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.

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.
The data indicates what the student knows and does not know.
