Monitor, Analyze, and Predict Student Growth
Indiana is ahead of the game. Prior to the announcement of ESSA, Indiana's landmark NCLB waiver demonstrated Indiana’s commitment to excellent education, as well your desire (and ability) to make smart local decisions for our students. Quality formative assessments are critical for tracking student learning progression, no doubt! However, collecting student data is pointless unless data is translated into insightful information. Student data should be analyzed from every angle. This is the key to insightful decision-making in both the classroom and the boardroom.
Indiana DOE has approved the Scantron Ascensus Growth with Analytics for testing and analysis of student assessment data.
You have probably used Scantron's accurate and reliable scanners and forms but did you know that Scantron’s assessment solutions go way beyond bubble sheets? We are also a leader in online assessment and analytics, delivering more than 100 million assessments online since 2008. In fact, Scantron's computer-adaptive testing was one of the first of its kind! We're committed to meeting you where you are and helping you get to where you want to be. Think outside the bubble and explore Scantron's online assessment and analytics solutions.
