The Practical Guide to Digital Assessment


Digital assessments can equip students to perform their best in complex disciplinary fields and progress with confidence as lifelong learners. Unlike paper-based testing, digital assessments can deliver individual and organization-wide benefits, such as interactive learning experiences and actionable data insights, without adding to the burden on school or university staff. 

However, with many vendors offering various types of assessment tools for K-12, universities and credentialing programs, it can be difficult to determine which technology will reap the best results for your institution.

In this eBook, we’ve laid out the blueprint for selecting a digital assessment platform that not only smoothly integrates into your existing systems, but enables you to do more in the classroom and organization-wide. Fill out the form to the right to download your copy of "The Practical Guide to Digital Assessment."
