In 2016-2017, we tested 500K students simultaneously; In 2017-2018, we tested 758K students simultaneously and 860K students simultaneously in 2018-2019.
Our geographically distributed Test Delivery System can infinitely scale and is equipped to handle anticipated volumes from the states we support. At the same time speed is important and each database call averages just 1/10 of a second.
Administered Large Volumes of Tests

- Include summative, interim, alternate, and English language proficiency assessments
- Are mostly adaptive
- Target the entire student population
- Engage students meaningfully without requiring a lot of their time
