Putting Testing to the Test with Jeff Elliott of UWorld: Remote Possibilities

 

If anyone can prognosticate the precarious state of testing and assessing students during COVID-19 and beyond, Jeff Elliott can. As Chief Operating Officer of UWorld, a company used by more than 2 million students from secondary through graduate and professional certification for high-stakes online learning tools, he can see clearly through the chaos. In this episode, Jeff talks about the barriers as well as the opportunities that this catastrophe presents.

UWorld is the worldwide leader in online learning to prepare for high-stakes exams. Since 2003, UWorld has helped millions of undergraduate, graduate, and professional students prepare for their exams. At the core of UWorld’s mission is an obsession with quality so that students receive only the best in learning resources.

With challenging practice questions that mirror the real tests and unrivaled explanations, students can efficiently and effectively prepare for every topic on their exams.

Prior to joining UWorld, Elliott was President of Voyager Sopris Learning where he led the company’s efforts to provide innovative, evidence-based instructional solutions to help schools surpass their achievement goals. As President/CEO of Massachusetts-based Virtual High School—an online learning provider—he led the company’s efforts to provide fully virtual and blended learning programs focused on career and college readiness, with a specific emphasis in STEM.

Jeff served as President/CEO of Oklahoma City-based Advanced Academics from 2003 to 2012; under his leadership, the organization grew into one of the country’s leading providers of comprehensive, online learning models for public school students, and he led the company’s pioneering strategy to serve at-risk students.
