Several New York State school districts have begun using a new on-site electronic scoring system as part of their Grades 3-8 standardized test programs. The Educational Assessment Scoring Environment (EASE System™) was developed by the Education Division of Optimum Solutions Corporation.

Throughout May and June the EASE System was used by the Yonkers School District, the Nassau and Eastern Suffolk BOCES, and the New York City Charter Schools for the grading of the New York State Grades 3-8 ELA and Mathematics and the Grade 8 Social Studies assessment tests. These schools became the first in the state to use any form of electronic scoring system in standardized testing programs.
