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.
PeeDee Math, Science, and Technology Academy (PDMSTA) describes itself as a school that “implements a strategic educational program that teaches students through an innovative curriculum.”
When PDMSTA Director Keith Bailey recognized that the best strategy to strengthen student behavior, respect and responsibility was by doubling down on their social and emotional learning curriculum, he made the difficult but important decision to allocate his very limited personnel budget to this priority, staffing out a new Director of SEL position, occupied now by an experienced outdoor and experiential educator, Aimee Cox-King.
Then, at the ASCD Annual Conference, Keith set out to find an assessment system for his SEL initiatives. He was targeting a system that could inform their school-wide priorities, provide valid and reliable information about their individual students, and deliver them resources for enhancing SEL instruction and programming. He found and selected ProExam Tessera as his complete solution to meet those needs.
IOWA CITY, February 22, 2017 – IOWA—ACT, Inc., a national leader in college and career readiness assessment, announced today it intends to invest in ProExam, a not-for-profit organization focused on noncognitive assessment and professional credentialing, with a merger between the two organizations expected in 2018.
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.
