Case studies

Assessment Item Development

We produced more than 4,000 items designed to assess reading comprehension, information location skills, and mathematics literacy for a single adult-education client. Items were written using real-world career situations and passages, derived from 16 different career types. Using client-provided templates, our team provided all subject matter expertise, item writing, copyediting, and proofreading services.

Online Course Design

We produced five full-length online courses for a major publisher aimed at the adult-learning market. The courses were designed to expose adult learners to new career possibilities and used content from the publisher’s existing libraries on the subject areas. Our team provided subject matter expertise, new content development, item writing, copyediting, interactive activity development, and proofreading services. Subject areas included health care, business, information technology, and manufacturing.
