The Kansas Computerized Assessment system (KCA) meets the requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind act (NCLB). The project provides an online testing interface for students in addition to online training tools, tutorials, and practice tests for both student and teachers. In 2006, the system delivered 2.7 million computer-based statewide NCLB assessments across multiple states. This project is a browser-based adaptation of the current java client.

User-Centered Design Process
The project uses a user-centered design approach with project wiki+blog that facilitates project communication, documents major design decisions, and explores proposed features with task analyses, scenarios, key path scenarios, prototypes, and storyboards. Universal Design methods examine the task, environment, and needs of each user with personas, surveys, use logging, and informal testing.
