Blue Ribbon Schools Assessment


Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence Assessment Software Receives Global ACE Award

My BRSE Assessment Software received a Global ACE Award from the Business Marketing Association.

In July 2015 I was contracted out to create an online assessment and customer relationship management (CRM) software for Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence. Their existing software was slow, buggy, and nearing its end-of-life, and they needed a full-fledged replacement within only 2 months, before the academic year started.

I took on the task of creating an entirely new system from scratch - designing the front-end, back-end, creating all of the database tables, writing the assessment software / CRM software / deployment scripts, providing charts and reports, and handling the hosting. I was very pleased to tackle the project as it was for a very good cause - helping students, parents, teachers, and administrators analyze their schools' performance and discover its strengths and weaknesses, as well as provide feedback and how to improve.

After handling over 25,000 assessments, 60,000 users, and 1.5 million answered survey questions, I am pleased to announce that the software I created recently won a Global ACE Award from the Business Marketing Association (BMA) division of the Association of National Advertisers (ANA). The award was runner-up in the category of Digital Sales Enablement, described as "Digital materials created to help facilitate the sales process."
