London, 15 November 2022

Inspera, the leading global digital assessment platform backed by CGE Partners (“CGE”), is pleased to announce it is expanding to the United States (U.S.), led by Inspera U.S. President & CEO, Roe J. McFarlane.

As colleges and universities in the U.S. increasingly deliver instruction through ‘hybrid’ learning platforms, teachers need better, more equitable ways to assess how deeply students understand the material. Inspera’s end-to-end SaaS digital examination platform provides higher education institutions with a streamlined and customizable way to design, deploy, grade, and proctor tests and exams.

“Based on my experience in the EdTech industry, I see the multi-pronged opportunity Inspera brings to U.S. higher education. We can address an ongoing pain point for higher-ed institutions: how to evolve beyond the traditional ‘pen and paper’ exam experience to use advanced digital tools to make the entire knowledge-testing process more engaging, relevant and unbiased for students, professors and the institution at large.” Roe J. McFarlane, Inspera U.S. President & CEO.

“The digital transformation of the entire examination journey, from the development of exam questions to sharing feedback on results, means better alignment between faculty and students, fairness in grading, transparency and broader access to online and offline digital testing experiences, independent of time, place and device. It’s critically important we provide faculty and administrators with a seamless, end-to-end exam solution, reducing both friction and complexity.” Michael Ioakimides, Chair of Inspera.

“The impact of Covid-19 on higher education has highlighted the crucial need to balance flexibility in teaching and learning with flexible assessment. We have been empowering schools, universities and professional associations across the globe to adopt holistic e-assessment solutions.” Bjørn Rustberggaard, Founder and Global CEO of Inspera.

Inspera currently services a strong international customer base with many prominent higher education institutions in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Scandinavia. The platform incorporates a wide variety of question types, including images, equations, audio and video and the Inspera team has continued to advance the learning analytics tools for data available in the platform.

Inspera worked with leading executive EdTech recruiters Todd Hand & Peggy Williams from Knowledge Leaders Group to place the U.S. President & CEO of Inspera.
