Wiley, the global leader in research, publishing, and knowledge solutions, has recently unveiled online mock and practice tests for UPSC aspirants with remedial content for the prelims exam, the first screening stage of one of the toughest exams in the country.
The newly launched initiative offers a series of online practice and mock tests – subject-wise and comprehensive full-length tests – each designed with a unique and special objective. The subject-wise test series helps learners gauge their subject or topic-wide expertise. In contrast, the comprehensive full-length test series helps them evaluate their readiness for the prelims exam. Learners are also provided with remedial content for each practice paper.
Vibha Mahajan, Senior Director of Wiley, stated based on her expertise with adaptive learning:
Wiley offers insightful reports backed by metacognitive data to the test takers so that each aspirant can focus on specific areas of improvement, subsequently helping them elevate their performance and scores. We are still in the early stages of our entry, but we are confident in our ability to grow and expand our offerings. We will be listening closely to learner feedback to guide our future decisions.
Wiley supports the world’s academics, learners, innovators, and leaders, helping them achieve their goals and address the world’s most pressing challenges. The platform has been fulfilling its eternal objective of unlocking human potential for more than two centuries.
Mahajan added that Wiley will soon launch ‘Computing Now’, an innovative direct-to-customer offering for higher education learners. It will be a subscription-based offering of Wiley’s acclaimed titles in computer science for students. In the B2B domain, it has launched a massive collection of over 20,000 e-books to enrich the higher education institution libraries with the knowledge and content students require to excel academically. Having done business in India for the last two decades, Wiley has experienced a sharp rise in online learning programs, providing both flexibility and affordability. The government is also placing a greater emphasis on research and innovation, which will likely lead to an increase in research output.
She further mentioned that skills-based learning has become a focus area for talent, owing to the demands of the changing job market.
