Frequently asked questions

How long does a test take to complete? 

It varies. All tests must be carried out within the ongoing work of the institution and so the educator chooses when it best fits in with his / her planning and schedule. When setting up the test, companies are advised to make their preferred deliverables and timeframes clear. 

What support do we get from Swedish Edtest? 

Swedish Edtest is responsible for all programme administration and supports all of the interactions between the education institutions and the EdTech companies. There is also a local project manager from the institution’s owner who participates in and who supports the planning and implementation of the test. 

Does Swedish Edtest require a formal contract to participate? 

We have a standard agreement available for everyone to use. This is signed by the institution’s lead contact and the testing company. We also provide policies, support and information relating to sensitive topics such as the handling and management of personal data (GDPR) and communicating / engaging with caregivers. 

Can all EdTech companies participate? 

Yes as long as you meet the following requirements: 

●     The digital learning resource must have a digital form and must be testable. 

●     You should be able to provide a description of the specific part of your resource you’re looking to test and what feedback you’re looking to receive to improve your resource further. 

What do EdTech companies need to do? 

It is expected that all companies should have a clearly defined focus for your test and that the feedback received will be used to further improve your digital learning resource. It is also expected that companies should follow the test guide and testing methodology outlined by Swedish Edtest at all times. 

Swedish Edtest is not a marketplace, so the focus is on dialogue and development rather than sales. Companies are welcome to book and lead any follow-up and / or further evaluation work with your testing educators. 

Who can we test our resources with? 

Swedish Edtest is run by senior education professionals working across the Swedish education system. This includes preschool, elementary school, high school, vocational institutions and universities. Tests are currently underway with educators at all of these levels. 

Does it cost anything to test our product? 

No - there’s no cost to participate in Swedish Edtest and no compensation is paid to educators or EdTech companies involved in a test. The purpose of a test is to gain valuable insight and knowledge about how your learning resource can be further developed and improved to fit the educator’s needs even more closely. It is important to note that any tests you conduct must not be linked to a future commercial agreement with the testing institution.
