Enables Fast, Accurate Scoring
Built out of the need to provide a flexible solution to accurately and efficiently evaluate performance assessment items
Constructed-response item types are increasingly considered a better measure of critical thinking and analytical skills – often referred to as higher-order thinking. The increased adoption of these new “Second-Generation Assessments” have called attention to the need for an accurate, efficient and cost-effective tool to score these innovative item types.
MZ Dev developed OSCAR, a state-of-the-art, next-generation platform for online scoring and reporting that boasts a set of features to accommodate a variety of performance scoring requirements, while still achieving the primary goal of providing an accurate, simple, affordable solution.
Comprehensive performance scoring functionality that is easy to use and increases accuracy and efficiency
Gone are the days of complex or coupled system configurations, cumbersome administrative oversight and set-up and expensive contractual obligations.
OSCAR is built from the ground-up to accommodate the increasing demand for online, distributed performance scoring. It’s lightweight and highly scalable and designed to accommodate everything from the most basic scoring requirements, to complex, multi-dimensional scoring rules.
Watching the transformation of OSCAR over the last two years while utilizing input and functionality feedback from GCA scoring teams has been dynamic. Collaboration between GCA and MZ Dev has provided our Scoring and Reporting unit the opportunity to streamline processes resulting in expedited results to customers.
