PAEA will soon launch its next-generation exam platform and welcome two new Assessment partners, BTL Surpass and Alpine Testing Solutions. The innovative platform will provide an intuitive interface that can be navigated easily and will transform the exam experience for students and faculty.
As we near the transition, the PAEA Assessment Team will share a variety of resources to guide our members through the process. This webpage is designed to offer PAEA members a center for finding answers to commonly asked questions, dates and deadlines, key to-dos, and more.
New Master License Agreement
PAEA recently completed a comprehensive risk assessment. As a result of that process, PAEA is implementing a new program-level agreement to use its assessments. That means, to access the new platform, all PAEA Assessment user programs must sign the new Master License Agreement (MLA). Please note that PAEA is not accepting any revisions or addendums.
The vast majority of member programs have already accepted the MLA by our requested deadline. PAEA is still accepting agreements and asks that you prioritize its completion. If you need to send the agreement through legal review first, you can share the PDF version available here. If you have assumed the role of Program Director after April 20, 2022, please reach out to our team at Exams@PAEAonline.org so we can redirect the agreement to you.
This spring, PAEA introduced our new Assessment partners, BTL Surpass (item banking and test delivery) and Alpine Testing Solutions (test development and psychometric services), and announced our next-generation exam platform, slated to launch this summer.
We have made the difficult decision to delay the launch of the new exam platform.
The PAEA team is dedicated to delivering superior products and service to our members. This transition is taking longer than initially anticipated; however, we believe it is important to provide sufficient time for quality assurance testing and the release of helpful education and reference materials for our exam users. We will introduce the new platform when it meets our high standards for a seamless transition and outstanding user experience.
For now, exam users will continue to schedule and administer exams through ExamDriver and all current features and capabilities will remain the same. We will keep you updated with more information as it becomes available, and we thank you for your patience and support as we look ahead to this exciting transition.
If you have any questions, please contact us at Exams@PAEAonline.org, and we will be happy to help.
