Training for schools in the UAE

Getting started with Testwise for schools in the UAE

28th September & 6th October 2021

This webinar is designed to support new schools in the UAE who have not previously used Testwise. Testwise is a digital assessment platform used to assess students with some of our core assessments including CAT4, the PT Series, NGRT or PASS.

If you are new to Testwise, we recommend attending this webinar in order to familiarise yourself with the key functions of the platform before you start any testing.

By the end of this session you will be able to confidently do the following: 

  • Add users within the school
  • Add students to the platform
  • Upload student data into the csv file (Emirate specific)
  • Create test sittings
  • Download reports

The sessions will run on alternating days and the schedule is as follows:

  • 28 September 2021 - 9:00 BST
  • 06 October 2021 - 9:00 BST

This session will run for 45 minutes. Please note: You only need to attend one session, as every webinar will repeat the same material.
