A unique time in history...

Children today grow up familiar with technology through computer games, cell phones, and DVDs. Educators who do not make use of technology for instruction and assessment will find themselves increasingly disadvantaged in engaging their students' attention and imagination.

Years ago, ALTSTM founders realized that the power of technology, specifically custom software technology, could be used to revolutionize assessment in ways never before utilized. Thus began development of the ALTSTM Assessment Management SystemTMsoftware.

The ALTSTM Assessment Management SystemTM software was created to empower teachers, trainers and professors to develop accurate assessments - formative and summative - bringing tremendous benefits to learners, educators, schools, corporations and universities. Through its Assessment Management System software, ALTS delivers a reliable and scalable package of test development tools that can be used in classrooms around the world at an extremely affordable price.

Item Banking

The ALTS AMSTM has the capability of providing question writing and item banking services that empower item writers to document the source of each question and each answer, and align each question with a target standard. Each item writer has an account and item writers can collaborate. This module is likely to be useful when organizations want to develop item banks.


Test Development

ALTS also provides a test development module in which a table of specifications could be created and used to assemble an assessment from questions that have already been reviewed, approved and stored in the item bank. This module makes the cumbersome test assembly, test review and documentation process manageable.


Computer-based Testing

For companies that want to deliver assessments online, ALTS provides an easy to use assessment delivery option. In three simple steps, the test administrator could find the test, find the sample of students to whom the test should be given and give the test. This simple three step process allows the test administrator to be in total control of when tests are given. In addition, the test administrator could pause and resume the test at his or her convenience. While an assessment is in progress the test administrator has access to a dashboard that allows him or her to monitor student progress and performance in real time. Unusual test taking behaviors can be flagged and investigated by the test administrator.


Reporting

At the end of a test taking session data could be immediately analyzed. At the press of a button (the “process stats” button) the test administrator could get immediate information about test reliability, item difficulty and student performance.
