Despite the popularity of online tests, many districts and schools prefer the personal attention and affordability that paper-pencil assessments provide. The Assessment Resource Center (ARC) serves this need by offering high-quality products at a significant cost savings for school districts, along with excellent service to assist you before, during, and after administering assessments.
ARC contracts with multiple national testing companies for distribution, scoring, scanning and reporting services for several nationally normed and trusted assessments.
