'I would like to acknowledge what a wonderful service your online testing is.
'Our school has been screening now for about eight years – twice a year, using your paper tests. We have also marked ourselves and done the number crunching ourselves.
'This year, for the first time, we have used your online service. Wow ... what a breath of fresh air! ... how easy they are to administer, and then transporting the data directly into Excel tables and then the information on each individual for each test ... I have my life back ... not to mention no eye strain ... We can do all that we have done in the past and more!
'Anyway, I wasn’t 100 per cent sure that the move was a good one but now I am – thank you so much.
'We are recommending your service to other schools.'

Happy customer
