About the project

Preferred Supplier

Following a tender process, UCL has made the decision to use UNIwise as our preferred supplier. 

WISEflow is a cloud-based digital end-to-end exam and assessment platform that supports the assessment and feedback lifecycle for students, examiners and administrators.  The platform will provide easy access to create, deliver and assess multiple types of exams and assessments accompanied by tools for marking, feedback and analytics.

WISEflow covers the majority of traditional exam and assessment formats across the different subject areas at universities. 

Project timeline

Phase one, 2020/21

  • Proof of Concept (POC) January 2021 - testing the end to end process.  At the end of the POC, a go/no-go decision for the continuation of Phase 1 delivery will be made.
  • Main 2020/21 Examination Delivery - All examination papers will be created and submitted in the usual way to the examinations office for uploading onto the digital assessment platform.  All students will engage with the platform to take their examinations. 
  • Pilot running alongside Main 2020-21 delivery - the project team will be working to identify exams that will be delivered in the main examination period making use of the end to end process (not grade integration).

Phase two, 2021/22

  • Full roll out of end to end process including grade integration for centrally managed exams (including MCQ’s).
  • Pilot roll out for coursework.
  • Exploration of other assessments that can be delivered within the platform, such as orals and OSCE’s.
  • Tender process for additional assessment platforms for innovative forms of assessment.
