Killexams : CIMA Certification exam Prep Workshop from Chicago Booth

I am very happy to report that I passed the CIMA exam! Although I was part of the educational program at another school, there is no way I could have passed without the Chicago Booth review program and having been also granted access to the Chicago Booth CIMA program educational materials and live session videos. Kathleen’s voice was a constant companion as I listened to classes driving and even while on family vacation. Thank you so very much!

- Alan P. Jesiel, CFP®, CIMA®, Vice President, Senior Relationship Strategist, PNC Wealth Management


The University of Chicago has a well-planned approach to teaching the CIMA curriculum. All of the important concepts are covered in a clear, concise format. The professors really want to make sure you understand the material and go to great lengths to provide intuition behind some of the math concepts. The class is very interactive and the faculty make themselves easily accessible throughout the class. I strongly recommend this program to anyone considering attaining the designation.

- Todd Muentzer, CIMA®, ETF Specialist


This was a great overall experience.  Kathleen does a great job presenting and reviewing the content.  It was also beneficial to connect with other students preparing for the exam.

- Jon Maldonado, Financial Advisor, UBS Financial Services


Excellent program with in-depth analysis of calculation needed for course material.

- Robert Filetti, Robert Baird


This class was far above my expectations.  This is a great value for the cost.

- Alicia Frye, Regional Business Consultant, Symmetry Partners


I got the passing score I needed to finally achieve my CIMA credentials. I was and am still ecstatic about this accomplishment and absolutely credit it to the Chicago Booth workshop and team for helping me get here. I would tell anyone interested in the CIMA program or who is trying to finish the certification process that the Booth workshop is the way to go.

- Jen Litton, CDFA, CIMA®


Having the two day review class at Booth is a major differentiator from the other education programs. Having a two day intensive review upon completion of the material helped me identify areas of weakness that I needed to focus on before the exam and embolden my confidence in the material I knew well coming into the exam.

- Greg Goin CFP®, CIMA®, CLU®, CRPC® Advisory Solutions Director


There are very few people that I have met that have a true depth of knowledge in their field.  Kathleen is one of them.  She is amazing in her understanding of the concepts.

Killexams : Education board changing high school accountability ratings

The Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education will review a proposal later this month to change how high schools are rated following an eight month study by an Accountability Study Group.

The study group, composed of members of the BESE, will present a series of proposed changes to the full board on Aug. 23, the most controversial of which center on better aligning high school letter grades with the results from student LEAP tests and other proficiency measures.

Much of the focus centers on the reality that only 37% of Louisiana high school students are considered proficient on LEAP tests measuring mastery in math, English, social studies and science, while 70% of the state’s public high schools have received A or B letter grades.

Those figures are in contrast to more balanced ratings for elementary schools, where 35% of students achieved mastery on state assessments and 41% of schools are rated A or B.

“When we are talking about high schools it is hard for me to reconcile that 37% of our kids are mastering content, 18 on the ACT is our average and 70% of high schools are A and B,” Louisiana Superintendent Cade Brumley told The Advocate following a Monday study group meeting.

“And so I am just trying to raise the expectations, raise the standards, and I think our high schools will rise to that level of expectation.”

Superintendents across the state have pushed back on the proposal and timeline for implementing changes, which would potentially reduce bonus points schools can earn for things like students graduating on time, passing college-level classes or exams or a WorkKeys test for students pursuing a career after high school.

The study group proposal would implement changes beginning with the 2025-26 school year, through superintendents pushed to delay the changes until 2026 or beyond.

Michael Faulk, executive director of the Louisiana Association of School Superintendents, told The Center Square that instead of implementing the changes with students who are now sophomores, “it would make more sense to begin with the 9th grade cohort for the 2023-24 school year.”

Faulk said superintendents have also raised concerns with a lack of clarity on dual enrollment courses that would qualify for points under the new system, as well as “unintended consequences” for student subgroups, such as English language learners.

“You have implications for these sub groups I don’t think they’re taking into consideration,” he said.

Faulk expressed concerns about financial constraints for rural districts in northern Louisiana that would also struggle to offer certain course requirements. Other issues raised by superintendents deal with losing points for high schoolers who simply graduate.

“They’re giving no points to the districts if students just graduate,” Faulk said. “They get a diploma, but the district isn’t being rewarded for them getting that diploma.”

The proposal, outlined by the Accountability Study Group on Monday, “was the first time we saw some of the dynamics of it,” Faulk said.

The superintendents association is now crafting a draft proposal to address some of the concerns and offer general recommendations for improvement at the Aug. 23 BESE meeting.

Killexams : Stoa’s Charter For Top Business Talent is a Worthy MBA Challenger

“Stoa connected me to people who've had similar career trajectories but more experience. Conversations with them helped me gain clarity on my own career path. If not for Stoa, I wouldn't have visited Bangalore for a week last year and wouldn't have met the person who offered me a job and is now my boss.”

