Kids in poverty need educational resources. You can provide them through Testing for Impact.
When you join the Testing for Impact program, every test you take gives you the opportunity to donate to our Education Pass program, which grants kids admission into one of our tutoring or computer skills classes.

Tutoring classes help keep kids in school. Overcrowded schools and overwhelmed teachers make it easy for kids to fall behind in school, leading to high dropout rates. After tutoring, 89 percent of Children International kids had increased proficiency in math and 91 percent reported increased proficiency in literacy. Knowledge in these core subject areas leads to higher grades and better job opportunities.
Computer training prepares kids for the workforce. Our kids lack regular access to computers, leaving them unable to learn the skills that could help them get better grades and find better jobs. After completing a computer course, 97% our kids increased their proficiency in computer skills, giving them a competitive advantage in school and the job market.
Got a question? We have answers. If you need additional assistance, please feel free to contact Carl Ferrara.
As part of this initiative, we partnered with our friends from Userlytics, a testing platform where users provide feedback for clients through usability tests. Everything from landing pages, videos, mobile apps and other content is reviewed by people like you.
By joining this new program, you will have the opportunity to give back to our Education Pass program through client usability tests. The tests will vary in length and payments will typically range from $5 to $20. It depends on the test.
All you have to do is check a box to donate your testing proceeds to Children International. Every $10 you donate means two kids will receive a tutoring class or computer skills training. Your time = impact for kids. It’s that simple!
At the same time, you can also provide feedback on Children International fundraising materials — making you part of an exclusive group of testers who are shaping content before it’s seen by the general public.
Usability tests are designed to give feedback on product offerings, websites or any other piece of content. Here's an example of one:
Areas typically reviewed in a usability test include site navigation, design/color scheme, specific processes such as check outs, logins, registration and searching for select content on a site. Ultimately, your feedback will help shape the direction of these sites.
You don’t need to be a seasoned tester to join the program, and there’s no right or wrong answer in a usability test. In fact, many clients prefer user testers who have no prior experience with usability testing, leading to more genuine and realistic user experiences.
The Testing for Impact program is breaking new ground and we are excited that you will be part of this journey. Because the program is new, we are keeping the focus on the Education Pass program at this time. As the testing program takes shape and evolves, we will explore additional giving opportunities.
There is no cost and no limits on the number of usability tests you can take. If you qualify for a client usability test, you will have the option to donate your testing proceeds to the Education Pass program. As a rule of thumb, testers with a higher ranking are more likely to be eligible for client tests.
Because Testing for Impact is working with charity-minded people like you, our hope is that your enthusiasm will lead to a better testing experience and a higher tester ranking, so that you will have more opportunity to give back through testing.
You will be joining our partner Userlytics’ platform as a tester. This means all tests will be done on the Userlytics platform, with the option for you to support our Education Pass program through your time in a client usability test.
Userlytics is equally excited about this program. Their CEO is also a Children International sponsor, so they understand the value in giving your time for a bigger impact.
As mentioned, all tests will be conducted on the Userlytics platform. You will be notified via email from Userlytics and the email message will look like the following:
Make sure that you add Userlytics to your address book.
You will need the following: Mac with OSX 10.9.5 or higher OR a PC with Windows 7 or higher, high-speed internet access, and a standard internet browser program (such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome) and a working built in-mic. You will also be required to download the Userlytics recorder, an easy to use application that will record your usability test.
Yes. While we would love for you to donate your earnings to help kids in poverty, you can also earn money for any Userlytics test for which you qualify. You can also choose how much of your tester earnings you would like to donate to CI, so if you want to donate $5 for a $10 test, you have that option. It's all up to you.
