Beta Testing

Thank you for your interest in testing the FIRST Assessment Database. The development team continues to work on building the database and user interface.

We need faculty members to participate at several levels to test the database. You can volunteer for as many or few roles as you have time for. A summary of our needs:

  1. Beta-testing of the user interface
    • When ready for testing, this page will contain links to download the software and instructions for testing.
  2. Seeding the database
    • We will need assessments and related student data from many different instructors and courses to test the functionality of the database.
  3. Using the database when completed
    • Ultimately, we need faculty to adopt the FIRST Assessment Database and promote its use with faculty at their home institution and professional societies.

If interested in assisting with any of these, please contact Mark Urban-Lurain (
