What Scoring Vendors work with NYS schools to score tests?

There are five scoring vendors who currently work with New York State schools to score tests, including for computer-based testing. If a CBT school has a contract for CBT scoring with one of the vendors, the school will be able to select the vendor as a "Lead Scoring Entity" in the NYSED online examination request system when ordering CBT. The five vendors include the following: 

  • Educational Vistas, Inc. (Ed Vistas) (BEDS Code: 990000000011)
  • Optimum Solutions Corporation (OSC) (BEDS Code: 990000000012)
  • NY Premier Assessment Services, Inc. (BEDS Code: 990000000013)
  • Strategic Measurement and Evaluation, Inc. (SME) (BEDS Code: 990000000015)
  • Questar Assessment Inc. (BEDS 990000000014)

NYSED created BEDS Codes for the scoring vendors to ensure that CBT constructed responses are routed to the correct Lead Scoring Entity in ScorePoint.
