Technology for University Teams
FastBridge Research Labs’ university teams need a secure, online platform that connects researchers at multiple locations across the country. FAST provides a dedicated environment to conduct research, prototype new capabilities, and field test new assessments in real-world classroom situations. It also provides a central, integrated data warehouse to store research data for easy extraction and analysis.

Technology for schools and districts
FAST provides schools and districts an online environment to test emerging new assessments with their own students and their own data. They can provide feedback on emerging “Lab” assessments to help ensure real-world feedback is incorporated before the assessments are fully incorporated into FAST. This is a unique approach to involving educators and students to provide real-world input into assessments before publishing to ensure they directly meet all needs.
