Who we work with
Our educational assessment solutions can benefit any organization that needs high-quality assessment, whether it is advanced psychometrics, top-shelf security, or innovative item types. Here are some of the groups we have worked with:
- National ministries of assessment; providing large-scale nationwide assessments
- University admissions; nationwide assessments for both undergraduate and graduate admissions
- University placement exams; testing incoming students to ensure they have necessary skills, and placing them into additional resources if needed
- Large school districts: formative benchmark assessments used as pre/post measurements and also as practice for state summative assessments
- Summative assessments for graduate/professional school

Cloud or On-Premise
Our educational assessment platforms can be provided on the cloud (SaaS) or on-premise.
Many educational assessment platforms provide basic functionality for exams. Most of them are quite limited. On addition to delivering exams, true assessment platforms should include item banking, item review workflow, support for Standard Setting studies, test publishing, automated psychometric reporting, and the rest of the educational assessment lifecycle.
High-quality educational assessment platforms can be used for many types of assessment. Our platforms work equally well with formative assessment and summative assessment. Whether you are doing benchmark online exams for students, or high-stakes exams like university admissions or certificate/achievement exams, we have the solution.
Formative assessment refers to assessment as part of the learning process, such as benchmark exams given halfway through a school year to see where a student stands so that instruction can be better directed; the test is not used to make any real decisions such as pass/fail. Summative assessment on the other hand is done at the end of learning, and usually has some sort of decision like pass/fail. However, in many cases, the decision is at an aggregate level and not about the individual student, like state-based exams at the end of 8th grade to see if students are mastering the curriculum, or if the curriculum (or instructional practices) need to be changed.
You control access for your users, and all aspects of how the test is delivered – lockdown browser, proctoring, entry into the exam, time limits, navigation controls, and tons more.
If your educational assessments include essay questions, you need an efficient way to grade them. Our platform includes an integrated module that allows teachers to view the essays (anonymously or non-anonymously), leave marks on customized rubrics, and flag issue/exemplar essays. This will drastically reduce the time and effort needed to grade essays.
