Inspera has become the leading online test, exam, proctoring, and digital assessment service provider. Offering support streamlining the entire assessment cycle. Inspera's EdTech experts assist higher education institutions, and corporate certification programs in planning, designing, delivering, and marking assessments onsite and remotely. After revolutionizing the online assessment industry across Europe over the past decade, the company is extending its delivery of high standards for educational assessment to the US higher education sector. The company's American division, led by Roe J. McFarlane, is ready to take Inspera's services to the next level.

Bjorn Rustberggaard, the CEO of Inspera, is excited about collaborating with an EdTech and industry veteran like Roe J. McFarlane, who will help elevate educational digital assessment standards in the United States while promoting student and teacher satisfaction in the process. Inspera, backed by CGE Partners is trusted by world-class educational institutions, including many prestigious institutions such as the British Council, Lund University, and UNSW Sydney. It is anticipated to have a significant impact in welcoming well-known U.S. higher education institutions following the U.S. expansion.

"Educators need to keep pace with modern technology, ensuring the educational system continues to be effective and productive. By bridging the gap between modern learning and testing, Inspera is resolving a long-standing dilemma of using technology for actual assessments rather than limiting it to just course materials in the classrooms. 70% of U.S. academics use digital content when they teach. However, students, who are digital natives, are still expected to take traditional pen-and-paper exams," stated Mr. McFarlane, outlining the limitations of the traditional examination system. He addressed how Inspera is filling this gap, "Inspera is successfully transforming the assessment experience by extending digital resources to include digital examinations. It provides solutions for pressing issues like faculty-student alignment, grading fairness, bias, and transparency. With Inspera, there is flexibility allowing faculty and students broader access to online and offline digital testing experiences, regardless of place, internet stability, or device. Inspera is now providing digital assessment services to the U.S. higher education sector to further democratize the online testing and exam process."
