I love this app - had it one day and already using interactive curve to convert standard scores to percentiles, and will definitely use the age calculator, stopwatch and timer. Just a suggestion - could add a normal calculator for calculating reading and writing speeds. A great free app.

As a Special Needs Support Teacher for a large Local Authority; part of my role involves conducting a range of standardised tests on a daily basis. These tests are an essential part of our role and provide us with valuable information on pupils levels of achievement and abilities across a range of different subject areas.
Key to conducting the tests is completing the pupil's data accurately, particularly the pupil's age in years, months and days; this can often be time consuming to calculate accurately as well as often contacting the school Office or Business Manager to verify the calculations.
Using the Pearson Assessment App, particularly the age calculator has certainly had a positive impact on my practice by making age/test calculations much quicker and easier to calculate and also gives practitioners peace of mind knowing the calculations are highly precise to record on pupil's SEN records and Local Authority reports which are shared with other agencies including Parents.
The stopwatch, timer and calculator all in one place are also very useful additions to the App which I have used daily alongside the age calculator.
The Pearson App has been shared across my SEN team and is now used by a range of SEN teachers in our Service with great success.

Brilliant app. All the 'bits' I need in one place. Great help. Thank you

Great app, I will be making sure the rest of the team know about it.
The interactive normal curve is really useful would be great if you could put in the smaller scores from subtests and get it to calculate the percentile ranks for them too.

What a great little time saver this is – the Assessment Assistant is easy to download and very user friendly. I particularly like the chronological age calculator – no more trying to work out the student’s age and puzzling over the years and months!’

I LOVE it! I had spent 1.5 hours before the conference trying to graph some z scores for a Head Teacher - if I’d known about the app it would have taken 1.5 minutes!
Helen Claus, Teacher in the Netherlands, May 20, 2014
In my SENCO life, this is the most exciting app ever - We'll done Pearson!
Victoria Rodgers, SENCO, May 20, 2014
I really enjoy using this app, and find it very functional and useful. One suggestion would be to add the ability to see "adjusted age" for children born prematurely, within the age calculator. Thank you.

Great little app for you guys doing SEND assessments. Use the Pearson Assistant from @PsychCorpUK. Promised a mention after BDA conference.
@tha_mi_tidsear, October 27, 2014
Love, love, love this app but can we have an Extra Time calculator on it please?
Barney Angliss, SENCO, December 4, 2014
I find the Pearson Assistant App is most useful when you are out and about working in a school or elsewhere off site. It gives easy access to information you might need from the Pearson website, and is a really efficient way of making a quick check on the various topics that you might want to discuss with staff. It also provides easy checks for age calculations, year groups and - most usefully - exploring implications of scores via the Interactive Normal Curve.
