Wiki seeks educator views about online testing

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.

All stakeholders are encouraged to contribute—whether it be by adding, changing or deleting content—including state and district level staff involved in transitions and independent organizations who share a commitment to helping states.
