Contradictory directive between federal and state along with expensive investments in assessment strategies that may no longer work with new standards were just a few issues making educational assessment increasingly complicated.

With evolution of rapid changing environment following student assessment practice, policy and analysis can be tough.

This capstone project helped to build reliable and quality online solution which assisted to guard against system failures and scoring errors, and hold itself accountable for the security of the assessment process with use of cutting edge technology such as Agile in which incremental and iterative development of product through various cycles or feedback with involvement of cross functional and self-managing team helps to achieve product improvement.


I wish to express my deep sense of respect, and indebtedness to my advisor, Dr. Hiral Shah, for her valuable suggestions, and ceaseless inspiration during the project work

I would also like to thank Dr. Ben Baliga and Dr. Blasy Kasi, without their support, encouragement, and guidance this project would not have been a reality.

Last but not least, I would like to thank my husband Mahendra, my kids, my caring parents, and my friends for their inspiration, encouragements, everlasting blessing, and abundant love for me for the successful completion of this achievement.
