College- and career-ready standards are changing our expectations about teaching and learning - they're also changing the way we evaluate what students know. For many districts, that means tearing up old assessment blueprints and starting from scratch.
Our subject-area assessment experts have helped districts across the nation build formative assessments to meet their college- and career-ready objectives. We work directly with you to create your assessment blueprints and student assessments that meet your unique goals.
- Develop proven assessment programs that reflect the rigor, coherence, and focus of college- and career-ready standards.
- Gain a deep understanding of content and task types, content standards, and the connection between instruction and assessment.
- Collaborate with dedicated experts to define your district goals, manage deliverables, and design blueprints and assessments.
- Save the time and expense of training teachers to build their own content and assessments.
We take a consultative approach to defining the partnership, goals, and design of your custom assessment program.
We work together to develop a custom assessment blueprint for your
district – including number of items per standard, DOK distribution, content requirements, and quantitative measures for reading passages – based on your unit plans, pacing guides, and other instructional plans.
We finalize the production of customized assessments, either in PDF format or through our online administration tool, designed to measure district instructional goals and the expectations for the CCSS.
