TESTING SOLUTIONS that make the grade

Ricoh Testing and Grading Solution for Education

In K–12 districts and colleges around the country, educators face complex challenges—including shrinking budgets and growing pressure to meet government-mandated standards. Many schools are rising to these challenges by introducing more and more sophisticated, technology into classrooms and administrative offices.

But if your organization is like many, testing is one area where you may be relying on yesterday’s technology.

For years, many schools have been using the same system to produce and score tests. This solution requires proprietary equipment and forms that result in unnecessary costs. It limits educators’ flexibility in tailoring test structure and content to match students’ needs. And it lacks analytics capabilities—so it’s time consuming and difficult for teachers to identify trends and patterns across students and classes.

Ricoh Testing and Grading Solution for Education offer a more robust, flexible and cost-efficient approach to creating, scoring and analyzing student exams. It combines powerful software with Ricoh multi-function devices—enabling you to increase speed and agility while driving down costs. It makes it easier for teachers to quickly and effectively analyze test results. In some cases, it can even automate integration of test results into your student information system.
