NEW YORK– Feb. 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 Pearson’s 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.

The ACT Aspire assessments will be available on iPad by spring 2015.
