Assessment, examinations and certification

Empower offers experience and expertise in a range of assessment methodologies for students working in online or blended environments.

Technology-enhanced assessment (“e-assessment”) offers the potential to deliver summative, formative and diagnostic assessment to assess a range of learning outcomes for large student numbers. The assessment can be embedded within learning design in a way that can motivate students and help them to pace their studies.
