Surpass Community Webinar – Simulations, TBS and large scale delivery (Surpass for Finance and Accountancy Examinations)

By 16 December 2020Archive, Other

In this special panel-based webinar, Robbie Burns (Assessment & Quality Lead at ICAS), Ioana Raileanu (Senior Assessment and Quality Specialist at ICAS) and Andy Thomas (Director, PEP Examinations – Evaluation and International Assessment at CPA Canada) join host Jim Crawford (SVP Global Business Development at Surpass) to deliver a globe-spanning discussion about the present and future of high-stakes, true-to-life examinations.

Of course, while the focus of our panel was accounting and finance, other testing organisations will no doubt benefit from the collaboration shown across the wider testing sphere.

Throughout the course of the discussion, demonstrations were given highlighting the simulation capabilities of Surpass, and an ‘elevator pitch’ demonstration of the ‘Task Based Simulation’ (TBS) feature was offered from a member of the expert Surpass team.

Highlights include:

  • Using word processing and spreadsheet simulation tools directly from the secure test driver.
  • Split-screen features for using digital source materials.
  • Lessons from 2020 – Online Proctoring and Test-Center Alternatives (including a particularly fascinating solution from CPA Canada).

As with all Surpass webinars, the live chat alongside the video window provided the Surpass Community to share their thoughts with each other and ask questions directly to the presenters.
