IMS Global Learning Consortium have cemented their support for QTI 2.1, the cutting-edge assessment standard used by MyKnowledgeMap's ReallyManaging Assessment product (now known as Myprogress).

IMS Global Learning Consortium today announced that they would be certifying conformance to QTI 2.1, their latest standard for e-assessments. The QTI 2.1 standard sets out common ways of ensuring Question and Test Interoperability, and was adopted by MyKnowledgeMap for our ReallyManaging Assessment product.

Dave Waller, Product Manager at MyKnowledgeMap, welcomed the announcement: "This is good news for users of ReallyManaging Assessment, the most advanced QTI 2.1 authoring and delivery tool currently on the market. It shows that IMS Global Learning Consortium see QTI 2.1 as the future of assessment, and that they, like MyKnowledgeMap, are committed to building on the solid track record of IMS assessment standards to promote openness and interoperability."

As well as announcing certification for QTI 2.1, IMS will also be offering certification for APIP, a related standard for ensuring that assessments are accessible to all students, and can support learners with special needs.
