The Milestones Assessment is right around the corner, and chances are, you’re trying to find a way to support your students as they prepare. But with so many options out there, how do you know which will be the most effective for your students? And most importantly, what can you do NOW to help them?
That’s where GCA’s Mastery Assessments come in, and good news! You’re just in time to take advantage of our special offer! Mastery Assessments are now available at a reduced rate through the remainder of the 2019 spring semester.
Mastery Assessments can be administered before the Milestones and they will provide immediate feedback to help you understand your students’ level of mastery toward the critical concepts and skills in a specific grade and content area. Mastery Assessments represent year-long content and will help you identify gaps in student learning. This allows for additional teaching and learning opportunities as you can quickly move from results to instructional next steps in a short window of time.
Mastery Assessments were specially designed with you and your students in mind. They are rigorous selected-response summative assessments, featuring a range of Depth of Knowledge (DOK) levels. Each answer choice reflects common errors or common misconceptions. In addition, all items include rationales that describe the most likely error or misconception a student made or has when selecting specific answer choices. These rationales can be used to target instruction.
Mastery Assessments are available online through our assessment and instruction platforms, District and School Connect (DS Connect) or DS Connect Lite. Instant, accurate results are available after your student completes the assessment – no scoring necessary! Along with results, detailed reports with valuable student performance data are instantly available to teachers, schools, and districts at this pivotal part of the school year.
GCA’s Mastery Assessments are available in Grade 3 English Language Arts/Reading Comprehension and Grade 5 Mathematics and can be administered to a large or small group of students.
We can help you gauge your students’ readiness for the Milestones!
