|Reading Plus Insight Assessment 3-8
||Provides a comprehensive look at a student’s independent reading skill level in the areas of capacity (comprehension and vocabulary) and efficiency (reading speed). InSight assesses the student’s silent reading comprehension capacity.
Speed: Students read several passages of varying text complexity to determine the highest level at which they are able to consistently demonstrate good comprehension. Students read these passages in an independent format so their comprehension‐based silent reading rates can be measured.
Comprehension: Each assessment passage is followed by rigorously crafted questions to monitor student comprehension performance. Based on their comprehension performance with each passage, students may be presented with easier or more difficult tests to determine the highest level at which they can successfully and consistently demonstrate good comprehension.
Vocabulary Knowledge: InSight evaluates student vocabulary knowledge. Students view a target word and choose the word or phrase that most closely matches the meaning of the target word. Based on the performance, students may be presented with easier or more difficult vocabulary items to determine the highest level at which they can successfully and consistently demonstrate vocabulary knowledge.
|Mathematics Common Core Benchmark||The mathematic benchmark assessment is developed specifically from the Common Core State Standards to be an accurate predictor of standards computational and problem solving mastery. Comprehensive reporting is broken up by Common Core State Standards and will be used to determine grade level and topic placement within Tech2Learn math programs.|
|Big Brainz||Automaticity and fluency in math facts is critical so that students can effectively master higher level math concepts. The assessment will identify the individual facts that the student has mastered and build a sequence for learning and retaining all facts.|
