FAQs

  • How do my learners access bksb?

    Once they have been set up with a login, your learners will be provided with a URL, username and password for bksb. They will then be able to access bksb from anywhere with an internet connection.

  • How does the AI assessment work?

    Our assessments use Item Response Theory and a wealth of historic data to judge each learner's level each time they answer a question. This, in turn, informs the next question that is chosen, resulting in a bespoke assessment that creates a detailed and intelligent judgement of the learner's current level.

  • Can bksb connect with other Advanced solutions?

    bksb progression data can be imported into our Learner Management System, PICS, our ePortfolio, Smart Assessor, and our ILP & Markbook solution, ProMonitor.

  • What help and support is available for users?

    As well as several inbuilt video guides for common processes, our expert in-house support team are on hand to help with any issues you may have.

  • Where can I take the exam?

    The exam can be taken through a training provider or your local college.

  • Can we deliver our exams through you?

    We cannot provide you with an accreditation, but we can support your learner journey experience through our assessments and interactive resources.
