ACCA awards computer-based test contract to Pearson VUE

ACCA's fundamental skills' tests via computer to be managed by Pearson VUE

A NEW DEAL to provide advanced computer-based testing has been awarded by the ACCA to Pearson VUE.

The contract sees computer-based testing provision for ACCA’s ‘fundamental skills’ exams (F5 to F9), with the institute using Pearson VUE’s ExamDeveloper software to write new content. Advanced questions will also be available through the system, with human marking.

Helen Brand, chief executive of ACCA, said: “ACCA first introduced CBT for the Fundamental Knowledge exams in 1998 and this agreement with Pearson VUE represents the next stage in ACCA’s transition, ensuring the ACCA qualification remains relevant to today’s business environment.”

Pearson VUE’s service for ACCA’s exam programme includes test development tools, a registration and scheduling platform, test centre management tools and a full reporting facility.

F5-F9 exams will be available during scheduled windows in March, June, September and December.
