What Are the Benefits?
Because TAO is Open Source, there are no annual license fees or recurring test delivery fees. Developed by a team of leading software engineers, TAO is regularly updated with new features, usability enhancements and under-the-hood improvements. All to ensure your assessments will always be state-of-the-art.
Open Source also means flexibility. Our APIs allow you to easily integrate existing assets – so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Protect your investment with an open, standards-based solution that puts you in control.
TAO covers the full range of testing functionality out-of-the-box: from item creation, to test delivery, to results analysis. But there’s more: adding your own modules or customizing TAO’s existing ones means the ultimate in flexibility. And that your cost of ownership stays nice and low.
With TAO you can create tests using the broadest range of interactions, from simple multiple-choice to advanced simulations. And because TAO is fully QTI compliant, your content is portable and interoperable, thus overcoming proprietary barriers and helping you reduce cost.
TAO is Open Source and completely customizable. So say goodbye to proprietary red tape. With TAO, you are free to do your own customization, and get functionality that fits like a glove.
