The purpose of this project was to inform policymakers about the state of technology assisted educational tools. The Technology Assisted Student Assessment Institute (TASA) is a research center dedicated to providing up-to-date information on programs, strategies, outcomes, best practices and policy implications for implementing new technology in K-12 schools. In this first phase of the TASA project, researchers documented international and national trends, prototypes, and evidence of technological effectiveness. This project was the first phase of a larger project that sought to identify, pilot and evaluate computer assisted assessment models.
