MI employs more than 35 full-time professional software developers and data analysts to design, develop, test, and maintain custom score reporting applications for our clients. We can accommodate simple custom reporting tasks to multivariate analyses involving many large data sets, modify an existing reporting system, or design and develop an entire customized suite of reporting applications. Typical tools used include Crystal Reports, Microsoft .NET, and SQL Server.
We can deliver results of large-scale student assessments via secure electronic transmission of data to the location of the client’s choice or by producing reports in-house using a variety of high-speed linotronic and laser printers. We maintain over a dozen printers that each produce between 50 and 135 pages per minute, most of which have duplex printing capabilities. They’re commonly used to produce class rosters, student barcode labels, individual score reports, and summary reports by class, school, and district.
MI incorporates stringent security procedures to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of student information and test results. Secure transmission of data is accomplished with industry standard solutions such as SSL, SFTP, and VPN tunnels, and data is archived to off-site locations through the use of real-time snap shots, replication, NDMP, and traditional tape backup techniques.
