Myprogress and Anglia Ruskin University win ‘Best Transformational Project’ award at the eAssessment AwardsMyKnowledgeMap, creators of Myprogress, has worked closely with the School to digitally transform their approach to practice-based assessment for 2,000 pre-registration student nurses and 5000 practice supervisors across the region.
MyKnowledgeMap, creators of the offline mobile assessment platform and ePortfolio, Myprogress, is proud to win the award for ‘Best Transformational Project’ with Anglia Ruskin University’s School of Nursing and Midwifery. Over the last three years, MyKnowledgeMap has worked closely with the School to digitally transform their approach to practice-based assessment for over 2,000 pre-registration student nurses and 5000 practice supervisors across the region.
With student nurses dispersed across 200 placement areas and three campuses, supporting students on placement with a paper-based assessment portfolio posed many challenges for the university. Students lacked the support they needed and Anglia Ruskin lacked insight into student progress. After a rigorous tender process, Anglia Ruskin University adopted Myprogress for practice-based assessment, and over a three-year period rolled out the technology across all three campuses.
“We’re extremely proud of the partnership we have with Anglia Ruskin University,” says Rob Arntsen, Chairman at MyKnowledgeMap. “As a company we have a strong ethos around working closely with our customers to enable positive transformation, and we’re delighted to see the far-reaching benefits Myprogress has had for the school beyond practice-based assessment.”
Since adopting Myprogress, Anglia Ruskin have transformed the student and staff experience, dramatically improved engagement and also improved student feedback and feed-forward. In this time, the university has also reduced student attrition in their nursing programmes delivered in Cambridge from just over 20% to 2.5% - a change that the project has positively contributed to.
