Developing standards-based, criterion-referenced tests requires close collaboration among knowledgeable test developers, state curriculum experts, and teachers. AIR brings the staff and infrastructure to ensure structured reviews that capture every voice in the process.
AIR's test developers and computer scientists are developing new ways to measure higher level skills on online tests.
Collaborations among mathematicians, content experts and computer scientists yield new ways to assess students' ability to apply knowledge on computerized tests. AIR's patent-pending model supports rich, diverse and innovative types of items that cost no more than traditional items to develop.
AIR's Item Tracking System (ITS) helps people work together so that students see only fair, clear, and accurate tests.
ITS automates every part of the test development process except the creative spark that ignites the items. Every stage of the process, from inception to analysis and reporting, flows through this central repository, ensuring flawless items whether we develop them ourselves or use existing items.