Vikrant Mehra, Fellow, Stoa Cohort 2

Backed by founders of Zerodha, CRED, Udemy, Redbus, Myntra, and other Indian startups, the Stoa Charter derives its prestige and value from the fact that the bar to entry is high. Not every candidate in the Stoa Program gets through. Each level certifies a certain level of competency and capability to bring value to a business. These are awarded to individuals who complete the sprints and clear the test for the respective level. One passes each level by solving case studies that mimic the challenges businesses face today and pitching solutions to a panel of judges who test for subject-specific skills, way of thinking, and communication skills.

L1 trains people on ‘professional hygiene’ (commercial awareness, writing skills, communication, and analytical thinking) and business fundamentals. To receive L1 charter, candidates will solve and present the case for a given business problem in front of a jury to show their problem-solving skills and thought processes.

L2 is for learning domain-specific skills and clearing this is based on how one solves business problems in that domain. Let's say someone wants to get into marketing but has less or no marketing experience: Clearing L2 in the marketing domain will prove that they can take on a marketing role even without previous experience because Stoa would have trained and tested the candidates with enough industry problems.

Killexams : Edtech Unicorn upGrad Buys Test-Prep Provider Exampur Marking 5th Acquisition Of 2022

upGrad said that it sees test-prep as a high potential growth driver

Exampur aims to close INR 70 Cr ($7.5 Mn) revenue in the current fiscal year

Exampur is upGrad’s second acquisition of a similar category since its latest fundraising in June

Edtech startup upGrad has acquired test-preparation startup Exampur in an undisclosed deal. 

In its fifth acquisition this year, upGrad said that it sees test-prep as a high potential growth driver and the deal, which is a 100% merger agreement, fits well into its learning initiative.

Inc42 has reached out to upGrad for further information about the deal and will update the article when the company responds.

“I realise that it (test-prep segment) comes with a high customer acquisition cost (CAC), but it also delivers higher returns in terms of outcomes,” said Gaurav Kumar, president, Corporate Development, upGrad. 

“Therefore, we wanted a partner with the right set of DNA within this space and Exampur seamlessly fits into our LifeLongLearning jigsaw,” Kumar added. 

Cofounded by Vivek Kumar and Vardan Gandhi in 2018, Exampur is a Noida-based learning platform that offers over 200 test-prep courses for various competitive exams to crack government jobs. It delivers a majority of the content through its YouTube channels.

As per upGrad, Exampur also offers online test series, free quizzes, and live scholarship tests to help aspirants assess their professional competencies and streamline learning process. 

Cumulatively, as the startup said, Exampur’s current subscriber base is over 12 Mn with an average viewership of 2.5 Mn students. Almost 90% of Exampur’s paid users are from Tier-2,3 and 4 markets.

Exampur further said it aims to achieve INR 70 Cr ($7.5 Mn) revenue in the current fiscal year.

Commenting on the deal, Vivek and Vardan, cofounders of Exampur said, “We are happy to have strong leadership support through upGrad who have already built a business which is set to outlast its peers and shall accelerate our growth in the coming times.”

Founded in 2015 by Ronnie Screwvala, Mayank Kumar, Ravijot Chugh and Phalgun Kompalli, upGrad offers higher education courses across the world. The edtech startup, which entered the unicorn club in August last year, claims to have a user base of 3 Mn in over 100 countries.

Exampur is upGrad’s second acquisition of a similar category (another edtech platform) since it raised $225 Mn in a fresh funding round from James Murdoch’s Lupa Systems LLC and Educational Testing Service (ETS) in June this year.

Prior to this, upGrad acquired B2B edtech startup Harappa Education for $38 Mn (INR 300 Cr) in July.

Besides, in July, upGrad’s a 100% subsidiary– Rekrut acquired WOLVES India, a recruitment and staffing company.

Also, earlier in May, it acquired an educational institute, the International School of Engineering (INSOFE) in a $33 Mn share swap deal.

In FY21, upGrad reported a consolidated loss after tax of INR 211 Cr in FY21, a 167.8% jump from INR 78.8 Cr in FY20. Its total FY21 expenses stood at INR 513.7 Cr, a 112.8% rise from INR 241.4 Cr in FY20.

Meanwhile, as per a last month’s report, a few edtech startups including upGrad, BYJU’S, and Unacademy came under the government’s scanner as the Department of Consumer Affairs has taken note of their alleged misselling of courses.

Pegged at $2.8 Bn in 2020, the market size of edtech is estimated to grow 3.7X in the next five years in India to $10.4 Bn in 2025, as per an Inc42 report

Update | August 2, 5:24 PM

Exampur is the fifth acquisition by upGrad in 2022, not fourth. The headline and story have been corrected to reflect this. The error is regretted.

Jobs

Delhi: Fuelled by its commitment of deep India penetration, upGrad – Asia’s higher Edtech major announced a 100% merger of Exampur – one of India’s largest test-prep providers for government jobs for an undisclosed amount.

