Assessment Resources for High Schools

May 18, 2016 Kristen Hicks

High school’s more competitive than it’s ever been before. Any way you can give your high school students an edge today will translate to better college options and better job options in their lives after school.

While funding at your school may be limited, one thing you can do immediately to improve student learning outcomes is consider an investment in ExamSoft.

Just to be clear, we know that many teachers are fed up with the implication that technology can offer some magical solution to the problems high schools face. Computer-based testing isn’t magic, but it is a tool that can help make teachers’ lives easier while empowering them with detailed information on how students are doing and the specific types of help they need most.

ExamSoft’s value isn’t hypothetical. Other high schools have already seen what it can do for teachers and students. Here’s a collection of resources we’ve put together based on their experiences.
