News for Private Centre Customers
Private Centre Reports Now Accessible on ExamTrack
Up until now we have been sending out reports such as draft timetables and special attention reports as an email attachment. To make life easier and prevent emails getting lost, you can now access all the relevant reports related to planning and preparing for your Private Centre Exam Events via your ExamTrack login. These are formatted in the same way and can be printed in full, or in part.
Please look out for the email notifications telling you there are reports available.
For examination events starting from 15 February 2023, we will no longer send any of these reports by email. The only reports you will receive by email will be the Results Summary when your learners have completed their exams and they have been marked and moderated.
News for Remote Online Assessment Customers
Update on Remote Online Assessments (ROAs) for Group Exams
LAMDA has been working on delivering remote online assessment (ROAs) for Group Exams. Testing has been undertaken to explore different assessment methods to ensure that the Group ROAs are fully comparable with Group Face-to-Face examinations. The testing has indicated that conducting Group ROAs, in the same manner as we conduct other ROA exams, does not work. This is because of the limitations of remote meeting software. Therefore, there has been a delay in delivering the Group Exams online. A self-tape option is currently being explored, but we need to test it before offering the exams in this format.
Please note that, due to interactive elements that are part of the Assessment Criteria, some Group Exams will not be offered in online format and will be only available as Face-to-Face exams. These exams are Level 3 Group Devising Drama and Introductory (all stages). We strive to bring you a solution for all other Group ROAs by the end of 2023 and will keep you updated on our progress.

Change to LAMDA’s Learner Examination Report (LER)
Please be aware that LAMDA now prints on both sides of the Learner Examiner Report. This means that when you receive your results, the Examiner comments may be printed on the second page, which will be on the reverse of the document.
