Exam(s)

J!4 Administrator exam

The Question Management System (QMS) has been updated to J!4. We are also implemented a workflow to assist in reviewing and updating the Administrator to J!4.

On Saturday 30 OctoberI the Exam Maintainers team met to discuss the review and update process.
Laura and Shrielle (see team news) will now carry out the first step in the review process.

(In July the JCP team and the Programs Department members agreed to us focussing on updating the Administration Exam to reflect the forthcoming release of Joomla version 4.0. It was always agreed that we will not update the J!3 version of the Administrator exam.)

Operations and Marketing

There are no other updates from the Operations and Marketing team (mainly due to the lack of exams).

Website and Exam platform

Shika: (new exam platform) - still no change since June.

At this point in time we have not found any 'show stoppers' with Shika itself, but have some problems with the question management component. We need a Platform Developer to help us with this, as mentioned above, the position has been shared in the May issue of the JCM (see above).
