USE OUR NEXT-GENERATION K–12 ASSESSMENT TOOL FOR NONCOGNITIVE SKILLS
See how our robust Tessera™ solution moves beyond self-reporting to accurately measure students’ character strengths.
“Clamoring! My students were clamoring for their Tessera results. Immediately after they took the assessment they asked how soon they could get their results, and they bugged me frequently about when they would become available.”
So says Eve Rifkin, the Director of College Access at a high school serving a demographically representative student population in downtown Tucson, Arizona. She teaches a required and universal college and career readiness class to seniors every year, and this year is excited to be using Tessera as an important part of her program.
Why? Rifkin explains that students tell her that they were seeking the affirmation that positive results might provide them, affirmation of strengths they believe they have and will be pleased to see confirmed. But more than that, they are eager for feedback and greater self-awareness of who they are as persons, as opposed to how high they achieve in mathematics and reading. “This is such a contrast to what they are used to; this is about who they are as humans.”
It is with deepest regret that we inform you of the death of our dear friend and colleague, Martin Brutosky, who passed away suddenly this past weekend. Martin was more than a successful education technology entrepreneur. He was one of the most decent, caring individuals we've had the pleasure of knowing. Our industry has lost a true innovator and he will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Dianne, his family and friends.
We are most fortunate to have John Greene, Martin’s former business partner, on our team to help ProExam fill the enormous void left by Martin’s passing.
