Set skill acquisition on the right path from day one

Early childhood educators need an efficient way to assess students in the early years, sometimes before students can read or write. Children’s Progress Academic Assessment™ (CPAA™) uses audio and visuals to gain insights into student’s skill gaps.  When students provide an incorrect response, CPAA provides scaffolding to help kids learn.

CPAA helps you answer these key questions:

  • What is each student currently able to do and ready to learn?
  • Which skills are emerging?
  • How can we work with each student on specific skills, both in class and at home?
