“We have heeded higher education’s call for change with CBE programs through this expansion of the SmarterMeasure™ engine."
Prattville, AL (PRWEB) July 12, 2016
SmarterServices LLC, provider of online assessment-related services, announced that it will be releasing a new, expanded version of its flagship solution, SmarterMeasure™, later this summer. SmarterMeasure™ provides a content-agnostic, highly-configurable engine to design and deliver custom assessments, as well as several standard assessments offered by SmarterServices™.
When released this summer, SmarterServices™ will continue to offer The Learning Readiness Indicator™, and the two cognitive assessments, Math Readiness and Writing Readiness. In addition, a Competency-Based Education Readiness Indicator will be offered to meet the growing demand of measuring student preparedness to participate in Competency-Based Education (CBE) programs.
Additionally, corporations and educational institutions will be able to author custom assessments to be hosted from within the web-based SmarterMeasure™ assessment engine. This new capability empowers customers to leverage SmarterMeasure™ insights and assessments, but also to yield and collect exact data tailored to their precise needs with assessments of their own design.
“We have heeded higher education’s call for change with CBE programs through this expansion of the SmarterMeasure™ engine,” explains Dr. Mac Adkins, CEO and Founder of SmarterServices™. “Since demonstration of mastery via assessment is an integral part of CBE programs, it is imperative that the assessments be robust, valid, reliable and administered in a controlled environment.”
To learn more about SmarterMeasure™, SmarterServices™ invites you to register for its upcoming live webinar on July 20 at 2:00 pm Eastern, titled “GPS the Path to Student Success: SmarterMeasure™ Best Practices.” Visit the SmarterServices™ booth, #4511, at Blackboard World at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, July 13 – 17, for a personal demonstration sneak preview of this new release.
