About the Cirrus Introductory Training


After completing the Cirrus Introductory Training course, participants will have a basic understanding of the way the Cirrus Platform can be used in the creation and delivery of questions and assessments. They will immediately be able to start creating Items and Assessments and be aware of other steps and roles involved in the assessment process.

Target Audience
