San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) October 21, 2008
The Educational Assessment business of Pearson today announced the release of Stanford 10 Online, a multiple-choice assessment that helps educators determine student achievement in real-time for grades three through 12. The online version of the Stanford Achievement Test Series -- the leading standard in achievement testing for more than 80 years -- allows for automated capture of student responses and real-time reporting and scoring, providing immediate reliable data to evaluate student performance and plan effective instruction.
With Stanford 10 Online, school administrators can more easily obtain data to evaluate progress toward meeting educational standards set forth by the No Child Left Behind Act, as well as other national and state standards.
"The beauty of Stanford 10 Online is that it requires no physical commitment from school administrators or staff to store, secure, distribute, organize, or ship thousands of booklets and answer documents," said Deloris Flint, Director of Products, Pearson. "Everything is stored on secure Pearson servers, easily accessible to authorized district users anytime, thereby saving school districts significant overhead costs as well as time in test administration."
With less time spent in test administration and waiting for results, teachers have more time for instruction and the data needed to focus instruction on student needs. Included with each assessment is a practice test, online tools, such as a ruler needed for taking the test, and directions for administration.
Stanford 10 Online offers the following special features:
- Complete testing battery including reading, language, spelling, mathematics, science, and social studies for grades 3-12
- Immediate scoring
- Proctoring feature that allows a teacher or proctor to always know and follow the progress of each student as he or she completes the test
- Reporting functionality capable of generating reports at the student and group (group, class, school, district) levels and as a master test list of results
- Online web-based testing platform requiring minimal bandwidth
- Delivery via an Application Service Provider (ASP) model requiring no additional software or hardware installation
- Secure browser feature ensuring security of test and student data
- Clean user interface and design that enables a positive and successful student testing experience
In addition, Stanford 10 Online provides parents with intuitive PDF reports, enabling them to not only better understand where opportunities for improvement exist, but how to go about helping their children succeed.
