The Japanese Ministry of Education Adopts TAO as the Platform of Choice for Digitizing Assessment Nationwide

 

The Japanese Ministry of Education serves over 12,000,000  students, having primarily relied on paper-based assessment to conduct their testing programs in schools at a national level.

To assist in their digitization efforts and help schools better adopt new tools, the Ministry tapped into the expertise of the Uchida Yoko Group and their subsidiary Infosign, which  identified computer-based testing (CBT) as an area of focus  to start transforming the education system in Japan.
