BLOOMINGTON, Minn. -- January 22, 2013

Pearson today announced the release of Q-interactive^™, an innovative mobile
solution for professionals involved in the administration of psychological,
neuropsychological and other diagnostic interactive assessments.

Q-interactive leverages the ease and portability of current Apple^® iPad^®
tablet technology, allowing clinicians to choose and customize batteries and
administer, score and manage clinical assessments anytime, anywhere. With this
technology, test administration and scoring are streamlined so clinicians can
capture and record critical client behaviors and nuances that are crucial to
successful assessment and treatment. Data from a four-month public beta
throughout the United States revealed that clinicians using Q-interactive
realized an average time savings of 30 percent when compared with using paper
and pencil, and an average of 35 percent in cost savings.

“The clinicians who participated in our public beta agree: The launch of
Q-interactive truly represents a groundbreaking turning point for interactive
clinical assessments,” said Linda Gerardi, director of Q-interactive at
Pearson, who shared feedback from beta participants:

  *Dr. Sheila Balog, a psychologist who practices in multiple states, said,
    “Q-Interactive has moved psychological testing into the 21^st century! The
    portability and accessibility of the materials and my data are unrivaled
    in the testing industry. Flying with two iPads is much easier than
    transporting kits, or spending extra money to purchase multiple sets of
    materials. The platform is extremely easy to learn and use, and made my
    transition from paper materials to electronic administration seamless.”
  *Dr. Richard J. Perrillo, a neuropsychologist in private practice in San
    Francisco, who administered nearly 130 subtests during the beta, said, “I
    love the way Q-interactive reduces examiner fatigue.”
  *A high school psychologist from Illinois who administered more than 100
    subtests, commented, “Q-interactive has singlehandedly changed the future
    of psychological assessments for us as school psychologists. It is very
    user-friendly and has dramatically cut down the amount of time I need to
    both administer and score assessments. The days of carrying bags and
    briefcases full of heavy testing instruments are a thing of the past.”

Q-interactive frees clinicians from having to carry and manage multiple
manuals, stimulus books, record forms, notepads, a stopwatch and
manipulatives, while providing everything they need to be fully prepared.
Q-interactive not only puts a comprehensive library of assessment tools right
in the palm of their hands, but provides much-needed portability in today’s
24x7 world.

Q-interactive’s assessment library offers an array of test batteries and
subtests for assessing domains such as ability, achievement, memory, executive
function and language. Currently, the following assessments and subtests are
available in the Q-interactive Assessment Library, with more to come in the
near future:

  *WAIS–IV(Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale – Fourth Edition)
  *WISC–IV(Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children – Fourth Edition)
  *CVLT–II (The California Verbal Learning Test – Second Edition)
  *CVLT–C(The California Verbal Learning Test – Children’s Version)
  *D–KEFS(Delis-Kaplan Executive Function System) – Selected tests
