Assessment
Reading Achievement at a Glance
Grades 1  8
English and Spanish Forms
Professional Development Available 
Reading Achievement at a Glance  Reading Assessments is a valid, reliable, easily scored battery of gradelevel reading assessments that can be administered as a classroom assessment or individually. These reading assessments provide teachers, principals, and students with a diagnostic "picture" of student skill development in reading comprehension, writing, spelling, punctuation, problem solving, and critical thinking. The reading assessments:
 Tell teachers where each individual student is functioning in reading and writing and what has to be done to reach or exceed gradelevel standards.
 Are quick to administer and userfriendly for both teachers and students.
 Provide the diagnostic information required to bridge the gap between daily instruction and the rigorous demands of state standards and assessments.
 Mirror the demands of today's assessments in which multiplechoice and constructedresponse questions are required.
 Allow students to demonstrate the ability to transfer what they have learned to situations that reflect the concepts and demands of state and district standards.
 Take the guesswork out of planning classroom instruction for maximum student achievement.
 Make it possible for a teacher to predict, at any time during the school year, how a student would perform on a state test or other normreferenced assessment.
 Are an efficient, costeffective way to determine what students know presently and what needs to be taught to meet district and state standards.
Components: Individual reading assessments: Grades 18 (English or Spanish), administration/scoring directions included.

Math+ Math Skills at a Glance  Math Tests
Grades 3  10
Professional Development Available 
Math+ is a math test that assesses those automatic, prerequisite math skills—the fundamental enabling math skills—required for success at all levels of math problem solving. This diagnostic math test is userfriendly and serves as a predictor of success on today's standardized math tests.
The test items sample universal content of accepted and widely used mathematics textbooks, diverse curriculum materials, precise gradelevel expectations, and local and state standards. They are the basic math skills that every student should have mastered by the end of fourth grade.
Today, math students must have an automatic command of basic math skills (NCTM 2006). Without these skills, students become submerged in "finger" or "stick" counting—and there is no time for that on today's math tests. Facility with the basic enabling skills allows a student to focus on the thinking processes required to solve a problem. Authors of standardized math tests assume that students already have the fundamental prerequisites for gradelevel problem solving.
Math+ tests 10 basic skill areas and includes a problemsolving/criticalthinking section.
Addition 
Numbers/Roman Numerals 
Graphs 
Subtraction 
Fractions 
Geometry 
Multiplication 
Decimals 
Problem Solving/ 
Division 
Measurement 
Critical Thinking 
A profile grid is included with each set of math test directions to chart individual student or class progress. When Math+ is used as a pretest, it determines present level of functioning and can serve as a source for baseline data.
With the diagnostic information from the Math+ math test, teachers know what students can do presently and what they need to learn to ensure future success.
Components: Reproducible Math Test Masters: Teacher Directions, Student Sheets, Answer Key, Diagnostic Profile Grid.
