Custom test development processes are expensive, require enormous vendor scale, and take as long as two years to deliver a new test, which limits a state's ability to innovate and respond to educator needs. New Meridian's hybrid strategy attacks that problem directly.
Unlimited content combinations
Reduce the cost of your assessment program by 10%-50% and cut development time in half
States must balance innovation and cost, while always ensuring the highest quality. New Meridian’s hybrid development approach helps states unlock the perfect combination of new and existing content to optimize quality, cost, and timeline.
May states have used the cost savings from New Meridian’s hybrid content model to offset custom development costs or fund other important educational programs.
