|Are You Ready to Make the Move to Online Testing?
Make a Seamless Transition with VMware Horizon View
As K-12 school districts nationwide are preparing to transition to online testing, they face many obstacles including: budgets and resource constraints, aging IT infrastructure, and security concerns. Some school districts have leveraged VMware Horizon View to make this transition, seamlessly, despite these barriers. This webcast will shed some light on key issues and best practices, and we will discuss how to meet the looming mandates issued by the Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI).
Join us for this complimentary webcast where we’ll discuss:
- An overview of the Common Core State Standards Initiative and challenges faced when implementing online testing
- How VMware Horizon View can deliver Pearson TestNav tests to address these challenges
- Feedback from existing customers who have deployed Pearson TestNav with VMware Horizon View
These next generation assessments mandated by CCSSI will be computer-based and many will leverage Pearson TestNav – the mandated testing provider in several states that delivers over 15 million tests per year. In fact, the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), a consortium of 20 states, awarded Pearson and Educational Testing Service (ETS) the contract to develop test items that will be part of the new English and mathematics assessments.
VMware’s Horizon View desktop virtualization solution has received “TestNav Qualified” certification from Pearson, ensuring that TestNav tests administered using Horizon View are delivered securely, error-free, and with a good user experience. Horizon View with Pearson TestNav combines state-of-the-art technologies from two industry leaders to meet next-generation testing requirements, delivering large-scale online tests to distributed desktops in a cost-effective manner without disrupting existing IT infrastructure.
