Education Revolution, LLC, creator of the Socrates Learning Platform, today announced that it has released a new Testing and Benchmarking Module that allows elementary and middle schools to automatically create, administer, grade, and compare tests to evaluate student progress throughout the year.
“Benchmarking tests are critical to school performance ratings and funding,” stated Brian G. Rosenberg, Education Revolution Chief Executive Officer. “Our new Testing and Benchmarking Module provides an easy-to-use tool to create official benchmarking tests or to reinforce skills between tests. By using Socrates as its testing solution, teachers save time creating and grading tests and can easily compare results to previous tests.”
“When speaking to teachers who used our solution in their classrooms, we noticed a significant investment in time to create and grade tests. This gave rise to our Socrates Testing and Benchmarking Module,” stated Dr. Ralph Thomas, Education Revolution President & Chief Technology Officer. “This new module allows teachers to create tests for nearly any common core standard as part of official benchmarking or for classroom testing needs. Teachers can then see student progression compared to previous tests. This new solution was designed based on teacher input to create the best possible teacher experience.”
The new Socrates Testing and Benchmarking Module provides easy-to-use functionality. Features include the ability to set tests in advance, create timed tests, provide testing instructions and teacher reminders. Questions are automatically graded as they are submitted by the student, visible to the teacher in real-time. In addition, follow-up tests can repeat the same test questions or create new questions within the same topic. Results can then be compared – question by question, student by student, and over time, to see progress and whether or where intervention is necessary.
