On-screen ADIT exam focus group takes place

The CIOT is pleased to report that, as part of an ongoing programme to modernise the delivery of ADIT, an in-house technical trial of the Exam4 on-screen exam software took place successfully within the CIOT offices in London on Monday 18 March.

A number of ADIT students volunteered to take time out of their busy schedules, and completed an exam simulation using the new software. This was followed by a focus group discussion, during which a tremendous level of user feedback was received from the volunteers.

The volunteers provided a very positive review of the Exam4 software, which promises to provide greater flexibility and an improved examination experience for ADIT students around the world. At the same time, a number of useful ideas for adjustments to the software and configuration of on-screen exams were generated by the volunteers, whose valuable input will help to ensure that future on-screen ADIT examinations are conducted in a way which is of maximum convenience and accessibility to students.

We would like to offer our gratitude to the ADIT students who volunteered to take part in the event, and to wish them the best of luck (along with all other ADIT exam candidates) in their exams this June. We would also like to thank Dr Tom O'Shea MA LLM (<a href="//www.tax.org.uk/adit-international-tax/noticeboard/screen-adit-exam-focus-group-takes-place%3ETax%3C/a%3E%29%2C%20along%20with%20students%20and%20staff%20at%20Queen%20Mary%2C%20University%20of%20London%2C%20for%20their%20involvement%20in%20the%20event.%3C/p%3E%20%3Cp%3EA%20further%20on-screen%20exam%20simulation%20is%20scheduled%2C%20subject%20to%20demand%2C%20followed%20by%20live%20trials%20of%20the%20on-screen%20exam%20software%20at%20the%20following%20June%202013%20exam%20sittings%3A%3C/p%3E%20%3Cp%3E%E2%80%A2%C2%A0%3Cstrong%3EPaper%20I%C2%A0%3C/strong%3E%28Tuesday%2011%20June%29%20-%20Dublin%20sitting%3C/p%3E%20%3Cp%3E%3Cstrong%3E%E2%80%A2%20Paper%20IIA%20-%20United%20Kingdom%20Option%C2%A0%3C/strong%3E%28Wednesday%2012%20June%29%20-%20London%20sitting%3C/p%3E%20%3Cp%3E%3Cstrong%3E%E2%80%A2%20Paper%20IIIF%20-%20Transfer%20Pricing%20Option%C2%A0%3C/strong%3E%28Thursday%2013%20June%29%20-%20Bucharest%20sitting%3C/p%3E%20%3Cp%3E%C2%A0%3C/p%3E%20%3Cp%3EIf%20you%20are%20an%20ADIT%20student%20and%20would%20like%20to%20take%20part%20in%20an%20on-screen%20exam%20trial%2C%20either%20as%20an%20exam%20simulation%20or%20during%20the%20forthcoming%20June%202013%20exam%20session%2C%20please%20email%C2%A0%3Ca%20data-cke-saved-href%3D" mailto:rclarke [at] adit.org.uk"="">rclarke [at] adit.org.uk.
