Intuitive online student assessments
Measured Progress is an industry leader in the development of customised, K-12 student assessments for schools, districts, and states; writing tests, scoring them, and in many cases delivering them online. Their flagship product, developed using Agile methods in a hybrid delivery model with ThoughtWorks Brazil, features a world class user interface.
With the rising use of online resources in classrooms, Measured Progress recognised the need to build a next generation, balanced student assessment platform. Measured Progress CIO Thomas Squeo was hired to drive strategic initiatives and enhance collaboration of the company’s business and technology divisions. The game-changing nature of this new online assessment platform, named Nimble Item Banking, led Mr. Squeo to partner with ThoughtWorks, having experienced ThoughtWorks’ delivery track record at a previous organization. He also wanted ThoughtWorks to bring in its best-in-class Agile practices and techniques to unleash a collaborative way of working and delivering software.
