Computer-Adaptive Tests (CAT)


Developed with over $8M in research grants and backed by 40+ collective years of research, we’re focused on evidence-driven innovation. Our Computer-Adaptive Tests provide a reliable measure of broad achievement and predict high-stakes test outcomes with high accuracy. And, our adaptive tests automatically adjust to students’ skill levels to inform instruction and reliably and accurately identify MTSS/RtI grouping.

aReading (Adaptive Reading) is a simple, efficient computer-adaptive measure of broad reading that is individualized for each student, but may be delivered in a group format in about 15-30 minutes.  It is designed for universal screening.

Aligned to the Common Core State Standards, aReading is more precise than paper-and-pencil assessments and based on over ten years of rigorous research that is built upon the recommendations of the National Reading Panel (2000). See more>>

aMath (Adaptive Math)  is a simple, efficient computer-adaptive measure of broad math that is individualized per student, but may be group administered in about 20-30 minutes. aMath is highly researched and based on the recommendations of the National Math Panel (2008) and the Common Core State Standards.  Students who progress at a typical pace through their math curriculum meet the standards for expected performance. Students with deficits in achievement are identified via aMath to receive further instruction. See more>>
