Executive Vice President and Director of Assessment
Next Our test development team consists of subject-matter experts, most of whom bring years of classroom experience.
Supported by state-of-the-art software, our structured and innovative approach to test development yields tests that provide clean, fair measures of what students know and can do. We offer both test development services and support for our clients who choose to develop items or tests themselves.
Next We offer Internet-based online testing using either adaptive or fixed-form tests.
Our testing engine integrates innovative, machine-scored constructed-response items with selected-response (multiple-choice) items in either adaptive or fixed tests. Working with the state of Oregon, AIR offers the only adaptive testing engine that is peer-reviewed and NCLB approved.
Next Offering a full range of paper-based testing services, from test production through scoring and reporting.
From student registration through printing, shipping, scanning and scoring, AIR uses technology to provide a fast, reliable testing experience. Powerful technologies, such as digital test printing, allow us to reduce costs and provide a more fully customized test and more reliable measurement.
Next Our multidisciplinary reporting team offers online and paper reports designed to change education.
AIR believes that reporting assessment data should go beyond simply stating how students performed on the test. Reports should help people change their behavior and inspire educators and parents to take action to improve curriculum, instruction, and student learning.
Next AIR's world-renowned psychometricians and statisticians provide uniquely reliable information from test data.
AIR's psychometricians use the most advanced sampling methods and state-of-the-art psychometric procedures to provide each of our clients with world-class information that exceeds industry standards and can be counted on to inform policy and curriculum decisions.
