This project represents over 10 years of man hours and development time for Cooltide, making it by far, our largest project to date. The application is a UK government issued CD-ROM, used nationwide for assessing Basic Skills, in over 10,000 institutions, and is part of the Strategy Unit commitment to provide effective assessment tools. Note for 2006: The application was used by over 20,000 institutions. Cooltide also offered user technical support services for this application on behalf of the DfES. After 6 years in the field, this product has now come to the end of it's life. Its success has been immense. 100,000s of people nationwide have been (and continue to be) assessed for Basic Skills.
