Instructional time is precious. Here’s how OnCourse makes sure testing time is worth it.

High-quality assessment is an important complement to great instruction, but getting testing right isn’t easy. This is what OnCourse Assessment does best; improving the alignment and relevance of every test. Expert-level assessment tasks become easy, like blueprinting standards, authoring tech-enhanced items, and quality-checking the correlation of your results.


But even terrific tests are a waste of time if data isn’t being used effectively. Stop asking staff to interpret spreadsheets and use OnCourse’s dynamic data dashboards to uncover the best places to improve instruction and curriculum.

How OnCourse Makes Your Assessments Better

Grow beyond multiple choice.

OnCourse helps you design assessments worthy of a modern classroom. Create items from 70+ different technology-enhanced item templates that encourage students to think critically as they demonstrate their knowledge.

Make connections that were never before possible.

Something magical happens when OnCourse is your single source of truth, for student grades and attendance, online assessments, and imported scores from state and third-party tests.

You unlock the holy grail of precision; the Multiple Measures view of student performance. Your most elusive questions suddenly have answers: are students growing equitably? Which of our assessments is best correlated to performance on summatives? Your power to impact change increases dramatically.

“OnCourse allows the school district to pass down checkpoint assessments... These allow students and teachers to compare mastery not only within the school but the whole district.
