ASC Partners with CCD on Edtech in the UAE


Assessment Systems Corporation (ASC) announced today that it has signed a partnership agreement with Corporate Consultancy & Development (CCD) as an authorized representative in the United Arab Emirates.  CCD and ASC will work together to advance the field of EdTech in the UAE.

Corporate Consultancy & Development is one of the leading providers of consultancy and software services in the UAE, including government clients.  It has an excellent track record of successful projects and customer service in the region.  ASC is partnering with them to distribute our landmark platforms for psychometrics and online testing, helping to improve human assessment – and therefore diverse fields such as Education and Human Capital – throughout the Persian Gulf.

There has been a substantial investment on EdTech in the UAE over the past decade, which will only continue.  The UAE Ministry of Education seeks to be one of the leading providers of education in the entire world, and the shift to distance learning, distance assessment, and other technology-focused aspects is an important part of that. The combination of ASC’s assessment software and CCD’s local knowledge and service provides a compelling solution for educational organizations.

ASC’s software platforms provide much more than a simple assessment system; they include modern AI and machine learning technology, including computerized adaptive testing, item response theory, psychometric forensics, automated test assembly, and remote proctoring.