Exampur looks to close revenue of INR 70 crores (USD 7.5 Mn) this fiscal.

Co-founded in 2018 by Vivek Kumar and Vardan Gandhi, the Noida-based learning platform has a user base of over 10 million students and offers over 200 test-prep courses for govt. jobs where most of the content is delivered through its 27+ YouTube channels including ones for the UPSC, SSC, Defence, Banking, Teaching, and other State-level Government job preparations.

Cumulatively, Exampur has a growing subscriber base of over 12 million with an average viewership of 2.5 million students and leads the Hindi-speaking markets across New Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, and Bihar. 90% of paid users of Exampur are from tier II, III and IV markets.

“We’ve created an integrated learning portfolio for our learners and within that matrix, we see test-prep as a high potential growth driver. I realise that it comes with a high customer acquisition cost (CAC), but it also delivers higher returns in terms of outcomes. Therefore, we wanted a partner with the right set of DNA within this space and Exampur seamlessly fits into our LifeLongLearning jigsaw. Both, Vivek, and Vardan come with an extremely defined goal of becoming the enablers than just providing a content library and I’m confident that their day-on-day live delivery capabilities with 200+ teachers through its channel are set to redefine vernacular learning for a larger base of youth across Bharat,” said Gaurav Kumar, President – Corporate Development, upGrad.

Additionally, Exampur offers value adds like online test series, free quizzes, and live scholarship tests to help aspirants assess their professional competencies and accordingly, streamline their learning process. It has one of the largest study material repositories and e-books portfolio for candidates who can easily access them anytime at their own convenience.

Commenting on the development, Vivek and Vardan, Co-founders, Exampur in a joint statement said, “It’s undeniable that the number of educated candidates in India is growing exponentially yet they are unemployed. It is also being supported by the pandemic-related disruptions, geopolitical situations, and rising inflation that are negatively hitting the employment elasticity within the country. Hence, we want our learners to walk that extra mile to understand the key to cracking such competitive exams and this is where we have created a hybrid learning model through our digital presence. We are happy to have strong leadership support through upGrad who have already built a business which is set to outlast its peers and shall accelerate our growth in the coming times. We look forward to making Exampur a household name and with upGrad, we see it reaching there really fast.”

Killexams : Doug Ford’s Plan To Force Teachers to Take Grade 6 Math Tests Has Cost Taxpayers Millions of Dollars
News

The math test was struck down as unconstitutional after teachers took Ford's government to court

Doug Ford’s controversial plan to force Ontario teachers to take the same grade six math tests as 11-year-olds has already cost taxpayers millions of dollars, even though the plan was struck down by the courts as unconstitutional.

In early 2020, Doug Ford’s government posted a tender notice for a contractor to test whether Ontario’s teacher candidates are smarter than sixth graders – with the “mathematics proficiency test.” In order to qualify as teacher, the Ford government obligated teacher candidates to pass a version of an EQAO test based on a series of strange claims that Ontario’s teachers are bad at math.

In 2018, Doug Ford repeatedly claimed Ontario “teachers can’t pass the same Grade 6 math test that they’re giving the students.” In the Ontario Legislature, Ford claimed “one-third of teachers at teachers’ college have failed grade 6 and grade 7 math.”

According to a fact-check, by the Ottawa Citizen, no such study exists. The article further notes that student teachers receive math training in teacher’s college and high school math teachers require university-level qualifications in their teaching area anyway.

The math test was struck down by a court challenge brought forward by the Ontario Teacher Candidates’ Council last year, but not before the EQAO projected it had spent over $2 million on the test between 2019 and 2022.

Education Quality and Accountability Office

Ontario Institute For Studies In Education Professor Mary Reid, who helped develop the test, said Doug Ford’s math test for teachers has always been a waste of time.

“Hypotenuse theory is not going to determine if a teacher can teach,” Reid told PressProgress. “Study after study after study has shown that it is a waste of resources, time and it’s a gatekeeper.”

Specifically, Reid said studies show those from marginalized groups, on average, face hurdles from standardized tests at higher rates. This, Reid says, is because they are less likely to be able to take time off work to study or receive tutoring or they are often failed by cultural biases in test make up.

“You are just maintaining the status quo when you have a system barrier,” Reid said. “To make this the final test, after you’ve worked so hard and jumped through so many hoops to get to this place, is a slap in the face.”

Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation President Karen Littlewood said teachers’ unions “consistently voiced concerns about the high-stakes, unnecessary math proficiency test (MPT) that the Ministry of Education implemented for newly trained teachers to receive certification with the Ontario College of Teachers.”

“It cost millions of dollars to administer even though there is little empirical evidence that these kind of standardized teacher tests are an indicator of teacher proficiency or student success,” Littlewood told PressProgress.

As of January 2022, the Ford government was ’ to fight the court ruling striking down the test for discrimination.

Neither the Ministry of Education nor EQAO responded to requests for comment from PressProgress.
