Erasmus University College selects Cirrus Assessment to meet its e-Assessment needs
Cirrus Assessment is delighted to announce that Erasmus University College, Rotterdam has selected the Cirrus e-Assessment Platform to deliver their online assessments.
Erasmus University College was looking for a replacement system that offered enhanced usability, particularly in the form of intuitive interfaces and easy navigation. In addition to this, they needed a rapid and smooth transition from their existing e-assessment system to the Cirrus Platform. Cirrus Assessment was able to quickly import their questions into the new system and the transition was fast and seamless. Erasmus University College was able to begin using the system immediately to deliver their formative assessments ahead of moving eventually to high stakes assessment use.
Tristan Kik, Erasmus University College commented, “From the very beginning, the team at Cirrus Assessment has taken our needs seriously and they have reacted quickly to accommodate our requirements. Within days, they had created an import based on the NL QTI standard so that we could import our existing question banks. Since, at the moment, we are focusing on formative testing, embedding of YouTube videos was important to us. This and other exciting software features were available to us to use immediately. We have full confidence in Cirrus Assessment and look forward to a happy partnership with them.”
Vegard Sivertsen, CEO Cirrus Assessment commented, “We are very proud to be able to serve Erasmus University College, which is an internationally recognised and highly prestigious university. We are also delighted that EUC decided to make the switch from an e-assessment system that has been on the market for almost 10 years in order to use the Cirrus Platform. EUC has quickly been able to access all the exciting features of the Cirrus Platform to use in their formative assessments and we look forward to moving on to the delivery of their high stakes assessments in the near future.”
