DRC has extensive experience providing comprehensive data forensics and monitoring for large-scale assessment programs that can be seamlessly integrated within assessment and accountability programs. DRC adheres to test integrity standards as discussed in numerous sources such NCME’s Testing and Data Integrity in the Administration of Statewide Student Assessment Programs and CCSSO’s Operational Best Practices for Statewide Large-Scale Assessment Programs.

As the stakes for assessment have increased, DRC has invested in the development of high-quality data forensic tools and monitoring reports in support of our clients. DRC continues to research emerging and state-of-the-art detection methodologies, attends regularly at national conferences—including the Annual Statistical Detection of Potential Test Fraud Conference—and regularly tracks developments in security guidelines from NCME, the Institute of Education sciences National Center for Education Statistics, and TILSA.
