EdTech Digest named the 2017 finalists on March 10, nominating TAO to the shortlist in the "Assessment Solution" category. Category winners will be announced at the end of March 2017.

The International e-Assessment Awards

The e-Assessment Association launched the first International e-Assessment Awards this year.

From the medical profession to the individual school, from Higher Education to the workplace, these awards present a golden opportunity to see where technological advances in e-assessment are making a real difference, discover how to overcome barriers, and learn what new research and innovation can bring.

The e-Assessment Association named OAT a finalist in the "Innovation" category on February 21, 2017. The winners in each award category will be announced at the inaugural Gala Dinner in London on March 22, 2017.
