Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — With the adoption of software solutions everywhere many aspects of our lives are moving online. Although teachers in the classroom embraced technology early on, the vast majority of educational assessments are still happening on paper requiring intensive manual labor for grading by teachers. Until recently limitations in technology and its availability made online testing too challenging for most classrooms. However, nowadays students are showing up at school with mobile devices and institutions are purchasing or being gifted technology suites of tablets and laptops more than ever. This tidal wave of technology makes it possible to disrupt the paper-based testing paradigm and enables Terascore to free teachers from having to grade papers and manage performance data manually.
Critical feedback from active users of the Terascore beta program earlier this year has resulted in significant impact on teacher workflow in the new product being released today. Clearly stepping away from the mindset that more is better, Terascore’s new “test address” concept has greatly simplified the process of creating and running online assessments for both teachers and participating students.
Teachers already using Terascore are unanimous in their appreciation of easy online testing. ”Terascore is changing the way tests are created and taken. It's all online with instant real time results!” said Mr. Zachary Reinhold, history teacher in a charter school in Fresno, CA.
Equally exciting is that the latest Terascore app available now can provide a new level of test security when needed. The app restricts the test takers’ device to only the test being administered. This feature prevents students from seeking other sources to search for answers meaning that high stakes testing just got easier!
