Custom Test Development

In addition to our assessment products, Pearson’s Knowledge Technologies group offers custom testing solutions for assessing: reading, writing, speaking, listening—and now math skills. No matter your scale or your need, we can provide you with a cost-effective assessment that saves you time and resources.

Visionary Technologies

Autoscored reading and writing solutions are based on Pearson's unique implementation of Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA). This groundbreaking language modeling process offers an easy, flexible tool for improving critical reading and writing skills.

Leading the Discussion

Our patented Versant tests are the first to leverage a completely automated method for testing spoken language. Based on years of research in speech recognition, statistical modeling, linguistics, and testing theory, our tests provide a flexible, reliable solution for large-scale language assessment. Versant tests can be taken anytime, anywhere, in a matter of minutes at a lower cost than traditional methods.

Retracing Students' Steps

We have recently added an automated criterion-based grading engine for constructed-response mathematics. Applied to grading in assessment or instructional settings, it enables partial-credit scoring, provides detailed analysis and reporting of a student's work, and delivers appropriate corrective feedback to the student.
