We are delighted to announce that our new online assessment system, ERC DOTS (Drumcondra Online Testing System), is now live and ready for schools to use. All schools should have received an email from the ERC at the end of April with unique login credentials for their own accounts. Primary and post-primary schools can purchase tests, set up test sessions, administer tests, and receive reports all from within the system. ‘How to’ videos and other resources are also available within the system.
If you are interested in administering standardised tests online, please watch this short video that shows you how to get started on using the new ERC DOTS system: https://youtu.be/2tarH5DLQTA.
You can view information about all of the ERC’s tests for schools (both paper-based and online tests) here: www.tests.erc.ie. This website also includes answers to Frequently Asked Questions about ERC DOTS and online testing. You can see a short flyer with more details about the online tests and the capabilities of ERC DOTS at https://bit.ly/3lHPDQO and (leagán Gaeilge) https://bit.ly/2OyYwA5.
