Zimbabwe Schools Examinations Council (ZIMSEC)

Zimsec Ministry of Education

The Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (Zimsec) is an internationally accredited examinations board responsible for high stakes school assessments.

Zimsec is at the heart of Zimbabwe’s education sector, and is widely regarded as a centre of excellence within Africa.

The Zimbabwe Schools Examinations Council (Zimsec) wanted to strengthen the security and increase the quality and efficiency of its examination production processes.

The Zimsec Board and Senior Management therefore decided to use an electronic item banking system to deliver better quality examination content, reduce the risk of leakages and ensure tighter operational control over exam authoring.

They are now in their fifth year of using the GradeMaker Pro software and are using it successfully to write 37 subjects.
