Pearson had always load tested, but as stress on its Schoolnet platform grew, it turned to SOASTA for a solution that could scale more cost-effectively.

Challenge

  • With the implementation of Common Core in 2010, school districts needed a faster, easier and more cost effective way to implement student assessments and reporting
  • This created a growing need for reliable, web-based standardized testing
  • Pearson had a long relationship with another testing tool, but became increasingly unhappy with the expense, lack of timely response and limited solutions to its new testing

Solution

  • CloudTest
  • Services

Result

  • Served hundreds of thousands of simultaneous users
  • Save $100,000 in incremental testing costs
  • Read case study
