Photograph of computerTOIA is an advanced online assessment management system available free of charge to all UK further and higher education institutions. Optimised for compliance with the developing international specifications for assessment content, TOIA aims to remove many of the barriers for teachers who wish to move into computer-assisted assessment - and avoid lock-in to a particular proprietary system.

The free TOIA hosted service was available for use by the community. Alternatively, you could download the software and install it at your own site.

The hosted service has now been terminated. To acquire a copy of TOIA, you can get in touch with one of the contacts at the University of Strathclyde.

The TOIA Assessment Management System (AMS) has the following features:

  • Pedagogical and functional direction by leading UK CAA experts
  • Sophisticated administration and reporting options
  • 9 question types
  • Completely web-based
  • Secure and robust
  • Optimised for standards compliance (IMS QTI, Content Packaging and IEEE Learning Object Metadata)
  • Customisable user interface
The TOIA Project was funded by JISC as part of the Exchange for Learning (X4L) Programme.
