Diagnostic Assessments

By using an adaptive diagnostic assessment, student needs are identified down to the sub-skill level providing teachers with an action plan for each student.

HigherSchool assesses each student to determine baseline student understanding. These assessments are research-based, valid, and reliable. Our computer-generated reports provide immediate details of each participating student's assessment results and next steps for remediation. Real time, data driven insights are provided to the instructor and the school staff allowing them to make connections to multiple standards within and across grade levels.

The reports provide our staff and school-based personnel with the tools to insure that our instructional program is infused with the academic objectives of the regular school day in order to develop an action plan for individual and group instruction, and the tools to deliver that instruction in any learning environment. Each student will be administered a diagnostic assessment at the beginning of the program to determine existing academic proficiency and again, as a post-test, to determine academic improvement. Our assessment pinpoints the actual level of performance in order to target instruction.
