In September last year, the second year of this project started. The project aims to develop an Online Adaptive Progress Test. The first year focussed on establishing an item bank with all international test items. Guidelines on item writing and reviewing has been developed and all teachers were trained at each institution. The group implemented software in order to create and review all items, and for the administration of the online test for students. Developing and reviewing items is currently still on going. The first pilot has been administrated in all partner institutions. Three additional pilots will follow during the project duration. After each pilot they will evaluate the students, the purpose of the test and if the results are what they expected and meaningful.

The interim report submitted to the European Union has been accepted, so the results so far are sufficient and the project has an impact already in all institutions. Teachers are more aware of the benefits of this testing method and the usage in an international context. Moreover, they are more skilled now in item writing and reviewing. Although, item writing was very demanding for each institution but it was not possible to develop such an amount of items (currently around 1300) without this grant. During the AMEE conference in Glasgow we hope to present our lessons learned.

The next years, work will be dedicated to the sustainability of this project and hopefully more institutions would like to be included in this consortium.
