Founded on the premise of helping every student reach his or her potential, Uwezo believes that the key to achieving this goal is frequent, meaningful testing. But we are also keenly aware that most kids - not all - are averse to testing in general. So how do we reconcile these two divergent goals?
At Uwezo we have two types of tests: standard, group tests that are given in the classroom or online using our App Uachieve™. These tests ensure that a student has a base level understanding of the subject. The other option of testing involves dynamically created tests, by topic and difficulty level. The standard tests are prepared by the teachers while keeping the Board exam in mind. Dynamic Tests, on the other hand, allow a student to test himself or herself in a customized manner.

for more on Dynamic Testing. In both kinds of testing environment, every question has a clear and easy to understand explanation, which a student can review any time. Of course, he or she can go back to any past test and review as often as required. If necessary, they can seek remedial help from the teacher, as well.
Student Progress Reports
For each subject, a parent or student will have access to progress reports in Uachieve™. In addition to individual scores, the report includes percentile information also to give one an idea of comparative performance.
Uachieve™ has another feature that is quite unique: the ability for a student to generate tests on demand, by topic and difficulty level. These tests are confidential and are visible, along with the scores, only to that student. Each test is automatically graded Uachieve™ and every question comes with a complete explanation with pointers to more information and resources. This allows each child to learn at their own pace and level while maintaining privacy - important to some of them.
Predictable Results: It's not magic, just Uachieve™
This constant cycle of test, review and remedy ensures that each and every student can reach his or her true potential. The dynamic testing aspect of Uachieve™ assures that students can take as many tests as they wish to, at the time and difficulty level of their choice.
