Monarch recently launched a new online assessment tool for students. The student feedback has been overwhelming, instant and very positive – a fantastic result for all staff that worked hard on getting it ‘right’ first time around. The main student comments have been that the new tool is intuitive, easy to use and ultra efficient. Monarch spent over 12 months working on the project, initially with the focus on providing an industry leading solution for online/distance students only. However the positive feedback has meant Monarch has now integrated the technology into its workshops, so that students have access to the online assessment tool using wi-fi in the training rooms. Director of Academic Studies, Dr David Wilson commented that students love the instant feedback they receive when completing the online multiple choice question assessments.

It means that trainers and assessors in both workshops and online distance courses can spend more time teaching and helping students, rather than ticking boxes. Everyone is happy, staff included Dr Wilson said.
