Traditional assessments focus on standards for one grade level at a time, making it challenging to determine overall student placement or to focus on individual student needs. Scantron Performance Series provides students with tests tailored to their proficiencies. The online test adjusts automatically to each student’s ability level, generating more difficult questions if the student is answering correctly and easier ones if the student is answering incorrectly. The result is a valid and reliable scaled score which can be used to measure academic growth – just like a yardstick is used to measure a child’s growth in height! Students at Little Flower School take the Scantron assessments for math and reading at the beginning, middle, and end of the year in Grades 2-8. Additionally, students in Grades 3-8 take the Faith Knowledge Assessment through Scantron each spring.
