Comprehensive Evaluation

Assessment

Overview

 

Evaluating strengths and weaknesses unique to each student is the core foundation of building academic success. At Achievement Learning Center, our evaluation process is built on widely recognized testing and assessments used in both the educational and psychological communities. The areas covered are reading, math, writing, vocabulary and spelling. Once a student’s skill level is ascertained, we take it a step further by identifying a student’s preferred learning style and method of motivation.

Our evaluation is further enhanced by historical information provided by the student’s parents, which reflects overall development, as well as habits and practices within the home. This comprehensive evaluation provides a complete picture of the student, as a whole. 

Our goal is to best determine how to help each child achieve his/her fullest potential.

Woodcock Johnson III

 

The Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Achievement is widely used by educators and school psychologists. It is an individually administered test that measures achievement in the areas of reading, mathematics, written language and knowledge.  Most achievement tests that students encounter in school are group administered, where students "bubble" in answers.  Individual administering of a test allows for observations by the test administrator, which can be very effective when designing a plan for that student  The WJ-III is a test of limits, which means it will evaluate potential and identify both strong and weak skills. The WJ-III (Form B) is administered after 40 hours of instruction in the prescribed program and is a very effective "apples to apples" tool for measuring  growth. This formal tool, as well as other, informal ones, provides a means for measuring ongoing progress.

 

 

Comprehensive Inventory of Basic Skills (CIBS-2) - BRIGANCE

 

The CIBS assesses specific skill areas, identifying areas of strength and weaknesses. The results translate directly into instructional objectives and Achievement Learning Center uses this tool for young students as a means to develop their individual learning plan. The CIBS is individually administered and adapted based on individual student needs.

Note: This test series is administered in a two to two and-a-half hour session.

Advanced Learning System - A+LS ASSESS

 

The ASSESS is a very thorough evaluation of specific skills, including STAAR objectives. The results translate into instructional objectives, which provide Achievement Learning Center the ability to develop a student’s individualized learning plan. The ASSESS is computer administered and is adapted based on individual student needs.

 

 

Student Style Questionaire - SSQ

 

The SSQ evaluates students using four scales: Introversion/Extroversion, Thinking/Feeling, Practical/Imaginative and Organized/Flexible. It measures preferences; not actual behaviors and students are encouraged to respond in terms of what they like to do. The SSQ assists Achievement Learning Center in planning intervention strategies appropriate to a student’s particular style of learning.

 

 

Learning Style Inventory - LSI

 

The Learning Style Inventory is a comprehensive approach to analyzing the conditions under which a student prefers to learn. It assesses individual preferences in the areas of immediate environment, emotion, sociological needs and physical needs. The LSI provides suggested strategies for instructional modifications and allows student involvement in he development of their unique learning plan with Achievement Learning Center.

Note: This test series is administered in a two-and-a-half to three hour session.

We didn't even realize our daughter's learning difficulties in school resulted from a reading deficiency. An individualized remedial reading program has her back on track!”
