Reimagine Education 2016

The global Reimagine Education competition attracted 807 submissions from 56 countries. 527 entries were accepted and 140 shortlisted. The international panel of judges consisted of 40 experts who evaluated the projects based on three main criteria: innovation, impact, depth or scalability.

One of the judges, Nuzio Quacquarelli (CEO, QS Quacquarelli Symonds) said: “In praising the originality, initiative, and effectiveness of our applicant cohort – these three qualities were to be found in abundance – I speak on behalf of all of our judges.”

Digital Assess won Bronze in the category ‘Learning Assessment’, for its revolutionary tool ACJ – is a unique web-enabled approach to student coursework assessment, applying the Law of Comparative Judgement. Developed in conjunction with Goldsmiths College, University of London as part of the e-Scape research project, which focused on GCSE-Level Design & Technology, it replaces formal test marking with the collective professional judgments of assessors.

The Awards served the conclusion to the 2016 Reimagine Education Conference, organized by The Wharton School – SEI Center at the University of Philadelphia, and QS Quacquarelli Symonds, compiler of the QS World University Rankings.
