Virtual Assessment Guide

Everything you need to learn who your students are and assess where they are as readers.

Assessment is about knowing your students, connecting with them, and figuring out what they need to learn so they can thrive.

Our assessments are designed to be administered one-on-one, so you can get to know each student and build a connection with them from the first day of school. Additionally, our assessments provide impactful progress monitoring throughout the school year.

In this course, you’ll learn how to use the “Big 5” to inform instructional practices and identify areas in which your students are proficient and where they may need more help.
