Paper Testing and Processing
AIR offers a full range of paper-based testing and processing service, from test production through scanning, scoring and reporting. All are designed for accuracy, efficiency and security.
AIR's Test Information Distribution Engine (TIDE) provides an easy-to-use system for managing information for both paper-based and online assessments.
Using TIDE, test coordinators (TCs) can manage student information and order test materials. State-level users can oversee TC activity and approve or deny order requests.
AIR's digital print systems provide great flexibility in test book production.
AIR uses digital print technologies to streamline the test materials review and approval process and to provide the ability to personalize test forms.
AIRs ReturnDocs system tracks all materials expected back as well as those already received.
ReturnDocs tracks returned shipments by school and/or district and creates detailed missing materials reports for each entity.
AIR's high-speed scanners allow for quick and accurate turnaround on any project. View video of the scanner in action
Each of AIR's scanners can capture up to 30,000 images per hour. Each scanner feeds images into multiple software processes that assign scores to every bubble.
All images are fed into AIR's image-based CR scoring system to be read by highly trained scorers.
AIR's trained and certified scorers work in teams to apply rubric-based scores to each item they encounter. Secure access allows our clients and partners to monitor progress and quality in real time.
