Dugga helps Teachers in Europe with the sudden influx of Ukrainian students who can take tests in their local language

Swedish Edtech company Dugga Assessment is used by schools in over 130 countries for all types of tests and exams. Thanks to Dugga’s smart features that are research-based, teachers can even assess foreign students in their local language with Dugga’s in-built translation feature in Dugga’s platform.

Free licenses for teachers in Europe dealing with the current situation
This feature is especially valuable for teachers in European countries who are dealing with the sudden influx of Ukrainian students. For the Ukrainian students it means that language should not be an initial problem to get started in a foreign school. That’s why Dugga supports all teachers in Europe with free licenses to help them deal with the sudden influx of Ukrainian.

Quick action thanks to great team spirit and close connections with Ukraine
Knowledge speaks many languages. Swedish Edtech company Dugga has clearly understood this. The company has always had close connections with Ukraine through its team of developers based in Kyiv. Through the initiative of Dugga’s team, the Dugga platform was quickly translated into Ukrainian. Thanks to this team effort, Dugga’s platform supports now also the Ukrainian language for teachers, students and admins.

“Dugga always strives to provide equal learning opportunities for everyone, and to me as a woman in tech, equality and inclusiveness are the values that I personally share and can relate to. Being a Ukrainian myself, it was important to take immediate action to help Ukrainian children to proceed with their studies. Our development teams were eager to add the Ukrainian language. This is a crucial step to include teachers and students from Ukraine.”, says Anastasiia Bovsunovska, Team Lead Developer at Dugga.

“This initiative of our members shows true team spirit and passion behind the cause to help both teachers and Ukrainian students during these challenging times. We are very proud of our team!”, say Claudia Rademaker and Patrik Nilsson, Co-founders of Dugga.

Dutch Football Academy uses Dugga

Today was the first time SkillmovesAcademy trainers walked around with their new jackets with the Dugga logotype! Dugga is happy to announce this new collaboration which also includes practical aspects for the players in using Dugga as an assessment platform for physical education and injury prevention. Head coach Bayram Sahin explains.

Hello Bayram, how do you use Dugga at the SkillmovesAcademy?
– We are using Dugga and our plan is to implement this into the training system, for example we are planning to start with implementing it into the private training sessions. This way we can give more attention to the kids not only on the pitch but also off the pitch.

What difference did it make compared to before you started using Dugga?
– Dugga made our football academy look more special than any other academy.

How was the response among the kids and parents?
– We got many positive reactions regarding this idea and we hope it will be successful for the coming years. We are very hopeful.

Do you use Dugga for assessment of theoretical questions connected to health and injury prevention in the team?
– Yes, we did in the Pilot. For the older kids 13-17 years of age this is a must because they need to think more about their health and injury prevention than our younger kids.

How important are the many security features in Dugga. Securing fair and unbiased assessment of each individual’s knowledge?
Every child has the right to be judged only on basis of their knowledge and performance in the football field, and I fully support the way Dugga is implementing this into their grading system. Every child should have equal chances on and off the pitch! Dugga is the right digital tool for securing that ambition.
