TRUE Text Messaging!

CareCast uses true SMS text messaging, not "SMTP" or "email-based" text messaging as many companies do. This is important because only SMS text messages are truly supported by the cellular networks – SMTP messages merely "piggyback" on the cellular networks with the lowest delivery priority, no way to ensure the messages are in fact received, and have a low reliability and deliver ability rating.

Targeted Messaging

CareCast is able to send messages to everyone in your database…or just select groups of people. There are an unlimited number of groups you can create, edit, and customize.

CareCast delivers targeted messaging options to all of these groups and our flexible "user permissions" options ensure that only those persons whom you grant security permissions are able to send messages.

How It Works

TestPoint is a Web-based testing tool that helps Christian schools with the academic placement of students in grades K-12. It’s not intended to determine where to place students, but rather is a very accurate tool to assist schools in this decision. It also helps reduce the liability of the school from claims called “Failure to Educate” that are being filed by some parents and students who allege they were academically placed wrongly in the school when enrolled.

Admissions Placement Tests: Educators contend that to be effective in the delivery of instruction to students, proper academic assessment should take place whenever students enroll in schools. Placement or assessment testing can help determine what students know and where they should be placed in the school. With TestPoint, schools can leave behind current methods used for academic placement. These methods range from using manual achievement tests, school-made tests, or no tests at all.

All tests can be taken on-line and on-site at your school. The content areas that are tested are: Language, Reading, and Mathematics. After completion of the tests, a score sheet is generated for the school that can be used for student placement. Each school is responsible for establishing their own academic requirements for admission.

Assessment Tests: TestPoint offers a tool for testing and assessment in Language, Reading, and Mathematics for students completing grades K-12. This tool can be used for single subject assessment, for individual students, or for entire classes.

  • The test ordering was easy, and the instructions for helping students log on and take the test were very clear. I think our students enjoyed taking the tests online. I know I enjoyed not having to copy and mail tests and answers back."

  • My students said it was faster, and they liked how easy it was to make changes to answers before submitting the test. One student pointed out that when she had to make corrections using the previous system, she always worried whether or not she had erased an answer well enough so that there would be no misunderstanding. She loved the fact that there were no erasures involved with the new system."

  • Our school has been using TestPoint as an entrance exam for about four years. It has been a great tool in assessing new students entering our school to verify that they could meet the academic challenges in our classrooms. It has also proven to be advantageous to these student's parents to see in what areas their child may be weak or may be excelled. It shows our prospective families that we take seriously the academic standing of all the students in our school. This online test has proven to be very valuable to our school."
