledge are essential pillars of our close cooperation. We are therefore very pleased that with the accession of the Goethe University Frankfurt and the University Hospital Jena, 65% of the German medical faculties are now members of the UCAN network. This speaks to the fact that more and more faculties are using and appreciating the UCAN tools for standardizing the assessment processes within their institution. We look forward to the new collaborations and welcome our new partners to UCAN.

Touchstone Institute delivers its first virtual OSCE with tOSCE App

April 2021 | Other

We would like to draw your attention to a very interesting blog post by our Canadian partners, the Touchstone Institute. In cooperation with UCAN, the exam of the “Internationally Educated Nurses Competency Assessment Program (IENCAP)” was digitized. The written part of the exam was administered using the ProgressTest wrapper, for which UCAN implemented an interface to an external proctoring provider to ensure a secure exam. The OSCE exam took place via Zoom with a custom dashboard. The examiners performed the assessment from their locations using the tOSCE app, thus the complete test was carried out digitally without media discontinuity.

Cooperation in the project “ProNet Handwerk”

Christmas greetings 2020

December 2020 | Other

A very eventful year is coming to an end. Corona has turned many things upside down and has had a lasting impact on all areas of our private lives. Politics, business, the legal and health care systems, and education have also felt the impact of the Covid 19 pandemic. For you, it meant implementing the challenges and requirements in teaching and testing at your university as quickly as possible in order to be able to continue to provide a good education to your students.

Now it is finally time to sit back and rejoice in what we have achieved. We wish you a peaceful, reflective Christmas and a good start in a hopefully less exciting 2021!
