Assessment Player 2.0 is a new, more accessible interface for students. This update provides increased security, flexibility and quality in the questions and submissions. In this article you can learn more about what´s new, and maybe more importantly; what stays the same. 

The update happens over two steps and does not require you to take any actions

Regardless of your role in Inspera Assessment (candidate, planner, author, invigilator or grader) the transition to the new student interface will be straightforward. All question types, formatting and media will work the same way as it does today. All the new possibilities will be deactivated in the default setup for the new Player. In this way we make sure that the students gets as close to identical user experience, the authors can be confident their questions display correctly and the planner does not need to learn anything new at all. 

The update will affect you less than you might think

In October you are free to decide whether the tests should run in the new or old player, and can easily compare the two. Continue reading to learn more about how it will affect the different roles:
