Mobile Testing

Initial ideas

I am currently studying an MSc in Digital Solutions at London Metropolitan University specialising in eLearning. I am employed by City & Guilds as a Product and Project Manager within the Eassessment and Pedagogy Team and I am responsible for developing new eassessment technologies. The project work represented here is my interpretation of foundation automotive NVQ study entry tests, they are designed to fit two scenarios; that of last year school (pre-course taster and orientation) transition tests and post 16 vocational formative stage subject tests throughout BTEC and NVQ style qualifications. For ease of deployment I wanted to develop contemporary functional mobile tests. Early prototypes were established from modified existing open source code and these were then developed in conjunction with a formalised relationship with the mobile learning software vendor Learnosity for Ipod and smartphone apps.

The ideas behind the MSc project have been fully supported by my tutors and my directorate at City & Guilds: without the sponsorship of John Yates Product Development Director, Dr Vikki Smith Director Assessment and Pedagogy, Fred Smith Programme Manager Eassessment and Pedagogy and Granville Edwards Eproduct Specialist Eassessment and Pedagogy, things would have been a lot trickier. Other key help from interviewees and reviewers are all referenced in the project dissertation
