CPAA chooses the Cirrus Platform for their Digital Assessments
Cirrus Assessment has today announced that, after detailed analysis of the market, the Certified Public Accountants Association (CPAA) has chosen to use the Cirrus Platform for the authoring and delivery of their digital assessments. The team at CPAA carried out extensive research before deciding that the Cirrus Platform gave them the ideal solution to meet their assessment needs.
Jeremy Carter, CSO Cirrus Assessment
“We are delighted that CPAA has chosen the Cirrus Platform for the delivery of its e-Assessments. CPAA is a greatly respected and established organisation and, as such, carefully investigated the e-Assessment options available to them. We are extremely proud to have been chosen as their ideal solution. We know that they will be benefiting from the most up to date and easy to use system on the market and we are really looking forward to working with them.”
Lee Haywood, Education and Training Officer CPAA
“As an organisation we have never offered qualifications or exams before, so it was important to us to use the latest technology to deliver our assessments from launch. We wanted an exam delivery system which minimised the administrative work involved in delivering qualifications and which increased the security of the assessments. The Cirrus Platform stood out from the crowd in every aspect of our requirements.
The Cirrus platform also offers greater scalability in comparison to other platforms. We can’t yet accurately predict the number of students who will be taking our assessments, so scalability was extremely important to us. In addition to scalability, the Cirrus platform, being cloud based, allows for a tremendous amount of flexibility in the method chosen to deliver the assessments. It allows us to work from anywhere, whilst also being extremely secure. By using the Cirrus Platform, we hope to deliver our first assessments in a highly secure and efficient way which delivers an excellent experience to our students.”
The Certified Public Accountants Association (CPAA) represents public accountants in the UK and beyond. Our aim as a professional body is to support, train and regulate accountants in public practice, helping our members to deliver quality service and grow their firms.
