Reading Assessments


Screen and Monitor Students’ Literacy Skills

FastBridge reading assessments combine Computer-Adaptive Tests (CAT) to screen student achievement and highly sensitive Curriculum-Based Measures (CBM) to monitor growth over time. Use both for quick, reliable insights into student literacy to guide on-time, effective interventions that accelerate students toward their goals. The reading suite can be used on its own to assess students’ specific strengths and skill gaps in the area of literacy, or in conjunction with math and social-emotional behavior (SEB) measures for a more holistic view of achievement. It’s all included in one affordable subscription.
