Dugga is developed by pedagogical experts with many years of experience in education
Dugga is a spin off from a research and development project conducted by Stockholm School of Economics, Stockholm University, Royal Institute of Technology, Umeå University, University of Nijmegen Arnhem and Stics Research. The research project was part of the Swedish Educational Technology initiative called ”The School of the Future”, which was pointed out as an area of strategic importance by the Swedish minister of education. The directives pointed out that an important aspect of the development of a digital examination system was to combine academic research and development in the same way as the school system in general rests upon scientific research. Dugga is exactly that. Based on scientific research, developed together with schools, teachers and students.
The digital learning assessment system Dugga has been developed as a platform independent and operating system independent examination system to be used for tests, diagnostics, exams, home exams, assignments and similar written knowledge assessment.
Objective. Secure. Effective.
Teachers, like our founders, love to share knowledge with students. In quite an altruistic fashion they dedicate their lives to the cause of teaching. However, when embarking upon their careers at a very young age very few of them nurture a dream of marking and grading piles of paper exams and assignments. Instead, it is the interaction with the student and the satisfaction of seeing students grow that drives teachers. Dugga Learning Assessment is the result of an idea to let teachers teach and to use computer power and technology to take care of the piles of exams.
Dugga allows fair assessment since modern students are more used to writing with a computer and keyboard rather than paper and pen. In addition, with Dugga students are assessed anonymously and without any bias.
From the very start teachers and students have been involved in the development of Dugga. As a matter of fact, we specifically wanted input from teachers who were not particularly interested in or impressed by things like EdTech, IT, computers and the like. We actively sought the views, ideas and opinions from those teachers who were utterly uninterested of IT. Our ambition was that if we could develop a digital assessment system that was so easy to use that even teachers uninterested in IT could use it, then it would be a piece of cake for avid users to get started with Dugga.
