SoluSoft is a provider of customized assessments. We work closely with our education partners who, in turn, collaborate with state departments of education (DOE) or school consortia staff, school administrators, teachers, and college and university faculty to design all aspects of assessment tools. SoluSoft was among the first companies to develop a scanning and scoring system for digitally scanning assessment test papers and electronically scoring open-response, writing, and performance items. Our partners utilize our solution in more than 30 states throughout the US.
Some features include scanning a bulk of assessment papers, digitally scoring the scanned assessment papers either using our advanced optical mark system to electronically recognize marked bubbles on multiple-choice answer sheets or presenting scanned images to trained scorers for scoring open responses, and generating reports.
Our i3Capture and Forms Processor systems are utilized to capture test booklets that are returned after administered and completed testing to our partners for scoring. The i3Capture system electronically captures students' responses to generate scanned images. The Forms Processor's Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) technology captures the marked bubbles. The OMR data set is then released to the Data Processing (DP) department for further processing. The image data set is released to our scoring subsystem for scoring. Once the scoring is completed, the scored data is released to Data Processing where both the OMR data set and the score are merged. This data is further processed by the DP department to generate reports, which are then sent to either DOE or school districts.

The oKTest system (online Knowledge Test) is a Computer-Based Testing (CBT) online classroom-ready assessment system. It was developed to administer formative assessments for private and state local education agencies, including hundreds of districts and thousands of students in each state. As there will be a wide variety of infrastructure, technical capacity, and support capabilities in these organizations, the deployment model for the oKTest system includes options such as a) license to own, b) leasing for a fixed time with the option to renew, and c) utilizing iCloudTest to host testing in the cloud.
The objective of the formative assessment system over the course of the year is to provide school teachers/educators with the ability to create richly formatted tests, conduct in-depth analysis of how students learn, and gather useful findings/feedback for changes that benefit both teachers and students. The findings/feedback will be obtained through teacher observation, classroom discussion, and analysis of student work, including homework and tests. Furthermore, this will adapt teaching and learning by making necessary instructional adjustments, such as re-teaching, trying alternative instructional approaches, and offering more opportunities for practice in order to achieve learning goals and standards for students. It can be used by teachers to measure student knowledge relative to state and national standards.
The oKTest Solution will cover the complete testing life cycle, from item creation to test construction, test administration, and test reporting for formative assessments
