Serving the educational market for almost two decades, Vegard Sivertsen, CEO of Cirrus Assessment observed a constantset of challenges that teachers always faced using an e-assessment platform. The existing platforms were complex to use and lacked intuitiveness and often using old legacy technologies. “I realized how important it is to have easy to use tools at the disposal of teachers as they do not have the time to read thick manuals to figure out how things work.” With a strong determination to completely metamorphose the scenario, Sivertsen founded Cirrus Assessment to provide an easy to use e-assessment platform supporting the whole process of a digital examination from creating the exam, on-screen delivery, to marking it. The feature-rich platform strikes a delicate balance between ease of use and quality by providing intuitive interfaces and easy navigation for teachers allowing them to focus on creating better assessments.

Cirrus’ end-to-end assessment platform offers numerous modules to help teachers with creating and assessing examinations. With its item bank, teachers can create their items or questions and can also collaborate with colleagues on their item banks. The item bank is where they can create the content. Next is the assessment engine where the assessments are created once the complete library of items is ready. This advanced assessment engine allows teachers to create different types of assessments such as multiple variations of the test,where each students gets a different set of questions. These so-called test-forms are psychometrically balanced to ensure fairness. Once the assessments are ready, teachers can use Cirrus’ scheduling module to choose when to conduct the test. At the time of the examination, candidates or students use the delivery engine to log in and take the exam. After the completion of the test, results are automatically rolled out in case of an MCQ paper. On the other hand, if the answers are in essay format, teachers can access Cirrus’ flexible marking module to use sophisticated workflows and multiple markers and moderations to check accordingly.


Our focus is providing the most intuitive, yet powerful end to end e-assessment platform on the market


Finally, teachers can re-import candidate results, progress and psychometric analysis of the assessments to maintain a record.
