Pathfinder Designs Test Tracking Software for a Country's Standardized Testing Program
Source: Pathfinder Development
In an Arabic Gulf State, Pathfinder and its client, a large Research and Data Analysis firm, are helping transform the educational system. Part of the vision for the new system was the implementation of a standardized testing program administered over a four-week period at several hundred schools. To manage the logistics of this testing program, an application was needed to monitor the status and location of over a million exam and answer books. The application needed to be usable for both Arabic speakers and English speakers with varied education and experience levels. Pathfinder was brought in to create the user models and user interfaces for the application, including the user interface to a hardware bar code scanner, which was critical to achieve the needed processing bandwidth for the exams.
