College Board – Puerto Rico

The College Board of Puerto Rico y America Latina (CBPRAL) has partnered with ASC to utilize our FastTest platform to manage their large-scale assessment programs. CBPRAL has 1600 staff and delivers a range of assessments across the Spanish-speaking world. The project has started by transferring tens of thousands of items from the previous system to FastTest, which can now be used for item review and form assembly. While FastTest can be used to deliver tests online, CBPRAL typically delivers tests on paper because of restricted access to technology in certain stakeholder countries. FastTest provides a sound platform for CBPRAL to upload datasets from paper delivery for automated scoring and reporting, including item response theory. CBRPAL will begin to use FastTest for authoring and review of future items and test forms.

ACTVET

For the past 3 years, ASC has partnered with the Abu Dhabi Center for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (ACTVET) for assessment development, delivery, and analytics. ACTVET is a governmental organization for national educational assessment in the United Arab Emirates, especially in the 12+ and college prep area. They transitioned from paper to online delivery when starting with ASC, quickly ramping up to delivering 100,000 tests per year. They also deliver the teacher certification exams for the country, an example of how FastTest can be used for quite different assessment programs within the same organization. ACTVET makes extensive use of tech-enhanced items and open-response items in addition to traditional formats, which are collaboratively developed by content experts and then delivered reliably in our platform. Results are analyzed and scored with the Rasch model, including facet models, an example of the strong psychometrics that our partners leverage to drive quality assessment.

Charles County Public School (CCPS)

ASC has partnered with Charles County (MD) Public Schools to provide an assessment development, delivery, and analytics platform which allows them to effectively run a mid-size testing company from the district office. With stakeholders of 25,000 students, 3,000 staff, dozens of content experts, and over a hundred testing programs, CCPS is dedicated to providing quality assessment. Staff collaboratively develop test content and publish it for delivery via paper (small programs) or online (large programs, intended to mimic PARCC with tech-enhanced items). All essay responses are marked online by staff, directly in our platform. All results are analyzed with item response theory by a full-time in-house PhD psychometrician, with scaled scoring reported to district staff via a complex BI portal. The portal is also used to drive formative feedback, such as informing teachers how students in their class performed on each item, bringing the assessment process full circle to drive instruction
