A Complete Assessment Application Suite for States, School Districts, & Third-Party Testing Vendors
Interactive Testing Evolved
Mac, PC, iPad, Chromebook? No problem. In the Kite Suite, educators and students can access their customized testing portal on whichever device suits their individual needs.
The Kite Suite is comprised of Kite Student Portal, which students use to take tests; Kite Educator Portal, which educators use to manage students and administer tests; a technology-enhanced item editor for building TE items; and Content Builder, for banking items.
Educators can tailor their students’ curriculum and testing preferences easily and intuitively. Large-scale assessments are delivered as seamlessly as small interim assessments. Kite Suite supports a variety of item types, including multiple choice, multiple select, drag and drop, graphing, constructed response, and selected response.
Kite Student Portal provides students with a simple interface featuring intuitive navigation and graphics. Students access the Student Portal through a customized and secured version of a leading open-source web browser, which prevents them from accessing unauthorized content or software while taking assessments. This system adapts to each student’s unique learning and testing process, using an accessible approach and a variety of helpful tools.
Every student deserves the opportunity to achieve his or her learning potential. Kite Educator Portal equips students with a Personal Needs & Preferences Profile, which educators can adjust to fit students’ individual needs.

Learning is not a linear process – students take many different paths to learn new skills and concepts. So why should we measure progress on a straight line? With Kite Suite, you don’t have to.
With formative assessment materials that help teachers make in-the-moment instructional adjustments, easily customizable interim mini-tests for helping teachers assess students’ unique progress through the year, and fully adaptive summative assessments that adjust their difficulty to match students’ performance in real time, Kite Suite is built to measure students’ progress in whatever shape it may come.
Building Better Testing
Kite Suite’s item-banking solution, Content Builder, provides all the essential features for content development in educational assessments.
Content Builder supports cross-platform, technology-enhanced items and provides the ability to tag tasks and media for accessibility based on Accessible Portable Item Protocol (APIP) and Question and Test Interoperability (QTI) standards.
