VAS Reading Echo

Since mid-2016, Jack Scott, Managing Director, has been contracted as the lead developer on the VAS Reading Echo SaaS web application. This application is designed to test the English reading skills of school students and offer advice to help them overcome any learning difficulties. Jack inherited this system from another developer who abandoned the client and brought this system into production by early 2017, and since then have been addressing bugs and adding new features as required.

This system is built similarly to WorkZerk, with an MS-SQL database backend with ASP.NET Web API server-side application. However, the front-end is entirely built on the client, with almost no traditional ASP.NET MVC views. Instead, the JavaScript framework BackboneJS was used, which builds views dynamically on the client using AJAX calls.

The application is available at, however it requires a paid login to use.
