Act Now to Keep Performance Series
You were recently notified by the NYC DOE that beginning with the 2019-2020 school year the DOE will no longer offer Scantron Performance Series as part of their assessment portfolio. That doesn’t mean you have to miss out on building the data you need to make evidence-based decisions. You can still purchase Performance Series for your school.

Monitor, Analyze, and Predict Student Growth
Quality interim assessments are critical for tracking student learning progression, growth, and grade-level subject attainment. However, collecting student data is pointless unless data is translated into insightful information via a robust, interactive analytics solution. Student data should be analyzed from every angle. This is the key to evidence-based decision-making in both the classroom and the boardroom.
