Janison Education Group (ASX:JAN) has signed an agreement with the NSW Department of Education and Cambridge University Press & Assessment to deliver the state’s selective education placement tests as computer-based test via Janison’s digital assessment platform.
Following a competitive tender process, the department has appointed Janison to provide a range of services to deliver computer-based testing for over 30,000 students each year for NSW’s Selective High School and Opportunity Class Placement Tests from 2025. These services include providing the placement tests, the computer-based test platform, and managing the test centres including invigilation.
“Janison is delighted to have been selected by the department to host the placement tests and support the digital transformation of testing in NSW. This 5-year agreement extends the 20-plus years relationship that Janison and the department have worked together”, said Wayne Houlden, Founder and interim Managing Director of Janison.
“This is the largest contract signed in the company’s history and demonstrates the value of Janison’s digital assessment platform for hosting high stakes assessments. The contract further bolsters Janison’s relationship with Cambridge by working with them to deliver the placement test specification design, test content development, paneling, marking, and scoring.
“The agreement is expected to generate revenue of up to $45 million over the initial 5-year term (provided all stages are approved) with an option for the department to extend for a further 5-year term. Janison expects work to commence on the new platform and services early in 2024.
