An online test should work with technology already in schools, and be intuitive to use, cost-effective, and more powerful than a paper test. Working together, our test developers, computer scientists and statisticians have designed a test delivery system that offers innovative, machine-scored items on fixed and adaptive forms.
Our system gathers evidence about specific student skills and knowledge by requiring students to take a more hands-on approach to test questions and by examining the characteristics of student responses.

At AIR, our online test system has been designed to be fully accessible to all students. No existing system is more accessible than ours, and our system has been proven repeatedly in real statewide accountability tests.
Our standards-based adaptive testing algorithm ensures that every student is tested on the full breadth and depth of content standards even while it adapts test item difficulty to student skill level.
Our registration system manages student and user information, establishes user roles and responsibilities, assigns students to online or paper tests and allowable accommodations prior to testing, and integrates securely with our online testing and reporting systems.
Our implementation and deployment support helps educators understand every aspect of an online assessment program and use the system effectively.
