ASG will work with customers to develop the appropriate proposal cost submission worksheets. Properly structured cost worksheets are key to determining whether program requirements are understood by vendors and whether proposed programs are comparable, as well as allowing for the development of numerous program metrics essential in cost negotiations.
Assessment Program Design. ASG has developed efficient designs for the basic building blocks of assessments that are psychometrically sound, operationally efficient and provide maximum value at a low cost per student. ASG will work with the customer to implement these elements into their assessment programs.
- Quality Preparation. Nothing is more damaging to an assessment program than misprints or a scoring or reporting error. ASG will work with customers to ensure program RFPs include the appropriate quality control and assurance submission requirements.
- RFP Psychometric Section Preparation. ASG will assist the customer in developing the Psychometric section (item and test analysis, equating, scaling, score reporting) of the proposal.
- RFP Administration Review. Significant program costs are tied up in test production, editorial and manufacturing, shipping, scoring (both multiple choice and constructed response) and reporting. ASG works with clients to ensure appropriate quality steps are built into the proposal for these areas.
ASG will assist states with all aspects of preparing the Technical and Cost Sections of the RFP.
