Genix Ventures announced today that it has been selected by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) to develop an Online Examination platform to facilitate the conduct of Fellowship Examinations by the College.
The new examination solution will be developed on a variation of the Genix Business Process Management (BPMS) platform and will be rolled out progressively during 2011.
The application, called SOAP (Secure Online Assessment Processing) will leverage the upgraded forms creation, document assembly, content management, audit and security frameworks developed for version 3.0 of the BPMS. It will provide functionality to support the end-to-end examination lifecycle – from question setting through examination conduct, marking and assessment to the generation and publication of results.
It is anticipated that the platform will be subjected to a series of trials conducted by the RACGP before being used in a Fellowship Examination in the first quarter of 2011. The project is likely to have a significant impact on the cost and the cycle time for conducting examinations.
