Scantron to distribute student response system

GlobalScholar today announced that its Scantron brand has entered into a distribution agreement with Turning Technologies. In early 2012, Scantron will begin reselling Turning’s student response system, initially offering it to the K-12 market with Scantron’s own comprehensive educational assessment solution.

Turning Technologies’ software allows teachers to ask students interactive formative assessment questions or summative self-paced assessment items. Students respond using ResponseCard® keypads (“clickers”); the responses are immediately gathered and displayed either in formative assessment group settings or privately to the teacher during more formal testing.
