What is our vision for the “New Candidate Dashboard”?

The new dashboard is a unified house for not only summative exams but also formative assessments. It is being designed with the following aspirations:

  • Accelerated Learning: It drives the focus back to learning with the bespoke user experience for our formative capabilities Assessment Paths and Multiple Attempts.
    • Multiple Attempts allow users to practice and learn at their own pace, receiving instant feedback. This is proven to drive skill development and academic performance. 
    • Assessment Paths allows continuous learning, with a series of assessments that evaluate users’ progress and guide their learning journey over time. It's a dynamic way for educators to enhance learning, provide tailored feedback, and allow flexibility in assessment types. 
  • Inclusivity: Designed for AAA/AA compliance, featuring enhanced navigation, landmarks, and heading hierarchy for assistive technologies. Includes comprehensive page titles and descriptive alt-text labels to improve user accessibility.
  • Usability: Intuitive design based on customer feedback and usability studies, featuring a refreshed global menu, quick onboarding tour, and default ordering to highlight tests requiring immediate attention at the top.
