The ED Performance Assessment Series is an assessment tool for teachers to

    use in planning instruction and for measuring student progress in the general

    curriculum. The data is based on the student’s ability to function in the general curriculum.

The data generated by the assessment is a valuable tool in measuring what a

    student knows and what he does not know. Using this data, the teacher can

    create a more effective Individual Education Program for each student by

    choosing objectives that are relevant to the student’s current needs.

The program can be accessed from any computer. Immediate results are

    available to the teacher to facilitate the student’s learning and to more

    accurately determine what is needed to enhance their ability to learn.

The assessments are to be administered at least 2 and possibly 3 times a year

    (At the beginning of the school year, and at the end of the school year to

    measure a student’s gains). Teachers will receive a reminder email in

    advance of the scheduled testing times.

Student Testing

    The teacher must log off before logging on the student.

    Choose the test you wish to administer. (reading or math)

    Enter the school’s Site ID.

    Enter the student’s ID (social security number).

    Enter student’s password (first initial and last name written in lower case). Student will begin test.

    Tests are not timed. The student can stop and restart at any time at the teacher’s direction. The student can be logged back on where he left off. The test questions are administered randomly; therefore, not all students will receive the same items to begin the assessment. The first random items at each grade are adjusted to a lower level of difficulty so that the student will build confidence in taking the test.

    The system will spoil the test if the student is going too fast and is presumed guessing or if the student is putting the same letter answer on most questions. The teacher can spoil the test if the test is invalid.

Student may receive appropriate modifications.

Using Data
