AIR is partnering with the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, a state-led consortium committed to developing tests that use technology to better measure student knowledge and to make tests accessible to all. The Smarter Balanced tests will be delivered online and include innovative items and performance tasks that take advantage of the potential of technology.
Student Assessment Services
Providing robust and unique tools to plan, test, score, evaluate and report on student learning, AIR gives teachers information to help students achieve, and oversight agencies the material they need to evaluate school system performance. Student assessment measures the knowledge, skills and aptitudes of students to help students learn, teachers teach, and parents know what is happening at school.
Today’s state-of-the-art assessments in education include customized, criterion-referenced assessment programs, online adaptive tests, and alternative assessments. More information about the full range of AIR's assessment services is provided on the AIR Assessment program page.
