The Chartered Banker Institute are the largest professional membership body of bankers in the UK with over 25,000 members.
In 2001 the Chartered Banker Institute approached eCom to modernise the examination process for their professional qualifications. There was a need for a reliable and secure online assessment solution which could provide real-time feedback to examiners, as well as comprehensive reports for the Chartered Banker Institute staff.
A bespoke examination system was designed and built using eCom’s eNetAssess assessment platform. The system supports a range of examination formats including essays, case studies and multiple-choice questions. Some are marked automatically by the system and others by markers in the system using an annotation tool. From November 2015 an API has enabled automatic scheduling of exams.
The online scheduling, and system enabled delivery, marking and verification of exams has resulted in significant reduction in management time and overheads and delivered substantial cost savings.
