The Office of Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Richmond is using Performance Series by Scantron again this year as a diagnostic instructional tool. Performance Series is a web-based, computer-adaptive assessment administered in grades 1 to 8.
The purpose of the assessment is to provide teachers with data to monitor students' academic growth and progress over time. As an instructional tool, the data will be used by teachers to create and tailor instruction to meet the needs of all students throughout the school year. Performance Series assessments are given three times per year in the areas of math and reading. The fall assessments will provide baseline skill development data, the winter assessments will act as a monitor for student academic growth based on instructional practices, and the spring assessments will provide a snapshot of student performance over the course of the school year. It is important to remember that this is one source of data used throughout the school year to measure student learning and progress. Parents and guardians will receive additional information on assessment windows and student reports throughout the school year. Because we are partners in education, your support at home is important to the development of our students. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child's school with questions.
We thank you for entrusting us with your precious children, and we look forward to watching them grow.
