New York (PRWEB) February 26, 2014
Pearson today announced that TestNav 8, its delivery platform for online testing, is available on the App Store. Now many schools transforming education with iPad can implement new computer-based assessments with Pearsons TestNav 8 app.
While meeting and maintaining the most stringent security requirements of high-stakes, large-scale assessment programs, TestNav delivers more than 12 million tests annually. This spring, with Pearsons app, districts where students will take the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) field test assessments and the Colorado Measures of Academic Success: Science and Social Studies (CMAS) can choose to deliver the test on iPad. The ACT Aspire assessments will be available on iPad by spring 2015.
Pearson is committed to ensuring that all students have access to powerful digital learning tools for accelerating achievement at every point in the learning cycle, said Douglas Kubach, president, Pearsons School group. In preparation for the new online assessments that many schools are undertaking this spring, it is critical that Pearsons online test delivery system runs effectively on the wide range of technology devices.
