Our classroom assessments help teachers reliably and confidently answer the questions, “What progress are students making toward grade- level, end-of-year standards?” and “What comes next for student learning?” Our diagnostic and interim assessments, for grades K–11 in ELA/Literacy, and, in mathematics grades K–8, Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry are available on multiple leading testing platforms. They are designed to minimize testing time and maximize information to inform instruction.
