Technical requirements

Image of three graduates on graduation dayMany leading colleges, specialist schools, training providers and larger employers have elected to use tests from the Sherwood Test Series as their initial assessment tools of choice. Their decision has been based on the need to reliably screen hundreds, or even thousands, of learners. Such large numbers mean that it’s unfeasible to give each learner an in-depth diagnostic test. What’s needed is a rapid screen that helps contribute to an overall picture of each learners ability and potential support needs.

Learners at all levels find the tests non-threatening with questions displayed in a friendly format. Academic staff appreciate the concise and accurately targeted reports. Technical staff value the fact the software is fully networkable and backed by an industry standard centralised database which guarantees a trouble free rollout and “no more numbers headaches!”.
