Q Local™ Scoring and Reporting Software

Q Local™ Scoring and Reporting Software


Pearson's Q Local Software is based on a "pay as you go" concept. It allows you to choose the number of administrations and specific reports you actually need, providing you with a flexible and user-friendly solution. Q Local provides for on-screen administration as well as scoring via key entry of responses or scanning of scannable answer documents.

Enjoy the convenience of desktop administration and scoring...

This powerful and flexible system lets you administer and score more than 30 Pearson assessments right on your desktop.

How It Works:

  • Install the Q Local software on your computer easily from a CD-ROM, download software upgrades from the Internet, or request that upgrades be mailed to you.
