Skyward Launches Test Bank Management Tool

Skyward has debuted the Test Bank Management Solution, designed to help districts manage their own test banks, collaborate with other Skyward customers and integrate test bank providers.

"Test banks provide flexibility to create custom assessments at the district, school and classroom level," according to a news release. "Educators can easily select questions that most appropriately reflect curriculum, student population and time of year the test is given. Questions created through Skyward's Test Bank Management Solution align with state and Common Core State Standards for analytical reporting, and allow districts to secure those questions to only be used on summative assessments."

The solution will support integration with test banks supporting the Question and Test Interoperability (QTI) format.

"The Skyward Test Bank Management Solution lets educators connect about assessments in an innovative and efficient way," said Ray Ackerlund, vice president of marketing and product management at Skyward, in a prepared statement. "Districts will be able to create their own test bank, and safely share assessments with their entire staff, as well as districts across the state and country."

The Test Bank Management Solution will launch in July.
