Agile Technology Solutions (ATS), a center within the Achievement and Assessment Institute (AAI) at the University of Kansas, helps public agencies develop high-volume, highly scalable and multi-device-compatible Software as a Service (SaaS) web applications to meet public needs. We are a team of experienced IT professionals with many years of high-volume software product development experience that analyze a client’s technology needs and then design, develop, test, host, and provide post-production support for all web applications that we develop.

Our flagship program is the Kite® Suite, a SaaS-based online assessment platform used by multiple state departments of education. Incorporating the latest innovative software technology solutions, the Kite Suite can deliver a variety of assessment items, including custom simulation and technology-enhanced item types, in a variety of ways for students with a wide range of skills and abilities.
