Welcome to Ada, the next-generation assessment ecosystem from Assessment Systems Corporation (aka Assess or ASC), designed to make it easier to develop high-quality assessments that utilize best practices and align to international standards such as NCCA/ANSI or AERA/APA/NCME. It is designed by and for assessment professionals and psychometricians with the goal of empowering more organizations to deploy defensible assessments based on sound psychometrics. Extensive effort has gone into developing an intuitive and easy-to-use interface, accessible to everyone (e.g., classroom teachers, professional development staff, experienced psychometricians).
Ada is an enterprise-scale ecosystem that is designed to manage all aspects of the assessment process. It is separated into a number of modules that correspond to major steps in the process (e.g., item authoring/review vs. test scheduling vs. reporting).
