Avant Assessment

Enabling Fluency

Avant Blue Reports

Avant Assessment, developers of the first internationally recognized online language testing standard (STAMP), tapped into a massive demand for their services and quickly moved to expand the variety and capacity of their products. They earned the trust of educators, employers, and government agencies across the world, but with their rapid growth needed help scaling their tech infrastructure. Avant asked Twenty Ideas to restructure and redesign its various products that were hard to manage and in need of a modernized product design.

Our Challenge

1. Unify a broad suite of systems and technologies to enable seamless software management for Avant.

2. Provide language learners and teachers with convenient, intuitive, and engaging digital assessments for measuring multilingual mastery.

Our Solution

We built a new cloud-first foundation enabling a faster idea-to-launch cycle, all while avoiding costly downtime. This groundwork paved the way for redesigning Avant products from the ground up.

Bringing It All Together

Our team analyzed Avant's eight different assessment engines and identified the optimal infrastructure and interface to apply across its portfolio. Then, we consolidated all Avant offerings onto one modern, cloud-based platform, applied consistent branding and design, and implemented processes for on-going project management – enabling Avant to grow while better serving its users.
