TrustedQA was engaged for the 6th consecutive time to provide the American Institutes for Research (AIR) with a team of engineers to test their Smarter Balanced Student Assessment system, which is a next-generation assessment system aligned to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts/Literacy (ELA/Literacy) and Mathematics for grades 3-8 and 11. It uses computer adaptive testing technologies to the greatest extent possible to provide meaningful feedback and actionable data that teachers and other educators can use to help students succeed.
As a result of TQA’s efforts, the Smarter Balanced application has far fewer user-facing issues due to the defect identification and their subsequent remediation. Our engineers conduct platform validation, test case validation, defect management, cross-platform verification, and retesting during our engagements. Over the 5 previous testing iterations, TQA’s platform (OS/Browser) coverage has been as high as 98% with more than 700,000 executed test cases and identification and correction of over 1,000 unique defects.
“TQA is truly our “go-to” vendor for immediate staffing needs. We know when we reach out to them, they are able to provide highly qualified staff that can meet both our short and long term program needs. They have been supporting our current contract for over 9 years and have always provided great support.”
“The TQA technical team has provided support as expected. Their employees are qualified, perform productive work quickly, and have shown a wealth of knowledge and experience. Many come with skills that are difficult to find/fill. We have been extremely happy with the candidates that have come from TrustedQA.”
“TrustedQA has consistently provided our clinical trials support division with excellent technical staff over the years. They are one of our trusted partners.”
“TrustedQA continues providing excellent testing resources who quickly exceed expectations in the GCCS-J Agile software development and test environment. Would recommend them to a team looking to augment staff with consistently high quality software testing support staff.”
“TQA is the top performing vendor on my program in terms of responsiveness, quality, attention to detail and following process. We intend to include them on our upcoming recompete of the current contract based on their sustained superior performance.”
“Their approach is really great as they focus on those hybrid outside the box critical thinker testers who can perform all types of testing, hence the word “hybrid” where testers also have a situational approach to testing, not just “checkers” but overall contributors to quality.”
“Concur continuously uses TrustedQA to source ‘Quality’ candidates. Over the years we’ve been impressed at the personal attention TQA offers us; in particular to understand our business challenges so that only the top talent that meets our needs is sourced.”
