teachers spend an average of 50 hours per week on instructional duties, including an average of 12 hours each week on non-compensated school-related activities such as grading papers, bus duty and club advising.
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 17, 2008
Tribrio, Inc. has just unveiled a new and improved version of its flagship product: Test Designer. A complimentary service designed to streamline the creation of educational tests and worksheets, Test Designer is poised to free up the many after-hours teachers devote to such duties. Pre-K through post-graduate educators who would like to leverage Test Designer's 3,500+ exam questions can sign up for a free membership online at http://www.testdesigner.com.
According to the National Education Association (NEA), "teachers spend an average of 50 hours per week on instructional duties, including an average of 12 hours each week on non-compensated school-related activities such as grading papers, bus duty and club advising." Included among these off-the-clock tasks are worksheet and exam preparation, the time consumption of which, week after week, month after month, can quickly add up to major infringement on educators' personal time. Test Designer aims to change trend.
Test Designer is a free membership service that allows teachers to flexibly leverage member-generated content to create tests and worksheets that are tailored to their teaching material. It also affords educators the opportunity to write their own professional tests and share their questions with other members. This sharing capability positions Test Designer as an ideal environment for educators within the same school district.
Unlike other test development sites, which offer pre-created worksheets at a high cost to the end user, TestDesigner.com members are charged absolutely no fee for their membership. Even the Test Designer Pro premium subscription, which affords members the opportunity to include graphical representations like shapes, clocks, graphs, money and rulers within their questions, is offered on a six-month free-trial basis.
Some of the benefits TestDesigner.com members will receive are:
- The ability to create professional-looking math equations
- Access to thousands of member-generated questions in a wide range of subject matters
- The capability of printing worksheets with their corresponding answer keys
- The option to email worksheets to students
