The SSAC Digital Examination Production and Audit System in Azerbaijan
In 2012, the State Students Admission Commission (SSAC) of Azerbaijan developed a Digital Examination Production and Audit System (DEPAAS). The main objective of DEPAAS is to improve the quality of printed materials, to produce personalized test books for each test taker, packed according to testing rooms and test centers. Fully automated production assures accuracy of entire test printing process. The system was tested in 2014 and firstly used in low-stake exams. Starting from 2015, DEPAAS started to be implemented almost for all SSAC’s exams and about 600.000 test books were printed via this system.
