Pearson’s Assessment & Information group has launched www.PearsonAssessments.com/NextGenRoadmap, an open, online Wiki intended to engage and encourage input from professionals and organizations who are addressing the challenge of moving from paper-and-pencil to online assessments.

The site, www.PearsonAssessments.com/NextGenRoadmap, offers links to helpful resources and is currently populated with five recommended steps for a successful transition, as well as a case study of Pearson’s work with Virginia, which began shifting to online assessments in 2001, and is now testing over 95% of high school students online.
