This mini grant will allow for preliminary assessment of Inspera Assessment software at WMU. The Norwegian company Inspera AS presents a more versatile digital assessment platform than the Respondus lockdown browser which is the current WMU platform. Specifically, Inspera offers MS Excel enabled examinations which is not possible with Respondus or similar platforms such as Proctorio or TopHat. However, assessing the capabilities of Inspera is expected to be a challenging, multidisciplinary, and time-consuming endeavor. This grant application requests funding for faculty time to document the capacity of Inspera Assessment to support WMU finance courses.


Dr. Matthew Ross, Associate Professor of Finance from the Development of Finance and Commercial Law, was a recipient of one of the 2023 WMU Assessment Mini Grants, awarded to conduct research on assessment of student learning outcomes. Attached is the final report from the research project.
