AIR Assessment offers a full range of assessment services, collaborating with our state and district clients to develop and deploy customized, criterion-referenced assessment programs to help students learn, teachers teach, and parents know what is happening at school.
Supported by state-of-the-art software, our structured and innovative approach to test development yields tests that provide clean, fair measures of what students know and can do. We offer both test development services and support for our clients who choose to develop items or tests themselves.
Our testing engine integrates innovative, machine-scored constructed-response items with selected-response (multiple-choice) items in either adaptive or fixed tests. Working with the state of Oregon, AIR offers the only adaptive testing engine that is peer-reviewed and NCLB approved.
From student registration through printing, shipping, scanning and scoring, AIR uses technology to provide a fast, reliable testing experience. Powerful technologies, such as digital test printing, allow us to reduce costs and provide a more fully customized test and more reliable measurement.
AIR believes that reporting assessment data should go beyond simply stating how students performed on the test. Reports should help people change their behavior and inspire educators and parents to take action to improve curriculum, instruction, and student learning.
AIR's psychometricians use the most advanced sampling methods and state-of-the-art psychometric procedures to provide each of our clients with world-class information that exceeds industry standards and can be counted on to inform policy and curriculum decisions.
