Robust Online Assessment Increases the Marketability of Your Solution
Dramatically extend the capabilities of your solution through the integration of INFORM Assessment, which adds a powerful set of capabilities for motivating student learning.
Your clients will benefit from built-in best practices for test-building and automated workflows that make it easy to track student levels of understanding.
Because INFORM is built on an open platform, you control multiple options for test items:
- A standards-aligned item bank with technology enhanced items, available through INFORM
- The ability for educators to create items and align them to standards
- Integration of your item bank or third-party and district item banks (supported by QTI 2.1)
Partners can count on EDmin’s technology
for next-generation assessment:
Using our open platform is better than building your own solution from scratch because you can quickly provide a reliable, competitive feature set.
Designed with years of educator feedback, the platform saves time every step of the way:
Options for Easy Test-building
- Educator-selected: Educators can create assessments in 3 easy steps, using built-in best practices for item selection, etc.
- Auto-generated: Educators can automatically generate standards-based assessments based on a set of criteria including standards, number of items, item type, depth of knowledge, difficulty and cognitive level. The system will randomly select a set of items that meet the criteria and “automatically” build the test.
- Auto-generated and randomized: Educators can automatically generate standards-based assessments using question blocks, a selection of items grouped together that assess the same standard. Each student’s test questions are selected randomly from the question blocks.
- A variety of item types help assess standards appropriately on next-generation assessments, with additional types being added throughout 2015. Current types include:
- Short-answer and constructed-response
- Constructed-response items with scoring rubrics
- Mode-specific writing prompts with scoring rubrics
- Technology-enhanced items (TEIs): multiple correct, order choice, inline choice, text entry, gap match and hot text
- Tests can be delivered to and taken by students via online testing or paper and pencil.
- Results are automatically uploaded to role-based reports.
- Pre-built reports show class ranking, provide item analysis and more.
- Reports can be integrated with INFORM Resources to generate suggestions for aligned digital content to meet individual students needs
Personalized Instruction and Grouping
- Students are easily grouped for RTI or enrichment.
- Teachers can assign online assessments directly to students.
Import and Export of Assessment Data
