"We were looking for a long-term partner who would have a stake in the game. Summit has been just that. We get real leadership, responsiveness and guidance in ways to approach and improve things, in ways we hadn’t thought of."

Michael Bleyhl, VP Product Technology
The Princeton Review.


A world leader in student education, the Princeton Review had outgrown its test engine. Always looking to the future, the organization turned to Summit to integrate innovative adaptive and prescriptive testing methods that their current platform could not support.

And there was more. The Princeton Review needed a new testing platform that would integrate with their existing learning management systems. Additionally, the new system needed to be designed, developed expeditiously to integrate with new standardized testing algorithms. Time was of the essence.


Summit identified both the strategic goals of the organization as a whole, and then worked to identify the specific new platform functional needs, the legacy system (LMS) specifications and the testing requirements. From here, Summit designed, developed and deployed a custom, robust test engine in close collaboration with The Princeton Review.

The tool delivers on the original goal of authoring new item types, integrating with their essay marking system, reconciling with the different phases of the LMS, supporting new testing algorithms, and incorporating custom functionalities.

The solution includes:
•    Adaptive Selection
•    Adaptive Scoring
•    Customized interface
•    Internet based
•    Innovative Item Types
•    Comprehensive Score Report
•    Dynamic Selection

Summit’s relationship with The Princeton Review is ongoing. The scalable test engine easily evolves to meet the organizations growing needs.
