Pre-K – 12 assessment for learning

Our research-based, computerized assessments help educators answer a crucial question: Are my students learning? By delivering precise, real-time information about every student’s learning triumphs and challenges, we set educators—and students—up for success.

We weren’t expecting to see such consistent, major growth for our students across the board. But now that we know what our students are ready to learn before we even begin teaching them, growth is inevitable—even for our gifted and talented and Title I students.
