But by using the Aspire software with our scanners, educators will have the opportunity to create and administer their exams and then collect relevant and valuable data that will allow them to address gaps in learning and teaching.
Charlotte, NC (Vocus) February 20, 2009
Apperson Education Products has partnered with Northrop Grumman Corporation to provide a critical tool for the popular formative assessment software that Northrop Grumman developed known as the Aspire Assessment System.
The two companies developed a unique relationship that allows them to help promote one another's products as they both share the common goal of providing a product that communicates students' test results to their educators on demand.
Apperson proudly gained partnership with the comprehensive Aspire solution by providing a test scanner that will score students' tests and allow educators to upload the test data immediately into the Aspire software. With Apperson providing the key to populating the Aspire software with student test results, instructors can now gain access to immediate feedback during the learning process, allowing for timely intervention and remediation.
"I have spoken with educators across the nation and their main struggle is figuring out how to differentiate their instruction because they don't have the data they need to make justified decisions," said Jessica Adamson, K-12 Education Products Manager at Apperson Education Products. "But by using the Aspire software with our scanners, educators will have the opportunity to create and administer their exams and then collect relevant and valuable data that will allow them to address gaps in learning and teaching."
Apperson's and Northrop Grumman's plan moving forward is to further break ground in the education community by offering both a complete and user-friendly solution to formative assessments.
Apperson Education Products, established in 1992 as a division of Apperson Print Resources, strives to provide today's educators with low-cost, quality-driven productivity tools. For more information, please call 800.827.9219 or visit their website at http://www.appersonedu.com.
