Computer-Based Testing

States realize the benefits of moving their accountability assessments from paper to computer. Computer-based testing allows for added security, innovative item types, and greater efficiency. Moving testing to an online platform also cuts many shipping, receiving, and scanning costs.

Measured Progress works hand-in-hand with its clients, before, during, and after testing to ensure that administrators, educators, and students are well-prepared for an online testing experience.

We work with states to inventory infrastructure, evaluate technology, and train both technical staff and teachers. Ultimately, our goal is to provide value, service, and support to clients and their learning communities each step of the way.

Measured Progress has made significant investments in its computer-based testing platform, iTest, to provide secure, student-friendly, customized testing programs for states.
