Online Assessment

Ever wish you could be at every student's desk at the same time?

We've researched online assessment since the turn of the (21st) century.

Online AssessmentIt's every teacher's dream โ€“ to be able to work one-on-one with all students in a class. Or to know instantly how all students are doing at learning a topic. With technology-based assessment and support, these are very possible today.

With our technology, you can blend assessment directly into your lesson โ€“ say goodbye to lost worksheets and photocopied supplementary materials. And with embedded assessments, you'll receive immediate reports about how students are doing, with many answers automatically graded.

But that's just the beginning.

Students using models and simulations can demonstrate learning in ways that reach far beyond simple open responses and multiple choice answers. Using our software, students can answer with an annotated image of a model or simulation. Or show their knowledge by designing and conducting a virtual experiment.

For the past decade, we've been showing that tracking student actions can transform simple interactive explorations into rich, automated performance assessments. And ongoing research is breaking new ground showing the power of formative assessment technology too.

Our active projects are researching how you can

  • Use simulations to measure inquiry learning directly
  • Capture real-time student responses to transform teaching and learning
  • Build your own online embedded assessments โ€“ and include simulations and data collection

But don't just take our word for it.
