The TADAT secretariat in cooperation with IMF’s Institute for Capacity Development
and edX, a non- profit online learning initiative by MIT and Harvard, created an
online training course that will help experienced tax administrators become trained
The course, titled TADATx: Tax Administration Diagnostic Assessment Tool – Training
for Assessors, is hosted on edx platform (www.edx.org)
and consists of 12 modules. Each module is about 45 minutes long. The modules take
the candidates through the TADAT methodology and the scoring criteria for each of
the 9 performance outcome areas. In addition there will be case studies and practice
tests in each module.
At the end of the 12 modules, candidates will have to take an online exam. Once
scheduled, candidates can take the exam from their own computer. Digital verification/proctoring
as proof of identity will be used during the examination. Candidates will be required
to present a picture ID (passport, driver’s license, etc.).
Only registered candidates will be enrolled into the course. Prior to enrollment
all registered candidates will be asked to create an account with edX. Please visit
the registration page for registration details and qualification requirements.
The next online course will run from September 20, 2016 through April 30, 2017. The exam will remain available until May 15, 2017.
