According to Scantron, the Achievement Series is a web-based assessment that helps educators develop and administer online and in-school tests. This system provides immediate results and is available for all grade levels.
With its Achievement Series, Scantron makes it easy to formulate tests that meet federal and state education guidelines. The program allows educators to improve classroom instruction at the teacher level, which in turn makes it easier for teachers to meet individual student needs. The program combines standards-based assessment with computer-adaptive diagnostic testing.
Scantron has pre-developed assessments available for educators as well. Teachers and administrators can choose from options such as the Common Core Item Bank, the Scantron National Item Bank and the Common Core Test Bank. Each offers tests in subjects such as language arts, reading and mathematics and many tests are available in Spanish as well as English.
Scantron is now available and widely used in 39 states, and more than 2 million students take Scantron assessments each year. Educators can see immediate results from Scantron tests and these tests easily identify a student's strengths and weaknesses. Teachers from within a district can compare results and work together to develop a system that benefits more students. Whether a school district uses state standards or follows the Common Core curriculum, the Achievement Series helps educators meet the needs of students.
