(NU/1647) Supply of a Digital Exam System
48000000-8 – Software package and information systems
Newcastle University is looking for a digital exam system to support the provision of authentic summative assessments in a secure digital environment. Newcastle University has in the region of 28,000 students and 5,500 staff, who may use the digital assessment system. Prior to the global pandemic the University’s centrally supported digital exams service delivered 140 on campus digital exams each academic year, equating to 20,000 student sittings. The largest cohort sitting an individual exam exceeds 400 students. On campus digital exam provision is expected to return to a similar level from 2021/22 academic year, should the public health situation allow. Demand for on campus digital exams exceeds the scale of existing provision, and increasing both capability and capacity is a strategic priority. The University’s ambition is to expand the scale of on campus digital exam provision using a combination of delivery on university owned PCs and student’s own devices, alongside diversifying the types of online assessment that can be delivered in a secure exam setting. The scope of this tender is for the supply and support of a digital exam system to be used by all members of the University, including those located in our Branch Campuses in Malaysia and Singapore. Digital exams will take place on campus. Please note that tenders are only invited from bidders who have an existing off the shelf solution, deployed in an educational institutions of comparable size and scale (as detailed in the ITT documentation). We will not consider bespoke solutions.
