Job Description:

Senior Software Developer sought by NCS Pearson, Inc., in San Antonio, TX. 40 hrs./wk. Position is involved with the design of Pearson's ABBI platform. Specifically, position is responsible for the design of the platform's content development capabilities, test administration and execution capabilities, and the security of the platform. This coding, design, and architecture work is applied to a platform called ABBI, which is used to build and manage high-stakes assessments for K-12 schools in the US. The platform supports content development, review of content by curriculum specialists, the creation of online and print tests, the set-up and review of scoring methods for test items, and the previewing of the tests with accessibility and accommodation measures in place. The ABBI system must use industry best practices to maintain security due to the sensitive nature of the content. Since these tests, administered by states (with clients like Massachusetts, Tennessee, Minnesota, Texas, the Department of Defense, the Bureau of Indian Education, etc.), are used to determine whether students can graduate high school and whether educational agencies are adhering to federal guidelines and deserving of continued funding, a large body of statistical data on the tests, piloted test questions, and student performance is maintained within ABBI. This data is used to validate tests and is occasionally challenged in the courts. Due to these high stakes, engineers and architects working on the ABBI platform are required to apply the highest standards for data integrity and traceability.
