Scantron, ENI Partner for Assessment Solutions
4/2/2007—Scantron has launched into a partnership with Evans Newton Inc. (ENI) to develop new solutions for assessments and standards-based instruction. ENI is a developer of state-specific assessments.
Through the partnership, K-12 school districts will be able to implement ENI's assessments through the Scantron Achievement Series, a Web-based platform for administering tests and producing reports based on standards.
In addition to this, ENI will expand its offerings to include both the Scantron Achievement Series and the Scantron Performance Series. The Performance Series is a Web-based "computer adaptive diagnostic testing system used to measure student placement and progress." Both ENI and Scantron will offer the two systems in conjunction with ENI's professional development workshops, which, according to the two companies, "support key areas of No Child Left Behind Act accountability with topics such as test creation, data analysis, standards-based teaching, and instructional leadership."
