by Randy Bennett (Barbados Today) The Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) says its new Data Intelligence Gateway online platform will allow it to serve its regional stakeholders more efficiently.
The new gateway is a central website that will provide dashboards of various categories of information. It will allow Ministries of Education across the region and examination centres to access necessary information such as statistics on electronic school-based assessments (e-SBAs), registrations, and results.
CXC registrar and chief executive officer Dr Wayne Wesley said the regional examinations body is undergoing digital transformation aimed at providing improved and more efficient services.
“Digital transformation is more than a catchphrase for us at CXC, it is our vision. As this year marks our 50th anniversary of serving the region, CXC’s vision is to become a digitally transformed enterprise providing quality, relevant, and globally recognised educational services. Accordingly, CXC is transforming for greater regional impact and we are doing this through our e-transition framework,” he said on Tuesday at the launch of the initiative at the Auditorium Conference Centre, Government Campus Plaza in Trinidad and Tobago.
