Qube-Profiler

At Qube Vocational Development Ltd we believe the cornerstone to effective Procurement/Supply Chain training is the establishment of clearly defined goals together with an understanding of the gap between existing competence and the required state.
 
Utilising the latest Computer Assisted Assessment (CAA) technology we have developed Qube-Profiler, an on-line Formative Diagnostic Assessment Tool (F-DAT). Based on our Supply Chain Competency model Qube-Profiler forms the basis of our integrated approach to people development enabling us to both measure and benchmark a students underpinning knowledge with respect to task focussed competencies specific to their job role.

Although a standard feature of our programme, we can also utilise Qube-Profiler as part of an organisational training needs analysis, greatly reducing both cost and the logistical difficulties normally associated with ‘traditional’ assessment methodologies.
 
Qube-Profiler is the first application in our ‘multi-method’ approach to formative diagnostic assessment.


Delivery


As a Qube student Qube-Profiler provides us with an ‘on-line assessment’ facility to help us establish an understanding of your ‘technical’ procurement awareness with respect to task focussed competencies and as such will form the basis of our Initial Competency Profiling Assessment
 
Qube-Profiler utilises ‘Scorable Application Forms’ each containing a number of multiple choice questions specific to an identified competency or module. Based upon the requirements of the student we can nominate up to 11 modules to be completed – each module takes approximately 10 – 15 minutes to complete.
 
Following receipt of your course registration documentation we will issue you with your own unique log-in ID and password for our on-line assessment centre. The nominated modules can then be completed in one session or over a number of sessions – whichever you prefer! Upon completion of each module your answers are ‘autosaved.’
